Registration Open for EuroHPC Summit Week 2020 Including PRACEdays20

March 5, 2020

March 5, 2020 — The EuroHPC Summit Week (EHPCSW) 2020 will gather the main European HPC stakeholders in Europe — from technology suppliers and HPC infrastructures to scientific and industrial HPC users. As in previous years, PRACE, the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe, organizes the seventh edition of its Scientific and Industrial Conference (PRACEdays20) within the EHPCSW 2020. PRACEdays20 will bring together experts from academia and industry who will present their advancements in HPC-supported science and engineering. The EHPCSW 2020 will provide a great opportunity for the attendees to learn about the latest and most exciting developments and to network.

From chasing new particles to the chaotic life of mayonnaise.

PRACEdays20 is one of Europe’s most important events on HPC in science and industry. The main conference will take place from Tuesday to Thursday and will include a selection of plenary sessions and parallel sessions featuring high-level international speakers. As in previous years, this edition will also offer a variety of workshops covering a number of application areas where supercomputers are key, as well as HPC technologies and infrastructures.

The full timetable of the event can be found here. Some of the highlights include:

  • The scientific keynote speech by Maria Girone, physicist and CTO of CERN openlab, on the computing challenges at CERN and the potential of high-performance computing.
  • An industrial parallel track, as well as several scientific parallel tracks covering the topics “Astrophysics”, “Energy/Renewable Energy” and “Other Domains”. These sessions present scientific advancements in a wide variety of areas — from chasing new particles to hydrogen production or the chaotic life of mayonnaise. Amongst many others, the speakers include Laurent Brodeau from Ocean’s Next who will present the progress in high-resolution ocean simulations, or Stefano Vanni from the University of Fribourg, Switzerland, who will talk about the coming of age of molecular simulations of cellular membranes.
  • Several workshops, for instance on the challenge of delivering HPC in a sustainable manner or on the convergence of AI and HPC. All the workshops are designed to encourage and simplify the active interchange between presenters and attendees.
  • The award ceremony of the PRACE Ada Lovelace Award 2020 and a presentation by the winner, Alice-Agnes Gabriel from the Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich. With this award, PRACE honours Dr. Gabriel’s outstanding research on the physics of earthquakes and her high visibility as a speaker and teacher, with which she stands out as a role model for women in HPC.
  • A Panel Discussion tackling the question: “Will HPC, AI and Data Science be the same in 10 years’ time?” The panel will discuss the evolution towards blending of the traditional simulation-centric research with the new data-centric paradigms for scientific and industrial innovation. The participants are Maria Girone (CERN), Mark Asch (BDEC), Joost VandeVondele (PRACE), Alice-Agnes Gabriel (PRACE Ada Lovelace Award 2020 winner), Jorge Alemida (Critical Software) and Maria Perez (EuroHPC RIAG).
  • A plenary talk and a parallel session on diversity and inclusivity in HPC. The session entitled “Bringing your authentic self to work” is meant to raise awareness and exchange experiences and opinions. Instead of trying to come up with superficial or cosmetic solutions, the idea is to make people think and discuss on how to embrace diversity.
  • Several sessions lead by EuroHPC, the European High-Performance Computing Joint Undertaking. Among else, the EuroHPC State-of-Play, where attendees can get updated on the undertaking’s latest activities in infrastructure, research and innovation or a workshop on industrial user needs.
  • A Poster Session, displaying scientific discoveries, innovation in industry and findings addressing society’s grand challenges.

In addition, a special program of four “Hands-on Workshops for Students” is co-located with PRACEdays20. PRACE students travel grants available for students from outside Portugal to participate.

The main organizers of the EHPCSW 2020 are the European Extreme Data & Computing Initiative (EXDCI-2), the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE), and the European Technology Platform for High-Performance Computing (ETP4HPC). The European Commission (EC) will represent the EuroHPC Joint Undertaking in the organization of the conference. The logistical organization is supported by a local host: for the 2020 edition this will be Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia – Computação Cientifica Nacional (FCT-FCCN), the Portuguese Foundation of Science and Technology.

Further information on the EHPCSW 2020 is available on the event webpage. Registration for the EuroHPC Summit Week and for PRACEdays20 is open here. Registration will close on Friday, March 13, don’t miss out!
