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

Submission deadline 1 June 2018

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 Information Universe Conference

Topic: e-Science

The key topic of the IU conference series is: "What is the role of information in the Universe and its description?" In an epoch where scientists need to handle Big Data and simulations, find highly organized systems in nature and grapple with the role of information in physics and other sciences, this appears to be one of the more fundamental questions that needs to be answered in order to understand the world around us. The Information Universe conference intends to unite various approaches, addressing the fundamental role of information both in nature ("in vivo") and in data analysis, theory and computer modelling ("in vitro").The conference will approach the key role of information from the point of view of several disciplines: e.g. cosmology, physics, mathematics, life sciences, computer science - including quantum computing - and neuroscience. The deeper role of information is formulated in different ways by these various disciplines, leading to a multitude of fundamental questions.

EMBO Practical Course on Integrative Modelling of Biomolecular Interactions

Topic: Applications

Proteins and their intricate network of interactions are the mainstay of any cellular process. Dissecting these networks at atomic detail is invaluable, as this paves the route to a mechanistic understanding of biological function and provides the first essential step toward the development of new drugs. Because of the challenges associated with experimental techniques, structural biologists have to resort more and more these days to complementary computational methods. The EMBO Practical Course will present docking-based computational methods and related bioinformatics approaches, aiming at predicting how proteins interact with other biomolecules or ligands. Lectures will provide the theoretical background on state-of-the-art algorithms for sampling and scoring docking models, describe the use of low- and high-resolution information, and conservation- and coevolution-based interfaces prediction methods. Further, protein-peptide and protein-ligand interaction, as well as the young field of genome structure determination from sequencing information will also be covered to broaden the scope of the course beyond traditional protein-protein interactions. Roughly half of the EMBO Practical Course will consist of practical sessions, during which the students will run computations on interesting biological problems. Finally, to encourage interaction between instructors and students and stimulate discussions, students will be prompted to present their own research and problems during dedicated sessions.
