International Symposium on Grids and Clouds (ISGC) 2021, Taipei, Taiwan

The main theme of ISGC 2021 is "Challenges in High Performance Data Analytics: Combining Approaches in HPC, HTC, Big Data and AI".

While the research data are becoming a real asset nowadays, it is an information and knowledge gained through thorough analysis that makes them so valuable. To process vast amounts of data collected, novel high performance data analytics methods and tools are needed, combining classical simulation oriented approaches, Big Data processing and advanced AI methods. Such a combination is not straightforward and needs novel insights at all levels of the computing environment - from the network and hardware fabrics through the operating systems and middleware to the platforms and software, not forgetting the security - to support data oriented research. Challenging use cases that apply difficult scientific problems are necessary to properly drive the evolution and also to validate such high performance data analytics environments.

The goal of ISGC 2021 is to create a face-to-face venue where individual communities and national representatives can present and share their contributions to the global puzzle and contribute thus to the solution of global challenges.

Platform for Advanced Scientific Computing Conference - PASC21, Geneva, Switzerland

PASC21 is the seventh edition of the PASC Conference series, an international platform for the exchange of competences in scientific computing and computational science, with a strong focus on methods, tools, algorithms, application challenges, and novel techniques and usage of high performance computing.

The theme is "New Challenges, New Computing Paradigms". Computational science is crucially important across diverse research communities from traditional topics in physics and chemistry to new applications in life and social sciences. The drive to exascale computing, together with new computational paradigms in machine learning, artificial intelligence and big data present opportunities for science and society but also significant challenges for both traditional HPC and the new user communities.

This growing community requires increased computing power, new heterogeneous architecture paradigms, new software and new policies for resource access while benchmarks like High-Performance Linpack are becoming less and less representative of the computing ecosystems. Although new hardware solutions are emerging, computers become fatter, not faster, and exploiting the coming exascale systems remains a challenge for many traditional HPC applications.

PASC21 aims to open discussions on these new challenges, explore problems and propose solutions to address them and shape the future of scientific computing.
