The International Conference for High Performance Computing Networking, Storage, and Analysis 2019 (SC19)

Established in 1988, the annual SC conference continues to grow steadily in size and impact each year. Approximately 5,000 people participate in the technical program, with about 11,000 people overall. The technical program is the heart of SC. It has addressed virtually every area of scientific and engineering research, as well as technological development, innovation, and education. Its presentations, tutorials, panels, and discussion forums have included breakthroughs in many areas and inspired new and innovative areas of computing.

E-CAM ESDW: Mesoscopic simulation models and High-Performance Computing

The Mesoscopic simulation models and High-Performance Computing ESDW (Extended Software Development Workshop) is organised by CECAM-FI (Aalto University, Finland) in collaboration with the CSC IT Center for Science and will mix three different ingredients: (1) workshop on state-of-the-art challenges in computational science and software, (2) CSC -run school, and (3) coding sessions with the aid of CSC facilities and expertise. The plan is to involve and contact a number of groups in Europe interested in topics where the usage of this methodology is essential and/or current code development / usage is actively going on.

High Performance Computing 2019 (HPC 2019)

The High-Performance Computing (HPC) 2019 event will cover topics such as HPC in software tools, big data analytics and advanced numerical methods, as well as the various types of algorithms associated with supercomputing. The conference is dedicated to the 150th anniversary of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences.

Euro-Par Conference 2019

Euro-Par is the prime European conference covering all aspects of parallel and  distributed processing, ranging from theory to practice, from small to the largest parallel and distributed systems and infrastructures, from fundamental computational problems to full-fledged applications, from architecture,  compiler, language and interface design and implementation, to tools, support infrastructures, and application performance aspects.

International HPC Summer School

Graduate students and postdoctoral scholars from institutions in Canada, Europe, Japan and the United States have been invited to apply for the 10th International HPC Summer School, to be held July 7-12, 2019 in Kobe, Japan, hosted by the RIKEN Center for Computational Science (R-CCS). The summer school will familiarize the best students in computational sciences with major state-of-the-art aspects of HPC for a variety of scientific disciplines, catalyze the formation of networks, provide advanced mentoring, facilitate international exchange and open up further career options.

Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE) Summer of HPC 2019

Summer of HPC is a PRACE programme that offers summer placements at HPC centres across Europe to late stage undergraduates and/or master students. Up to twenty top applicants from across Europe are selected to participate each year, and applications for the program usually open in January of each year. Participants will spend two months working on projects related to PRACE technical or industrial work.
