Supercomputer Frontiers Europe 2019 (SCFE2019) will be the fifth edition of the annual conference which run in Singapore in 2015-2017 and moved to Poland in 2018 as Supercomputer Frontiers Europe 2018.  The 2019 edition of the conference will take place on 11-14 March 2019, for the second time in Warsaw, Poland.

SCFE is 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. Each year we focus on somewhat different topics, but we always focus on ideas that are most innovative, ingeneous and have potential to change the course of supercomputing. We also highlight research domains that might present the greatest potential of becoming the leading applications of supercomputers in the future. Each year several most advanced technology start-up are also present. This year (tentatively) the dominant topics will be connectome, neuromorphic computing, understanding of brain (computationally), microbiome and quantum computing.

The previous conferences showcased a successful scientific program with outstanding speakers including Whitfiedl Diffie (Cryptography), Dimitri Kusnezov (Personalised medicine and exascale computing), Karlhienz Meier (Neuromorphic computing), Gordon Bell (History of G. Bell Prizes), Alessandro Curioni (Cognitive Computing), Thom H. Dunning (Supercomputing), Jr., Haohuan Fu (TaihuLight), John Gustafson (Unums and Posits), Baroness Susan Greenfield (Consciousness and Computers), Thomas Sterling (Simultac Fonton), Srinivas Aluru, Horst Simon, Bronis de Supinski, Jack Dongarra, Satoshi Matsuoka, Al Gara, Rick Stevens, Robert Harrisoon and Scott Klasky.

Contributed papers are solicited in these themes of Supercomputing Frontiers Europe 2019:

Supercomputing applications in domains of critical impact in scientific, economic and human terms, and especially those requiring computing resources approaching Exascale;
Computing at the Edge with an emphasis on high bandwidth networking, distributed workflows, and streaming data;
Heterogeneous computer fabrics for processors, memory systems, and interconnection networks and their associated programming environments (languages, compilers, libraries, and runtime systems)
New processor architectures, optical interconnects, associative memories, interconnect topologies and routing, and interplay of interconnect topologies with algorithmic communication patterns; 
Genomics, -omics of all kinds and Systems Biology; 
Brain simulations, Neuromorphic computing, Connectome;
Knowledge Graphs, graph computations, topology, space filling curves; and
Any other topic that pushes the boundaries of computational science and supercomputing to exascale and beyond.
The conference website is at: https://supercomputingfrontiers.eu/2019/ <https://supercomputingfrontiers.eu/2019/>
Selected papers from earlier editions of the conference were published in special issues of Supercomputing Frontiers and Innovations, Vol 2, No 3 (2015), Vol 3, No 2 (2016), Vol 4, No 2 (2017) and Vol 5, No 2 and 3 (2018). The selected papers of SCFE 2019 will be published in the same Scopus ranked Open Access journal.
