May 5, 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 May 7, 2020 (16:00 CEST). The event is free.
On May 7, Simon Mutch, a postdoctoral research fellow in the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for All-Sky Astrophysics in Three-Dimensions (ASTRO 3D) and a Research Data Specialist in the Melbourne Data Analytics Platform (MDAP) based at the University of Melbourne, will present a lecture titled, “HPC Simulations of the early Universe.”
The lecture will dive into understanding the formation and evolution of the first galaxies in the Universe is a vital piece of the puzzle in understanding how all galaxies, including our own Milky Way, came to be. It is also a key aim of major forthcoming international facilities such as the Square Kilometre Array and James Webb Space Telescope. In order to maximise what we can learn from observations made by these facilities, we need to be able to accurately simulate the early Universe and model how galaxies affected and interacted with their environments.

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.”
