16th Multiscale Modelling and Simulation Workshop, Faro, Portugal

Modelling and simulation of multiscale systems constitutes a grand challenge in computational science, and is widely applied in fields ranging from the physical sciences and engineering to the life science and the socio-economic domain. Most of the real-life systems encompass interactions within and between a wide range of spatio-temporal scales, and/or on many separate levels of organization. They require the development of sophisticated models and computational techniques to accurately simulate the diversity and complexity of multiscale problems, and to effectively capture the wide range of relevant phenomena within these simulations. Additionally, these multiscale models frequently need large scale computing capabilities as well as dedicated software and services that enable the exploitation of existing and evolving computational ecosystems.

This workshop, which is part of the International Conference on Computational Science aims to provide a forum for multiscale application modellers, framework developers and experts from the distributed infrastructure communities to identify and discuss challenges in, and possible solutions for, modelling and simulating multiscale systems, as well as their execution on advanced computational resources and their validation against experimental data.

24th International Conference on Conceptual Structures - ICCS 2019, Marburg, Germany

The International Conferences on Conceptual Structures focuses on the formal analysis and representation of conceptual knowledge, at the crossroads of artificial intelligence, human cognition, computational linguistics, and related areas of computer science and cognitive science. The ICCS conferences evolved from a series of seven annual workshops on conceptual graphs, starting with an informal gathering hosted by John F. Sowa in 1986. Recently, graph-based knowledge representation and reasoning (KRR) paradigms are getting more and more attention. With the rise of quasi-autonomous AI, graph-based representations provide a vehicle for making machine cognition explicit to its human users. The aim of the ICCS 2019 conference is to build upon its long standing expertise in graph-based KRR and focus on providing modelling, formal and application results of graph-based systems.

Fifth GPU Programming Hackathon - EUROHACK19, Lugano, Switzerland

General-purpose Graphics Processing Units (GPGPUs) potentially offer exceptionally high memory bandwidth and performance for a wide range of applications. The challenge in utilizing such accelerators has been the difficulty in programming them. Today, these devices can be programmed with the CUDA/C++ programming platform or with OpenACC Directives for Accelerators, which offer straightforward extensions to C++ and Fortran to address this programming hurdle. Alternative programming paradigms such as OpenCL or Kokkos can also be employed.

EuroHack provides a unique opportunity for current or prospective users groups of large hybrid CPU-GPU systems to either (1) port their (potentially) scalable application to GPU accelerators, or (2) optimize an existing GPU-enabled application, on a state-of-the-art GPU system. The goal is that the development teams leave at the end of the week with applications running on GPUs, or at least with a clear roadmap of how to get there.

International Conference on High-Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis - SC19, Denver, Colorado, USA

HPC touches lives everywhere - every day. Today, the work in HPC is more essential than ever, driven by an urgent need to provide computational solutions for the world's greatest challenges from precision medicine and agricultural technologies to autonomous vehicles in smart cities and renewable energy. The impact of HPC goes beyond traditional research boundaries to enhance our daily lives. Be part of the HPC revolution at SC19. The future is now.

"HPC is Now" is the theme of SC19. HPC isn't just a glimpse ahead into what will be achievable in the future. HPC touches, augments and improves lives everywhere today. Right now. Just look what HPC is doing in many fields: Precision farming and weather forecasting. Medicine and meteorology. Smartphones and ecommerce. HPC enhances and enables our fast-paced lives. Today, the scientists, engineers and researchers who built tools and applications on the world's fastest machines just a few years ago are seeing the tools they honed applied by others to solve the world's greatest challenges.

EU Conference on Modelling for Policy support: Experiences, challenges and the way ahead, Brussels, Belgium

The European Commission makes extensive use of models throughout the policy cycle. Models are used to assess the environmental, economic, and social impacts of policies. The Commission Competence Centre on Modelling (CC-MOD) promotes a responsible, coherent and transparent use of modelling to support the evidence base for policies in the EU, and pools the Commission's competencies and best practices in building and using models.

The Conference will bring together researchers and policy makers involved in modelling activities from the Commission, European and international institutions and agencies, Member States, Universities, research institutes, and consultancies. Its aim is to identify common challenges and solutions in the use of models to support policy making. Experiences, challenges and the way ahead will be discussed by sharing best practices to ensure high quality standards and adherence to the state-of-the-art.
