The European Network on High Performance and Embedded Architecture and Compilation (HiPEAC) conference is the premier European forum for experts in computer architecture, programming models, compilers and operating systems for embedded and general-purpose systems. The HiPEAC 2020 conference will take place in Bologna, Italy. Associated workshops, tutorials, special sessions, several large poster session and an industrial exhibition will run in parallel with the conference.
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.
A GPU hackathon is a 5-day coding event in which teams of developers port their applications to run on GPUs, or optimize their applications that already run on GPUs. Each team consists of three or more developers who are intimately familiar with (some part of) their application, and they work alongside two mentors with GPU programming expertise. The mentors come from universities, national laboratories, supercomputing centers, government institutions, and vendors. The Swiss National Supercomputing Centre is pleased to announce that the fifth GPU-programming EuroHack will be held from September 30 to October 04, 2019 at the Hotel De La Paix in Lugano, located in the Italian area of Switzerland.
The conference will address all aspects of the rapidly burgeoning domain of computational biomedicine, from genome through organ to whole human and population levels, embracing data driven, mechanistic modelling and simulation, machine learning and combinations thereof. It is is organised by the Centre of Excellence (CoE) in Computational Biomedicine (CompBioMed), aimed at nurturing and promoting the uptake and exploitation of high performance computing within the biomedical modelling community (www.compbiomed.eu).
This tutorial focuses on training the participants in using our all-electron FLAPW DFT code FLEUR (www.flapw.de) and associated codes like Spex-FLEUR, a code for many-body perturbation theory, and G-FLEUR, an embedding code. In extension to similar previous tutorials it also addresses the usage of FLEUR within the AiiDA infrastructure to build automatic work-flows applicable to materials screening applications.
The School is supported partly by MaX CoE.
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 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.
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.
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.
The summer school will include lectures and hands-on sessions on the following topics:
Molecular Dynamics simulations
Free energy calculations
Advanced sampling methods (Metadynamics)
During the hands-on computer practicals participants will work on a use case integrating the various topics above making use, among others, of the BioExcel flagship software (GROMACS, HADDOCK, PMX).
