Welcome to Supercomputing Frontiers 2015!

Supercomputing Frontiers 2015 is Singapore’s inaugural conference on trends and innovations in the world of high performance computing.

It will be held on March 17 – 20, 2015 at Biopolis’ Matrix Building in Singapore.

Organised by A*STAR Computational Resource Centre, Supercomputing Frontiers 2015 will explore global trends and innovations in high performance computing in convolution of the following important areas:

  • Supercomputing applications in domains of critical impact in economic and human terms, and especially those requiring computer resources approaching Exascale;
  • Big Data science merging with Supercomputing with associated issues of I/O, high bandwidth networking, storage, workflows and real
    time processing;
  • Architectural complexity of Exascale systems with special focus on supercomputing interconnects, interconnect topologies and routing, and interplay of interconnect topologies with algorithmic communication patterns for both numerically intensive computations and Big Data; and
  • Any other topics that push the boundaries of Supercomputing to Exascale and beyond.


  • All-day exclusive tour of A*STAR, NTU & NUS research labs on Monday, March 16, 2015 (reservation is essential)
  • Workshop & Tutorials on Friday, March 20, 2015:
    • Monte Carlo Methods & High-Performance Computing by Michael Mascagni
    • Micron’s Automata Processor: A Massively Parallel Computing Solution
