ETP4HPC webinar: LUMI



11:00 to noon CEST


Breaking news: due to technical issues, we had to postpone this webinar initially programmed on 15 September. All registrations are transferred to the new date, and for those who cannot make it, the webinar will be recorded.


The EuroHPC Joint Undertaking has installed three leadership-class supercomputers. We will discuss one of these systems, LUMI, located in Kajaani, Finland. LUMI is currently the fastest supercomputer in Europe and in general one of the most powerful and advanced computing systems in the world.

Dr. Pekka Manninen will present the technical architecture of the LUMI infrastructure and its status, together with plans and ambitions for the near future. Then, an overview of the scientific showcases and achievements from the first months of LUMI will be presented. These include, for example, contributions to the Destination Earth initiative, work on large language models and breakthroughs from extreme-scale computing capabilities in many fields of computational science.




Dr. Pekka Manninen is the Director of Science and Technology at Advanced Computing Facility at CSC, the Finnish IT center for science. He has a long experience in supercomputing and supercomputing infrastructures and has been leading and involved in several pan-European e-infrastructure initiatives over the course of years. Most recently he has been leading the efforts related to the Europe's flagship supercomputer LUMI. He holds a Ph.D. in theoretical physics and is an Adjunct Professor at the University of Helsinki.
