     ETP4HPC NEWSLETTER
    JULY - SEPTEMBER 2016

 
Dear ETP4HPC Partners,

In the third quarter of 2016, our organisation focused on developing the concept of the Extreme-scale Demonstrators (EsDs). These EsDs form part of our Strategic Research Agenda (SRA) and are foreseen as prototypes for future European Exa-scale systems, with the objective to verify the validity and usability of European HPC technology, which is funded under FP7 and H2020.

Further relationships with the Big Data Value Association (BDVA) - and Big Data PPP - were developed during the EXDCI annual meeting, which provided an ideal occasion for supporting these actions. We held two working sessions (21-22 Sept 2016, Barcelona) in order to receive feedback concept from European HPC system integrators and The Big Data Value Association (BDVA) on the current state of the EsDs.

The meeting was also an opportunity to bring together scientific cases and technology roadmaps, jointly elaborating on how to relate application specifications to HPC architectures, and to prepare the first set of global recommendations for European HPC technology development (i.e. the provision of supercomputing systems). These actions also contributed to the consolidation of the input delivered to the EC in preparation of the Work Programme 2018-2020, which will represent the next round of H2020 funding.
