HPC and Big Data Convergence for Future Extreme Scale Intelligent Applications


The objective of this event is to bring together the research communities in high-performance computing (HPC), mass data processing (big data) and artificial intelligence, subjects that are highly dependent on each other.

Organizer(s): Serge G. Petiton (University of Lille. Chair), Takayuki Aoki (Tokyo Institute of Technology), Hans-Joachim Bungartz (Technische Universität München), Michel Dayde (CNRS, Toulouse), Nahid Emad (University Paris-Saclay, Université de Versailles Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines), Wolfgang E. Nagel (Technische Universität, Dresden), Mitsuhisa Sato (RIKEN, Kobe)

The first two editions of this trilateral dialogue were part of the SPPEXA “Software for Exascale Computing” research program, funded by research agencies in the three countries. Once this programme was completed, the positive results it brought to light and the relevance of cooperation between France, Japan and Germany on this subject prompted the experts from these 3 countries to continue the dialogue.

This common will is reflected in this event, which will take place over 3 days in Tokyo. After a first day where leading experts from the three countries will unveil their respective advances in high-performance computing in plenary, the second day will be devoted to thematic sessions on the convergence of the different domains (HPC, Big Data and AI). Finally, the third day will consist of parallel working sessions in small groups, encouraging discussion in order to identify the orientations to be given to cooperation between our countries.

Participation in the event is free of charge but registration is mandatory. Registration will open soon.
