SRA 3 Working Group Final Review Meeting, July 10, 2017, Zurich


This closed meeting took place at IBM, Zurich, where SRA working group leaders met to make a final review of the 3rd edition of the Strategic Research Agenda (SRA), the European HPC Technology roadmap.

 Programme of events related to the SRA 3 preparation:

  • 20th March 2017: Kick-off meeting at IBM IOT center in Munich  (SRA –workgroup leads, application owners, CoE, HiPEAC, BDVA, EuroLAB-4-HPC)
  • 3-21 April  2107 - SRA 3 'Popular' input - all SRA 3 Contributors (i.e. the ETP4HPC members listed in SRA 3 Working Groups) are requested to submit their bottom-up contributions. The input obtained will be reviewed by the relevant SRA 3 Working Groups. Please contact the Office for the details of this process.
  • 18th May 2017:  Extreme-scale Demonstrators Round-table - during the European HPC Summit Week (involving: FETHPC projects (who will present their potential input into the EsD projects), CoE, HPC centers, system integrators, technology providers)    
  • 19th May 2017: 9-11am: SRA 3 Working Group Leaders Workshop (during the European HPC Summit Week) - Developing SRA Strategic Analysis and High-Level Technical Analysis. The objective is to: 1/ complete an analysis of main HPC technology trends and 2/perform a SWOT analysis on the European HPC Technology Value Chain.
  • 22nd June 2017: Industrial Use of Extreme-scale Demonstrators - a workshop with an objective to determine how companies (users of HPC) can benefit from the EsD projects and what they expect off future machines.
  • 4th Jul 2017 - Bologna - within an EXDCI Technical Workshop - a common ETP4HPC/EsD - BDVA Workshop
  • May-July: writing, interlock with workgroups
  • 10th July 2017 @ IBM Zurich - Final SRA Working Group Leaders Workshop (all day - reviewing the entire document)
  • July: integration, tuning, review
  • 31st July 2017: completion target
  • 30th September 2017: release and distribution after WP17 call closure

This is a roadmap for the achievement of exascale capabilities by the European High-Performance Computing (HPC) ecosystem. The milestones set in the SRA are used to define the contents of the HPC Technology R&D Work Programmes managed by the European Commission. ETP4HPC maintains the SRA in order to feed recommendations into the EC HPC Work Programmes and Calls for Proposals and it is our key deliverable.
