CECAM Webinars - The importance of being H.P.C. Earnest

Jun 18, 2020, 15:00 until Jul 16, 2020, 17:00, Online

CECAM organizes a new series of webinars exploring the relevance of HPC as an enabler of leading-edge simulation and modeling. Entitled "The importance of being H.P.C. Earnest",  the series will focus on the science made possible by combining state-of-the-art methods with optimal exploitation of supercomputing resources.

The power of simulation and modeling is intimately related to the available computational resources, to the community’s awareness of these resources, and to its proficiency in their optimal exploitation. The relevance and impact of High Performance Computing (HPC) can be quite different depending on the specific area, but we are all confronted with the relationship between new methods and algorithms and their implementation in proficient codes. We are also increasingly solicited, by technological developments and political choices, to consider in our research aspects related to scalability, portability and optimal deployment of software on a rapidly evolving ecosystem of hardware architectures.

The seminars are held as follows:

Thursday June 18 

Nicola Marzari (EPFL), Claudia Filippi (University of Twente),  Anthony Scemama (University of Toulouse III), Giulia Galli (University of Chicago & Argonne National Laboratory).

Thursday June 25 15:00-17:00 (CEST) and broadcasted live on the CECAM Youtube Channel at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W3t6A_sF558&feature=youtu.be

Erik Lindahl (Stockholm University), Jesus Labarta (Barcelona Supercomputing Center), Paul Kent (Oak Ridge National Laboratory) 

Thursday July 2

Cecilia Clementi (MolSSI), Ignacio Pagonabarraga (CECAM), Peter Coveney (University College London) 

Thursday July 9

Edouard Audit (CEA), Elisa Molinari (University of Modena), Gianluca Palermo (Politecnico di Milano) 

Thursday July 16

Steven G. Louie (University of Berkeley), Claudia Draxl (Humboldt University Berlin)

If you have a YouTube or Google account, you will be able to ask questions during the talks using a chat. You can also send your questions via email to director@cecam.org. A moderator will relay as many of these questions as possible to the speakers.
