Fifth GPU Programming Hackathon

Topic: Supercomputing and HPC

General-purpose Graphics Processing Units (GPGPUs) potentially offer exceptionally high memory bandwidth and performance for a wide range of applications. The challenge in utilizing such accelerators has been the difficulty in programming them. Today, these devices can be programmed with the CUDA/C++ programming platform or with OpenACC Directives for Accelerators, which offer straightforward extensions to C++ and Fortran to address this programming hurdle. Alternative programming paradigms such as OpenCL or Kokkos can also be employed. EuroHack provides a unique opportunity for current or prospective users groups of large hybrid CPU-GPU systems to either (1) port their (potentially) scalable application to GPU accelerators, or (2) optimize an existing GPU-enabled application, on a state-of-the-art GPU system. The goal is that the development teams leave at the end of the week with applications running on GPUs, or at least with a clear roadmap of how to get there.

HARC19 Workshop

Topic: Cloud computing and on-demand computing

Submission deadline 24 June 2019

HARC stands for Humanware Advancing Research in the Cloud, which is a project to explore, advance, and develop evidence of the impact of the use of human resources—also known as "humanware" - to support and increase the use of Cloud-based cyberinfrastructure (CI) by researchers in university environments in North America. The HARC19 workshop will explore the important role of humans, in support roles, in making Cloud computing useful in research settings. Cloud computing is clearly a type of cyberinfrastructure, which is defined as comprising "computing systems, data storage systems, advanced instruments and data repositories, visualization environments, and people, all linked together by software and high performance networks to improve research productivity and enable breakthroughs not otherwise possible". This workshop will focus on the "and people" part of cyberinfrastructure, and in particular on the role of people in supporting the use of commercial Cloud resources in research. The organizers seek papers which cover all aspects of human involvement in Cloud-based CI environments. Those submissions which discuss elements of support for commercial Cloud resources used for research are particularly desirable.

24th International Conference on Conceptual Structures

Topic: Applications

The International Conferences on Conceptual Structures focuses on the formal analysis and representation of conceptual knowledge, at the crossroads of artificial intelligence, human cognition, computational linguistics, and related areas of computer science and cognitive science. The ICCS conferences evolved from a series of seven annual workshops on conceptual graphs, starting with an informal gathering hosted by John F. Sowa in 1986. Recently, graph-based knowledge representation and reasoning (KRR) paradigms are getting more and more attention. With the rise of quasi-autonomous AI, graph-based representations provide a vehicle for making machine cognition explicit to its human users. The aim of the ICCS 2019 conference is to build upon its long standing expertise in graph-based KRR and focus on providing modelling, formal and application results of graph-based systems.

Ninth International Conference on Advanced Communications and Computation

Topic: Applications

The diversity of semantics of data, context gathering and processing led to complex mechanisms for applications requiring special communication and computation support in terms of volume of data, processing speed, context variety, etc. The new computation paradigms and communications technologies are now driven by the needs for fast processing and requirements from data-intensive applications and domain-oriented applications - medicine, geoinformatics, climatology, remote learning, education, large scale digital libraries, social networks, etc. Mobility, ubiquity, multicast, multi-access networks, data centres, Cloud computing are now forming the spectrum of de factor approaches in response to the diversity of user demands and applications. In parallel, measurements control and management (self-management) of such environments evolved to deal with new complex situations. INFOCOMP 2019 continues a series of events dedicated to advanced communications and computing aspects, covering academic and industrial achievements and visions. Tutorials on specific related topics and panels on challenging areas are encouraged.
