Our traditional Birds-of-a-Feather session at the Supercomputing Conference in Dallas took place on  14 November. As usual it was organised by ETP4HPC on behalf of EXDCI2.

Attendees received their copy of the newly published Handbook 2018 of  European High-Performance Computing (also available on-line).

In this session entitled "Consolidating the European Exascale Effort",  Europe presented the results of its Exascale programme to date (covering the entire HPC system stack and application expertise), the ambitions of the new round of basic technology, application, co-design (DEEP-EST/EuroExa), prototype and processor design (EPI) projects, its post-Exascale plans, collaboration with Big Data, IoT and other areas, and a selection of best-performing HPC technology SMEs (Iceotope and Megware), emphasising Europe’s global contributions.

EuroHPC, an initiative of EC and Member States, will provide the resources and mechanisms needed to integrate these efforts and build world-class Exascale machines.

A summary of European HPC and its projects (‘European HPC 2018’) is available at www.etp4hpc.eu/euexascale.
