EXDCI workshop in Rome, September 29 and 30


Following ETP4HPC General Assembly, September 29th in Rome, ETP4HPC and PRACE joined forces at EXDCI* HPC Workshop in Rome.

This first Workshop brought together the organisations representing the three pillars of European HPC: PRACE (infrastructure), as well as the FETHPC projects (technology) the Centres of Excellence (CoE – applications). The objective of the event was to begin the process of synchronising the activities of the entire European Eco-system by presenting the work of all the projects and organisations involved. EXDCI will continue to facilitate this coordination process, a process in which ETP4HPC will participate.

* About EXDCI “Extreme Data and Computing Initiative”

EXDCI’s objective is to coordinate the development and implementation of a common strategy for the European HPC Ecosystem. The two most significant HPC bodies in Europe, PRACE and ETP4HPC, join their expertise in this 30-month project with a budget of € 2.5 million, starting from September 2015. EXDCI aims to support the road-mapping, strategy-making and performance-monitoring activities of the ecosystem, i.e.:

  • Producing and aligning roadmaps for HPC Technology and HPC Applications
  • Measuring the implementation of the European HPC Strategy
  • Building and maintaining relations with other international HPC activities and regions
  • Supporting the generation of young talent as a crucial element of the development of European HPC

EXDCI will complement the Horizon 2020 calls and projects in the achievement of a globally competitive HPC Ecosystem in Europe. Following the vision of the European Commission in HPC, this ecosystem is based on three pillars: HPC Technology Provision, HPC Infrastructure and HPC Application Resources.
