Our Supercomputing 17 Birds-of-a-Feather session will take place on 14th Nov 2017 (Tue) from 515pm to 7pm in Room 501-502

BoF Title: European Exascale Projects and Their Global Contributions

Europe will present a holistic view of its HPC development and showcase its selected projects that contribute to the global exascale R&D effort.

The European HPC Technology and Application programme covers the entire HPC system stack and application expertise; including system prototypes (see for a full description).

We will summarise our ambitions and the contribution of our projects, present selected technology (Mont-Blanc, SAGE) and application projects (BioExcel) and discuss our role in the global HPC effort. The European EXDCI ( booth, publications (European HPC Handbook) and the ETP4HPC website will facilitate networking before and after the BoF.

The European HPC Handbook that is to be distributed at the event is available here.
