Supercomputing Frontiers Europe 2019

14th July, 2021

On July 19th, Supercomputing Frontiers Europe 2021 – the 7th edition of the international conference

On July 19th, Supercomputing Frontiers Europe 2021 – the 7th edition of the international conference will not only break geographical barriers with segments like ‘Focus on India’ and ‘Focus on Africa’, but also cross the frontier of merging Cloud and HPC.

 

 

The Interdisciplinary Center for Mathematical and Computational Modeling (ICM), University of Warsaw invites all HPC (High Performance Computing) enthusiasts to participate in the 7th edition of Supercomputing Frontiers Europe 2021 [19-23 July].

Over 1000 people from 67 countries around the world participated in the previous SCFE conference. Since 2018, the organiser of the European edition of Supercomputing Frontiers is the Interdisciplinary Center for Mathematical and Computational Modeling (ICM) of the University of Warsaw. In 2015-2017, the event took place in Singapore, from where it was moved to Warsaw by Dr. Marek Michalewicz, then managing director of A * STAR Computational Resource Center (A * CRC), currently Director of ICM, University of Warsaw.
