Prof. Mario Kovač presented MANGO project at HPC Summit Week
European High Performance Computing Summit Week was held from 9 to 12 May in Prague, Czech Republic. The four-day summit was comprised from a number of HPC events: an EXDCI Workshop , PRACEdays16 , the workshop titled “EuroLab4HPC: Why is European HPC running on US hardware?” and the ETP4HPC Extreme-Scale Demonstrators Workshop as well as other private meetings organized during the week.
At this first edition of European HPC Summit week coordinated by European eXtreme Data and Computing Initiative, EXDCI, Prof. Mario Kovač presented main goals of MANGO project. The presentation was part of the EXDCi workshop. This workshop was the continuation of the EXDCI workshop organized in Rome. The aim was to provide an update on the status of the ongoing FETHPC projects, the European Exascale projects and the CoEs in order to better understand the development of the HPC ecosystem for all the participants and stakeholders.
The European eXtreme Data and Computing Initiative (EXDCI) objective is to coordinate the development and implementation of a common strategy for the European HPC Ecosystem. EXDCI aims to support the road-mapping, strategy-making and performance-monitoring activities of the ecosystem, i.e.:
- Producing and aligning roadmaps for HPC Technology and HPC Applications
- Measuring the implementation of the European HPC strategy
- Building and maintaining relations with other international HPC activities and regions
- Supporting the generation of young talent as a crucial element of the development of European HPC
Sergi Girona, EXDCI coordinator, about first edition of the European HPC Summit week:
"The first edition of the European HPC Summit week includes HPC related conferences and workshops. Attendees will be able to network with representatives of a range of HPC projects and be informed about the latest activities in HPC. EXDCI is planning for additional HPC related conferences and communities to be hosted by European HPC Summit week 2017."
