SCFE2019: Supercomputing Frontiers Europe 2019

Centrum Konferencyjne Kopernik, Warsaw, Poland

Warsaw, Poland, March 11-14, 2019

Abstract registration deadline: January 31, 2019

Submission deadline: February 15, 2019

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. 

Keynote and invited speakers are:

	Leon Chua, University of Berkely, USA; Tentative title: Memristor - Rememberence of things past
	Paul Messina, Argonne National Laboratory, USA; Tentative topic: Exascale Supercomputing
	Rupak Biswas, NASA AMES Research Center, USA; Topic: Advanced Computing at NASA
	Taisuke Boku, University of Tsukuba, Japan; What’s the next step of accelerated supercomputing?
	Hamish Carr, University of Leeds, UK; Why Topology is Necessary at Exascale - And Why it’s Not Easy

	Evangelos Eleftheriou, IBM Research Laboratory, Zurich, Switzerland; “In-Memory Computing”: Accelerating AI Applications
	Anne C. Elster, NUST, Norway; Supercomputing and AI: Impact and Opportunities
	Torsten Hoefler, ETH, Zurich, Switzerland; Tentative topic: Extreme Scale Graphs
	Eliu Huerta, National Center for Supercomputing Applications, USA; Driving innovation at the interface of high performance computing and artificial intelligence for Multi-Messenger Astrophysics
	Tomasz Kosciolek, University of California San Diego, USA; Computational Challanges in understanding the structure and function of the microbiome
	Yoshinori Kimura, Infinite Curation, Japan; Sequence Similarity Search for Large-scale Metagenomic Data using Liquid Immersion Cooling Supercomputer

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.

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.
