Supercomputing Frontiers Europe again in Poland


18 Feb 2019 Warsaw - From 11 to 14 March 2019, Warsaw will host a world-class experts event in supercomputers - thanks to Supercomputing Frontiers Europe 2019 (SCFE2019). The European edition of the conference, which for five years has been presenting the most innovative, largest scale solutions in computational sciences from all over the world, is organised by the Interdisciplinary Centre for Mathematical and Computational Modelling, University of Warsaw (ICM UW).

The first three editions of the conference took place in Singapore, organised by A*STAR Computational Resource Centre and National Supercomputing Centre Singapore. Previous editions showcased a successful scientific programme with eminent plenary keynote speakers such as Whitfield Diffy, Dimitri Kuznietsov, Karlheinz Meier, Thomas Sterling, Satoshi Matsuoka, Robert Harrison, Rick Stevens, Jack Dongarra, Alan Gara, John Gustafson, Srinivas Aluru, Baroness Susan Greenfield, and Horst Simon.

During Supercomputing Frontiers Europe 2019 experts will share their knowledge about supercomputer architecture and its interdisciplinary use in contemporary science. The programme will include sessions on, among others:

  • Supercomputing applications in domains of critical impact in scientific, economic and human terms, and especially those requiring computing resources approaching Exascale;
  • Optical interconnects;
  • Genomics, -omics of all kinds and Systems Biology;
  • Brain simulations, Neuromorphic computing, Connectome;
  • Knowledge Graphs, graph computations, topology.

The keynote speakers will be:

  • Dr. Rupak Biswas, Director of Exploration Technology at NASA Ames Research Center and and Manager of the NASA-wide High End Computing Capability Project
  • Prof. Leon Chua from the University of California Berkeley, USA, widely known for his invention of the Memristor and the Chua's Circuit. His research has been recognized internationally through numerous major awards, including 17 honorary doctorates from major universities in Europe and Japan, and 7 USA patents
  • Prof. Paul Messina, Director of Argonne National Laboratory's Computational Science Division, and in 2015-2017 Project Director for the U.S. Department of Energy Exascale Computing Project.

Guests of the event will also be Taisuke Boku from the University of Tsukuba, Japan; David Coster from the Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics; Alex Wright-Gladstein, co-founder of Ayar Labs, a company that is making computing faster and more energy efficient by using light to move data between chips instead of electricity; and many others.

"According to the ranking of the fastest computers in the world, Poland was placed tenth in 2016 among all classified countries in the world, in terms of the combined computing power of scientific computers. Thanks to the location of the Supercomputing Frontiers conference in Poland, we bring our own achievements in the field of computational sciences, including chemistry, physics, engineering, biology, medicine, astronomy and cosmology, as well as give an opportunity to our scientists to engage in dialogue with outstanding creators and leaders in these fields from all over the world", stated Dr. Marek Michalewicz, director of ICM UW and the initiator of Supercomputing Frontiers and Supercomputing Frontiers Europe.

The conference will take place from 11 to 14 March 2019 in the Copernicus Conference Centre at 20 Wybrzeże Kościuszkowskie st., Warsaw. Detailed information and a registration form is available on the SCFE2019 website.

Honorary patronage was confirmed by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education, the Ministry of Digital Affairs, the Ministry of Entrepreneurship and Technology and the Ministry of Investment and Economic Development, as well as the Rector of the University of Warsaw.

The Interdisciplinary Centre for Mathematical and Computer Modeling (ICM), University of Warsaw, is one of the top HPC centres in Poland. ICM is engaged in serving the needs of a large community of computational researchers in Poland through provision of HPC and grid resources, storage, networking and expertise. It has always been an active research centre with high quality research contributions in computer and computational science, numerical weather prediction, visualisation, materials engineering, digital repositories, social network analysis and other areas. The Centre also runs a popular numerical weather forecast service meteo.pl .
