ICM University of Warsaw is back with Virtual ICM Seminars! The first meeting after summer break will feature Tomasz Malkiewicz from CSC- IT Center for Science Ltd and Nordic e-Infrastructure Collaboration (NeIC). Seminar will talk about the “precursor to exascale” supercomputer- LUMI.


“LUMI will be one of the world’s fastest computer systems, having theoretical computing power of more than 550 petaflops which means 550 quintillion calculations per second. LUMI will also be one of the world’s leading platforms for artificial intelligence.” []

Tomasz Malkiewicz during his presentation will focus on LUMI infrastructure, its great value and potential for the research community. On account of EuroHPC JU initiative and the exceptional idea of  creating “precursor to exascale” supercomputers in Europe, consortium of 10 countries was created (Finland, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Iceland, Norway, Poland, Sweden, and Switzerland) to share their experience and the know-how to host one of the most powerful and advanced computing systems on the planet at the time of its installation.

LUMI facts:

  • computing power of 1.5 million modern laptops;
  • weights 150 ooo kg;
  • approx. the size of volleyball court;
  • uses 100% hydropowered energy.

It’s going to be an engaging seminar where the audience will learn how the Nordic project was executed, from a business case to benefits monitoring after its completion.


Don’t wait and grab your FREE ticket to #VirtualICMSeminar, this Tuesday at 4am CEST!


Meet Tomasz Malkiewicz, his Alma Mater is University of Warsaw, where he got his Master Engineer degree in Physics. Subsequently, he moved to Finland to pursue his Ph.D. in Physics from University of Jyväskylä. In 2011, Tomasz started working at CSC – IT Center for Science Ltd., Espoo, Finland and currently is an Executive Manager at Nordic e-Infrastructure Collaboration (NeIC).
