April 19, 2021 — The Supercomputing Frontiers Europe Conference (SCFE21, taking place July 19-23, 2021, virtually) wishes to spotlight trendsetters and young members of our community with ground breaking ideas which have the potential to change the course of supercomputing. The conference is a platform where we also highlight research domains that might present the greatest potential of becoming the leading applications of supercomputers in the future.

SCFE21 invites original contributions on all topics related to supercomputing, including, but not limited to:

  • Hybrid quantum computing and HPC
  • Hybrid cloud/HPC
  • Convergence of HPC, AI and Big Data
  • Omics and Systems Biology
  • Storage class memory
  • Special architectures
  • Deep learning computing – TPU, GPU and beyond
  • Problem Solving Environments
  • …and more.

The program will incorporate special streams featuring selected achievements in India and Africa. SCFE strives to give an open space for the HPC community to interact and discuss visionary ideas. The SCFE 2021 paper submission closing date is May 16th, 2021. Submitted papers will be subjected to a peer review and carefully evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of exposition.

Scientific committee members who will review submitted papers are: Jean- Thomas Acquaviva, Michael Bader, Piotr Bala, Michael Bussman, Bronis de Supinski, Jack Dongarra, John L. Gustafson, Torsten Hoefler, Daniel S. Katz, Scott Klasky, Julian Kunkel, Ziogas Nikolaos and the chair Marek Michalewicz, among others.

All authors of accepted papers from the conference will be invited by the SCFE2021 program committee to submit and publish their paper (after further independent review) in a special issue of the international journal of Supercomputing Frontiers and Innovations.

About the Organizer

The Interdisciplinary Centre for Mathematical and Computational Modelling (ICM), University of Warsaw, is involved in interdisciplinary scientific research based on mathematical modeling, computer simulations, modeling, multi-scale and large-scale computations. The popular meteo.pl weather portal for the last 27 years has been providing the most accurate weather predictions for Poland and is visited about 200 million times a year. ICM researchers created decision support tools for global civil aviation (in collaboration with ICAO). For nearly a year now ICM is supporting the Polish Government and crisis management authorities in Poland by providing short and long term predictions of  epidemic in Poland using ICM Epidemiological Model for the COVID-19 . ICM plays crucial role in securing access for Polish scientists from over 500 institutions to the entire body of scientific literature, including over 26,000 journal titles, and over 150 000 book titles by maintaining the Virtual Library of Science. ICM networking team has participated in a number of cutting edge networking solutions, both for high throughput and low latency requirements. In 2019, ICM engineers have established a production 100Gbps connection over 12,375 4 miles CAE-1 (Collaboration Asia Europe-1) line between Warsaw and Singapore.
