Supercomputing Frontiers Europe 2020 is the sixth edition of the conference series Supercomputing Frontiers which started in 2015 in Singapore and moved to Poland in 2018. It is organised by Interdisciplinary Centre for Mathematical and Computational Modelling (ICM), University of Warsaw.
Over twenty outstanding keynote and invited speakers at Supercomputing Frontiers Europe 2020 will deliver talks on topics spanning various fields of science and technology.
The three keynote speakers and their topics are:
"We have been working on the special programme of this conference for a very long time, in some cases we arranged participation of the key speakers two years in advance, and when the entire programme was finalised, we've been hit by the coronavirus outbreak. This created an opportunity to turn our conference from a niche, specialised conference with limited attendance into an event easily accessible by anybody interested in these topics, anywhere around the globe. The only requirement is access to the internet and a payment of a nominal fee", stated Dr. Marek Michalewicz, Director of ICM and the founder of Supercomputing Frontiers conference series.
The main topics of the 6th edition of SCFE2020 are: computational science requiring substantial supercomputing resources, such as, computational biology, bioinformatics, genomics and (microbiome) metagenomics and (single cell) transcriptomics; Artificial Intelligence (AI) as supporting methodology in multitude of fields; cosmology, astronomy and physics, advanced engineering; ground-breaking, new and upcoming computer architectures, including FPGA, RISC V and neuromorphic architectures as well as EuroHPC initiatives; and quantum internet and communication.
