June 1, 2020 — The Interdisciplinary Centre for Mathematical and Computational Modelling (ICM) at the University of Warsaw invites enthusiasts of HPC and all people interested in challenging topics in Computer and Computational Science to the ICM Seminar in Computer and Computational Science that will be held on June 4, 2020 (4:00 p.m. CEST). The event is free.
On June 4, 2020, Cofounder of Julia Computing and professor of Applied Mathematics at Massachusetts Institute of Technology Alan Edelman will present a lecture titled, “High Performance Computing: The Power of Language.”
The lecture will dive into how Julia is now being used for high performance computing for the important problems of today, including climate change and COVID-19. In the presentation, Edelman will describe how language is making all the difference.

ICM Seminars is an extension of the international Supercomputing Frontiers Europe conference, which took place March 23-25th in virtual space.
“The digital edition of SCFE gathered of the order of 1000 participants – we want to continue this formula of Open Science meetings despite the pandemic and use this forum to present the results of the most current research in the areas of HPC, AI, quantum computing, Big Data, IoT, computer and data networks … and many others,” says Dr. Marek Michalewicz, chair of the Organising Committee, SCFE2020 and ICM Seminars in Computer and Computational Science.
Registration for all weekly events is free. The ICM Seminars began with an inaugural lecture on April 1st by Scott Aronson, David J. Bruton Centennial Professor of Computer Science at the University of Texas. Aronson led the presentation titled “Quantum Computational Supremacy and Its Applications.”
