Digital Day 2018
This one-day event will bring together high-level stakeholders in the fields of digital technology and telecommunication. The event is organised by the European Commission under the Bulgarian Presidency of the Council of the European Union. There is one session that includes HPC: Investments in HPC, ubiquitous connectivity and data infrastructures are necessary for the EU to be at the forefront of innovation. These technologies can enable the digital transformation of economy and society in general. The gain from these investments will only materialise if there will be a sufficient number of digitally skilled people to develop, roll-out and use these new technologies. The objective of this session is to highlight the need for EU investment in digital capacities in areas such as HPC, Artificial intelligence, Cybersecurity, 5G and Connected and Automated Mobility, and advanced digital skills to ensure European socio-economic progress and leadership.
High Performance Computing (HPC)
"Shaping Europe's Digital Future - High Performance Computing for Extreme Scale Scientific and Industrial Applications" is an event on High Performance Computing co-organised by the Bulgarian Presidency of the Council of the European Union and the European Commission. It will take place on 19 April 2018 at the National Palace of Culture, Sofia, Bulgaria. Gathering more than 250 scientists and industrialists as well as representatives of ministries from the South and Eastern Europe, the event aims to raise awareness on the role of High Performance Computing (HPC) to transform Europe's digital future by providing solutions to a wide range of societal, scientific, and industrial challenges. Panellists will discuss the role of HPC in personalised medicine and in understanding the human brain and the link of HPC with other emerging computing paradigms, such as quantum computing. The event will also address how the proposal of the European Commission on the EuroHPC Joint Undertaking will impact the European scientific, economic and societal developments, including digital skills, focusing on the wider area of South and Eastern Europe. A Bulgarian high-level government representative, together with Mariya Gabriel, Commissioner for Digital Economy and Society, and Thierry Breton, CEO Atos will open this one-day event.
This PLAN-E Plenary. We will address the long tail of science, the long tail of data, the developments on the PLAN-E side of the EOSC, focusing on FAIR-activities
European HPC Summit Week 2018 in Ljubljana will gather main HPC stakeholders in Europe. Similar to previous years also this edition will offer a wide variety of workshops covering a number of application areas where supercomputers are key, as well as HPC technologies and infrastructures. European HPC Summit Week also offers a great opportunity to network with all relevant European HPC stakeholders, from technology suppliers and HPC infrastructures to scientific and industrial HPC users in Europe.
Sherpa Meeting June
EuroHPC Sherpa Meeting to discuss EuroHPC governance. Defining the EuroHPC JU 2019-2020 activities, the calls for proposals and the country budget contributions
33rd ISC High Performance Conference
ISC High Performance, the leading supercomputing event in Europe, will combine a strong line-up of technical experts in the field of HPC with exhibits from leading supercomputing centres, as well as hardware and software vendors. ISC High Performance presents state-of-the-art applications, architectures and trends in supercomputing. As a result, this HPC event has created a unique atmosphere of collaboration and co-operation. ISC High Performance is dedicated to tackling HPC technological development and its application in scientific fields, as well as its adoption in commercial environments. This year, the team aspires to bring another outstanding conference to an enthusiastic crowd. The ISC 2018 programme chair, Professor Horst Simon, and the programme team have carefully selected 13 topics, which they believe will appeal to the global HPC community. These topics will be addressed in the invited programme.The 2018 topics will be presented by speakers considered experts in their chosen field. The contributed programme, tutorials, workshops and the exhibition will once again complement the invited programme.
