HPC Advisory Council Announces 3rd Annual Spain Supercomputing Conference

The HPC Advisory Council, a leading organization for high-performance computing research, outreach and education, today announced that the HPC Advisory Council, in conjunction with the Barcelona Supercomputing Center, will host the 3rd Annual HPC Advisory Council Spain Conference 2014 at the University of Cantabria, Cantabria, Spain, on September 24th, 2014. Speaker and sponsorship opportunities are available. Please make sure to register early to ensure your seat at the conference. The conference will focus on the following subjects:

  • High-performance computing systems
  • High-speed networks
  • High-performance and parallel I/O
  • Communication libraries: MPI, SHMEM, PGAS
  • Advanced topics / technologies / development / the road to Exascale
  • GPU computing, CUDA, OpenCL
  • New HPC initiatives and programs

In conjunction with the HPC Advisory Council Spain Conference, the Spanish Supercomputing network will be celebrating its 8th RES Users Meeting the previous day on September 23rd.

“The HPC Advisory Council is pleased to collaborate again with the Barcelona Supercomputing Center for this upcoming High-Performance Computing education and outreach conference in Spain,” said Gilad Shainer, chairman of the HPC Advisory Council. “This is an excellent educational opportunity for European-based, HPC and data center IT professionals.”

“We place a strong importance on HPC education to enable users and IT administrators to better receive the enormous potential of their supercomputing systems for their development of science and technology,” Sergi Girona, Operations Manager and RES coordinator at the Barcelona Supercomputing Center. “BSC has a long tradition of training on parallel systems including programming models, tools, parallelization, etc., and we look forward to our continued collaboration with the HPC Advisory Council to further HPC education.”

Attendance to the conference is free. Registration for the conference is required and is now open. The one-day conference will include coffee breaks and lunch courtesy of the HPC Advisory Council. For more information please visit the workshop website or contact the council at [email protected].

About the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC-CNS)

The Barcelona Supercomputing Center is the national supercomputing centre in Spain. The BSC-CNS specialises in high performance computing (HPC) and its mission is two-fold: to provide infrastructure and supercomputing services to European scientists, and to generate knowledge and technology to transfer to business and society.

It is a Severo Ochoa Center of Excellence and a first level member of the European research infrastructure PRACE (Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe). The BSC-CNS also manages the Spanish Supercomputing Network (RES).

About the Spanish Supercomputing Network (RES)

The Spanish Supercomputing network (Red Española de Supercomputing - RES) is a distributed supercomputer structure, the aim of which is to meet the needs of research groups in Spain. Nodes on this network are located at the BSC-CNS in Barcelona, the Polytechnic University of Madrid (Madrid Supercomputing and Visualisation Centre), the Canary Islands Astrophysics Institute (IAC), the Canary Islands Institute of Technology (ITC) and the Universities of Cantabria, Malaga, Valencia and Saragossa. The RES’s technical management is coordinated by the BSC-CNS and answers the scientific community’s growing need for supercomputing.

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.
In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed cloud as a ‘better data center’ and how it adds new capacity (faster) and improves application availability (redundancy). The cloud is a ‘Dynamic Tool for Dynamic Apps’ and resource allocation is an integral part of your application architecture, so use only the resources you need and allocate /de-allocate resources on the fly.
As data explodes in quantity, importance and from new sources, the need for managing and protecting data residing across physical, virtual, and cloud environments grow with it.
