Workshop on Machine Learning for Weather and Climate Modelling

Machine Learning is recognised as a potentially disruptive technology, which may have a large positive impact on both the computational and data management activities associated with Earth System Models.

It is organized by ECMWF and the University of Oxford and co-funded by the ESiWACE2 project.

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.

2nd ExaHyPE User Workshop

Researchers interested in solving hyperbolic PDE systems using high order numerical schemes (in particular discontinuous Galerkin) are cordially invited to the 2nd ExaHyPE User Workshop.

ExaHyPE is an open source simulation engine to solve systems of hyperbolic equation systems. Users can try out the engine while some developers are around, i.e. they start the week with a problem given as PDE in mind and go home with a working first prototype built on top of ExaHyPE.

A limited number of travel grants to European partners can be provided.

ChEESE @27th IUGG General Assembly

The 27th IUGG General Assembly will be held July 8-18, 2019 at the Palais des Congrès in Montréal, Québec, Canada. This is a special opportunity for participants from Canada and from around the world to come together and share their science and culture. 2019 marks the 100th anniversary of IUGG; we will look back on the accomplishments of the previous century of Earth and space science research, and forward to the next century of scientific advancement.

BSC researchers Arnau Folch and  Marisol Monterrubio Velasco will be presenting ChEESE at the 27th IUGG General Assembly, which takes place in Montreal, Canada from July 8-18, 2019.

Arnau will give several talks throughout the conference.  He will present “FALLD-8.0: A computational model for atmospheric transport and deposition of tephra, dust, SO2 and radionuclides” at 5:00 pm – 5:15 pm on July 13. This is part of the session on Experimental and numerical modeling of volcanic processes and their impacts.

He will give another talk called “Reducing georisk trough Exascale computing in Solid Earth” on July 14. It is part of a session on Georisk Reduction: Science, Resources, and Governmental Action which is from 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm.

Finally, he will have another talk titled “Data Assimilation of Volcanic Ash Retrievals Using the New Generation of Geostationary Satellite Sensors” at 5:30 pm – 5:45 pm on July 14 as well.

Meanwhile, Marisol´s talk, titled “Urgent Seismic Computing: Earthquake 3D Simulations for Disaster Resilience”, is part of the Advances in Seismic Hazard and Risk Assessment session. It will take place at 11:15 am – 11:30 am on July 17.

Extended software development workshop in quantum dynamics

Quantum molecular dynamics simulations are pivotal to understanding and predicting the microscopic details of molecules, and strongly rely on a combined theoretical and computational effort. One of the core actions of E-CAM has been to promote systematic developments of software, provide a repository to host and share code, and foster collaborations on adding functionalities and improving the performance of common software scaffolds for wavepacket (Quantics) and trajectory-based (PaPIM) packages. Collaborations on developments on other codes have also been initiated. This workshop aims at continuing and extending these activities based on input from the community.

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.

European Research and Innovation Days

European Research and Innovation Days include the following events:

The Policy Conference brings together high-level policy-makers, leaders from industry, finance, academia and the entrepreneurial community to debate and shape the future research and innovation landscape. It covers vital areas of science, engineering, medicine, and wider social and environmental concerns.

The Innovative Europe Hub is a unique meeting and matchmaking space for innovators, investors, entrepreneurs and the whole range of services, businesses, civil society organisations, agencies and intermediaries that make European science technology so dynamic.

Free and open to everybody, ‘Science is Wonderful!’ brings the world of science to the public. Fighting cancer, slowing down global warming, preventing hunger and drought, facilitating human life in space – it’s all part of the variety of activities schools, families and young people can discover at the event.

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.

High Throughput Computing Hackathon

The workshop will be 3.5 days long consisting of 1.5 days with three different Python libraries related to Dask:
The last library is something that has been developed since last year by E-CAM. It allows the user to create tasks that call out to MPI programs, and easily configure the tasks to run on different types of resources (CPU/GPU/KNL).
The final 2 days will be a hackathon where you can work on your own use case with technical assistance.
