Prof. Mateo Valero attended the 22nd IEEE International Conference on HPC and Communications (HPCC-2020) and gave a keynote titled “The future of HPC will be Open”.
Mateo Valero and John Davis from BSC participated in the Russian SC Days, where prof. Valero presented a talk titled “Designing and Building Supercomputers @ BSC”.
The Spanish Supercomputing Network (RES) organizes every year a users meeting to inform about RES resources and procedures. This event aims to be a discussion forum among RES users, technical staff, the access committee and the users’ committee. Barcelona Supercomputing Center Director, Mateo Valero, attended the event and updated the public about MareNostrum 5 supercomputer and EPI efforts.
EPI consortium participated in EuroHPC Summit week with several activities:
Co-design workshop, EuroHPC: Co‐designing with the European Processor Initiative,
Upstream technologies panel,
and a presentation:
Pilots and system-level co-design: The BSC vision.
Industry Strategy Symposium, organized by SEMI, took place in Milano, Italy. EPI’s Mateo Valero, BSC, offered a keynote titled “BSC Roadmap for HPC in Europe”, also introducing EPI roadmap and direction.
This presentation at a major semiconductor industry event gave background on the race towards exascale and where Europe needs to be stronger. It explains the evolution of Arm-based technologies at BSC and in European projects before turning to open hardware. It then goes on to explore the background to EuroHPC and the European HPC roadmap, followed by an introduction to EPI and the EPI roadmap.
At the Going Digital conference, a part of MW Congress in Barcelona, Mateo Valero gave a presentation to industry representatives and gave a brief overview of the history of computing and then explained the need for European technological sovereignty. It also explained the background to EuroHPC before discussing what EPI would deliver (high-performance processor, high-performance accelerator, platform for autonomous cars).
EPI’s Mateo Valero visited Centro de Investigación en Computación del IPN, Instituto Politécnico Nacional in Ciudad de Mexico, and gave an invited talk titled “HPC Perspectives and Challenges for Europe”.
ICT 2018 took place in Vienna on 4-6 December 2018. This research and innovation event attracted several thousand visitors and focussed on the European Union’s priorities in the digital transformation of society and industry. EPI’s Mateo Valero presented HPC Perspectives and Challenges for Europe, at the very official beginning of EPI project.
