Oct. 4, 2021 — 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 Tuesday, Oct. 12, 4:00 pm CEST. The event is free.
Tomasz Malkiewicz will present the lecture entitled: “LUMI: the EuroHPC pre-exascale system of the North.”
Malkiewicz is a Management Group member of CSC – IT Center for Science Ltd. of Espoo, Finland, and is also the executive manager of Nordic e-Infrastructure Collaboration (NeIC).
The EuroHPC initiative is a joint effort by the European Commission and partner countries to establish a world-class ecosystem in supercomputing to Europe (read more at https://eurohpc-ju.europa.eu). One of its first concrete efforts is to install the first three “precursor to exascale” supercomputers. Finland, together with 9 other countries from the Nordics and central Europe, will collaboratively host one of these systems in Kajaani, Finland. This system, LUMI, will be one of the most powerful and advanced computing systems on the planet at the time of its installation. The vast consortium of countries with an established tradition in scientific computing and strong national computing centers will be a key asset for the successful infrastructure. In this talk we will discuss the LUMI infrastructure and its great value and potential for the research community.
NeIC’s Puhuri project aims at facilitating seamless access to LUMI and pan-European services for researchers. Based on Puhuri, a model for executing Nordic projects, from a business case to benefits monitoring after completion of a project, will be presented.

Virtual ICM Seminars in Computer and Computational Science
Since March 2020, more than 2,500 people have participated in virtual meetings organized by ICM (SCFE + 17 seminars) from almost all the time zones. The Supercomputing Frontiers Europe website with access to the SCFE and seminars’ recordings, has been viewed by more than 17k visitors from 122 countries. The organizer of meetings with outstanding scientists is the Interdisciplinary Centre for Mathematical and Computational Modelling –ICM University of Warsaw.
About the Interdisciplinary Centre for Mathematical and Computational Modelling (ICM), University of Warsaw (UW)
The Interdisciplinary Centre for Mathematical and Computational Modelling (ICM) University of Warsaw is involved in interdisciplinary scientific research based on mathematical modeling, computer simulations and modeling, multi-scale and large-scale calculations. The popular meteo.pl weather portal has been established by using ICM computed weather forecasts. ICM researchers study problems related to civil aviation (collaborating with ICAO), modeling of social processes and most recently working on ICM Epidemiological Model for the COVID-19 epidemic in Poland. ICM took part in securing access for Polish scientists to the entire body of scientific literature, including over 8,000 journal 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. Recently, ICM engineers have established a production 100Gbps connection over 12,375 4 miles CAE-1 (Collaboration Asia Europe-1) line between Warsaw and Singapore.
