Eighth International Conference on Advanced Communications and Computation

Topic: Supercomputing and HPC

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.

PDC Summer School: Introduction to High Performance Computing

Topic: Supercomputing and HPC

Are you interested in using one of Europe's faster supercomputers and getting university credit points doing so? Would you like to learn how to write programmes for parallel supercomputers, such as a Cray or a cluster of Graphics Processing Units? Do you need to optimize already-existing scientific programme code for high-performance computing? If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, or if you want to learn the basics about high-performance parallel computing, the PDC Center for High Performance Computing, in conjunction with the School of Computer Science and Communication (CSC) at KTH, is organizing the PDC Summer School. During two intensive summer weeks at the KTH campus, summer school participants are introduced to programming supercomputers, and also learn how to improve programmes for parallel scientific applications so that they run more efficiently. Participants are encouraged to bring their own problems or programmes for discussion - where possible, these may be used as the basis of the course project. During the summer school, participants will be given access to PDC's Cray XC40 system, Beskow, which is the fastest supercomputers in the Nordic countries.

Second European Big Data Value Forum

Topic: e-Infrastructure Policy

The European Big Data Value Forum is a key European event for industry professionals, business developers, researchers, and policy makers to discuss the challenges and opportunities of the European data economy and data-driven innovation in Europe. On July 1, 2018, Austria will take over the Presidency of the Council of the European Union. One of the top priorities will be maintaining Europe's competitiveness through digitization. As part of its 2018 Presidency of the Council of the European Union, Austria will host the second European Big Data Value Forum. Keynotes and presentations will range from cutting-edge industrial applications of Big Data technologies, artificial intelligence, innovative business cases of the data economy, inspiring future visions, and insights on EU policy-making and R&D&I funding in this area. Ideas exchanged at the European Data Forum have impact on the design of future research and innovation programmes and policy decisions both at the EU and Member States level. This will drive data-driven innovation further and strengthen the European data economy as well as enhancing its positioning worldwide.

Research Data Alliance's 12th Plenary Meeting

Topic: e-Science

RDA encourages members to submit session proposals for the following categories: Working and/or Interest Group sessions. These sessions provide existing RDA groups the opportunity for discussion, sharing experiences and best practices, and laying down concrete action plans; although members are free to design the meeting format, a working meeting structure is strongly encouraged. Joint meetings: These are meetings that combine multiple Working and/or Interest Groups to explore potential synergies, share findings and coordinate efforts. Birds of a Feather (BoF) sessions: If there is something you wish to see discussed but is not currently covered in an Working or Interest Group, you are encouraged to submit an application for a BoF session. Aimed at exploring new future Working or Interest Group topics, BoFs can help you identify an audience, build support and start the work on your Case Statement or Charter.
