Supercomputing Frontiers Europe 2018 

You are cordially invited to contribute as an author or a participant in “Supercomputing Frontiers Europe 2018” in Warsaw, Poland, on March 12-15.

Supercomputer Frontiers Europe 2018 <https://supercomputingfrontiers.eu/2018/> will be the fourth edition of the annual conference which run in Singapore in 2015-2017. The 2018 edition of the conference will be organized for the first time in Warsaw, Poland. The conference provides a platform for the thought leaders from both academia and industry to interact and discuss the visionary ideas, the most important global trends and substantial innovations in supercomputing. The SCF 2017 <http://supercomputingfrontiers.com/2017/> conference took place in March last year and showcased a successful scientific program with renown plenary keynote speakers like Gordon Bell, Alessandro Curioni, Thom H. Dunning, Jr., and Haohuan Fu. The 2016 edition <http://supercomputingfrontiers.com/2016/> keynote speakres included Bronis de Supinski, Horst Simon, Aluru Srinivas, and Dame Susan Greenfield and the inaugural 2015 edition <http://supercomputingfrontiers.com/2015/> keynote speakres included yourself, Satoshi Matsuoka, Robert Harrison, Rick Stevens, Jack Dongarra, Alan Gara and John Gustafson.

The list of keynote and invited speakers this year include:

Selected contributed papers from the previous editions of SCF were published in three special editions of Supercomputing Frontiers and Innovations, Vol 2, No 3 (2015) <http://superfri.org/superfri/issue/view/7/showToc>; Vol 3, No 2 (2016) <http://superfri.org/superfri/issue/view/10/showToc>; Vol 4, No 2 (2017). <http://superfri.org/superfri/issue/view/14/showToc>
Some of the themes being considered for Supercomputing Frontiers 2018 are:

Supercomputing applications in domains of critical impact in scientific, economic and human terms, and especially those requiring computing resources approaching Exascale;
Cryptography and HPC: classical, quantum and post-quantum; blockchain, DLT etc.;
Big data science merging with supercomputing with associated issues of I/O, high bandwidth networking, storage, workflows, real time processing, graph methods;
Architectural complexity of Exascale systems with special focus on new and special purpose processor architectures, supercomputing interconnects, interconnect topologies and routing;
Cosmology, Astrophysics – Big Data and Big Iron;
Genomics, Proteomics, Metabolomics and Connectomics;
Any other topic that pushes the boundaries of supercomputing to exascale and beyond.
Additionally, on the 15th March there will be several half-day and full day workshops: 

1. D-Wave Systems: An inTroduction to Programming a quantum computer
2. Introduction to Numerical Computing with Julia (Julia Computing & SGH)
3. Advanced scientific visualization with VisNow platform (ICM)
4. High Performance Computing and Big Data analitics with PCJ and Java (ICM)
5. New ARM hardware (Atos-Bull)
6. Dataflow programming (Maxeler)
and several others.
