Coming to ISC 2018: Post 2020 Vision for HPC Workshop

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

ETP4HPC is organizing a workshop at ISC 2018 to prepare the post Horizon 2020 HPC vision and technology roadmap. The event takes place Sunday, June 24 in Frankfurt, Germany.

What will be next? What will be the role of High-Performance Computing and related technologies in the post Horizon 2020 era? What should be the main priorities of the EC Framework Programme 9 in that area? What will be the key assumptions for the next Strategic Research Agenda (SRA) of ETP4HPC, for the HiPEAC vision and other similar documents in the area of HPC, Big Data and AI?

This workshop is the first in a series of events that aim to define a shared vision for the European HPC technology roadmap for the period of 2021-26. This vision should form the basis of the European HPC Research and Innovation Work Pro- grammes following Horizon 2020 (e.g. FP9). We expect our Vision document to be available in the first quarter of 2019. Our partners in the European Big Data and Ar- tificial Intelligence (AI) communities are working on similar documents and we will collaborate with them in order to reach a shared view.

The workshop will emphasize the elements that might influence future HPC roadmaps, including hardware and software technology to be commercialized with- in 2-4 years after completion of the corresponding research projects. The use case areas range from traditional computing techniques to “HPC in the loop” and “HPC in cyber-physical environments”.

Internationally recognized HPC, Big Data and AI experts will present their views on major trends, new focus areas, technology innovations and new HPC use models.

Speakers include:

  • Satoshi Matsuoka, RIKEN
  • Marc Duranton, HiPEAC
  • Rick Stevens, Argonne
  • Jesus Labarta, BSC
  • Dan Reed, University of Utah
  • Dirk Pleiter, Jülich Supercomputing Centre
  • Al Gara, Intel

The proceedings and main conclusions of this workshop will be summarized in a report. In the course of the remaining part of the year, we might set up working groups out of ETP4HPC members and other experts to detail the priorities identified.

A networking buffet dinner will be served after the Workshop.
