Shaping Europe’s Digital Future - HPC for Extreme Scale Scientific and Industrial Applications

Sofia Digital Forum 2018

Anfang
19.04.2018 09:00 Uhr
Ende
19.04.2018 17:45 Uhr
Veranstaltungsort
National Palace of Culture, Sofia, Bulgaria

Veranstalter: Bulgarische EU-Ratspräsidentschaft und die Europäische Kommission

Bei der Veranstaltung dreht sich alles um die digitale Zukunft Europas. Das High Performance Computing (HPC) schafft in Verbindung mit mathematischen Modellen und Algorithmen Lösungen, die wissenschaftliche Durchbrüche ermöglichen und von denen Wirtschaftsunternehmen durch verbesserte Wettbewerbsfähigkeit und Innovationskraft profitieren. Mit dem EuroHPC Joint Undertaking verfolgt Europa darüber hinaus die Entwicklung eines Superrechners der nächsten Generation, die weitere wissenschaftliche, wirtschaftliche und gesellschaftliche Entwicklungen vorantreiben wird.

Ein weiterer Schwerpunkt der Veranstaltung ist die zunehmende Bedeutung des High Perfomance Computing in den Neurowissenschaften und der Medizin. Forscher diskutieren die Rolle von Supercomputern in der personalisierten Medizin und bei der Erforschung des menschlichen Gehirns – eines der komplexesten Systeme überhaupt -- im europäischen Human Brain Project.

Agenda

  • Opening
    by Bulgarian high-level government representative, together with Mariya Gabriel, European Commissioner for Digital Economy and Society, and Prof. Ivan Dimov, Deputy Minister for Education and Science
  • HPC for extreme scale scientific applications
    Moderators: Prof. Stoyan Markov, NCSA, Bulgaria and Prof. Thomas Lippert, Jülich Supercomputing Centre, Germany
    The session aims at providing  examples of ground-breaking results that have been achieved by using supercomputers in various areas of scientific and industrial activity, including medicine, biology, geology, engineering and social sciences.
    Talks: Prof. Stoyan Markov and Thomas Lippert, Prof. Constantia Alexandrou (University of Cyprus and The Cyprus Institute, Cyprus), Prof. Joseph Kioseoglou (Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece)
  • HPC and Future Computing Paradigms - Panel discussion
    Moderator: Prof. Thomas Lippert, Jülich Supercomputing Centre, Germany
    The session aims at discussing emerging computing strategies in the next five to ten years such as exascale computing, quantum computing, neuromorphic computing; to discuss their possible competition and/or complementarities and synergies; and their concrete application perspectives and impact on science and economy; and to draw conclusions about the possible future emerging computing infrastructure landscape to build in Europe and beyond.
    Panellists: Prof. Heike Riel (IBM Research Frontiers Institute, Switzerland), Prof. Harry Buhrman (CWI, University of Amsterdam, QuSoft, The Netherlands), Prof. Kristel Michielsen (Forschungszentrum Jülich, Germany), Prof. Ilian Todorov (Science & Technology Facilities Council, United Kingdom), Dr. Jean-Marc Denis (ATOS-BULL, France)
  • The growing role of HPC in Neuroscience – the Human Brain Project FET Flagship
    Moderator: Prof. Katrin Amunts, Institute of Neuroscience and Medicine (INM-1), Forschungszentrum Jülich, Germany
    This session will show the coupling of scientific progress in brain research with advances in extreme-scale computing. Simulation and data analytics in neuroscience, but also brain medicine illustrate the successful application of HPC in this field.
    Talks: Prof. Jeannette Hellgren Kotaleski (KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden), Prof. Viktor Jirsa (Marseille University, France), Dr. Kristina Kapanova (NCSA, Bulgaria), Prof. Katrin Amunts (Forschungszentrum Jülich, Germany)
  • The Future of Personalised Health and Medicine - Panel discussion
    Moderator: Prof. Emrah Düzel, Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg, Germany
    The session aims at discussing the new concepts and tools needed in medicine to make full use of data generated by patient studies as well as ensuring this data is used in the most beneficial way for the individual patient.
    Panellists: Prof. Hilleke Hulshoff Pol (UMC Utrecht, The Netherlands), Prof. Kostadin Kostadinov (Advisor to the Minister of Education and Science, Bulgaria), Prof. Giulia Rossetti (RWTH Aachen University, Germany), Prof. Gitte Knudsen (Copenhagen University Hospital, Denmark), Prof. Patrice Boyer (University Paris 7, France)
  • Role of HPC in the South and Eastern Europe - Panel discussion
    Moderator: Dr. Thomas Skordas, Director, DG CONNECT, European Commission
    The aim of the session is to discuss concrete perspectives, challenges and collaborations of HPC development, including skills development, in Eastern and South European countries under EuroHPC, the European strategic initiative on High Performance Computing.
    Panellists: Prof. Svetozar Margenov (Director IICT - BAS, Bulgaria), Prof. Constantia Alexandrou (The Cyprus Institute, Cyprus), Dr. Vit Vondrak (VSB-Technical University of Ostrava, Czech Republic), Prof. Panayiotis Tsanakas (National Technical University of Athens, Greece), Prof. Zlatan Car (University of Rijeka, Croatia)
  • Closing Keynote speech by Dr. Thierry Breton, CEO Atos, France
  • Closing remarks by Mariya Gabriel, European Commissioner for Digital Economy and Society
