ETP4HPC NEWSLETTER
January - March 2017



Dear ETP4HPC Partners,

The first quarter of 2017 was quite eventful for our HPC community. It culminated on 23rd March, with the signature of the EuroHPC agreement in Rome. All European stakeholders, including ETP4HPC, attended the launch of EuroHPC, an initiative which will create an integrated world-class HPC infrastructure in Europe.

In the first quarter of 2017, our organisation focused on the consolidation of the input to the EC Work Programme 2018-2020 in the area of HPC Technology and Applications. We delivered a draft of this Programme to the EC in January and we are continuing the discussion on the exact shape of this last part of Horizon 2020.

As an important milestone in the life of our organisation, we began work on our next Strategic Research Agenda 2017 (SRA 3), which is our main deliverable. We organised a kick-off meeting in Munich on the 20th of March, where working group leaders and selected HPC eco-system and other stakeholders participated. We are now inviting our members to partake in, through the working groups, the preparation of SRA 3.

We were also involved in many events since the beginning of January, with participation in: ARM: On the road to HPC, Mont-Blanc (FP7) project event at BSC, Barcelona; 1st European Stakeholder Forum on Digitising European Industry in Essen, the 64th HPC User Forum which took place at HLRS/University of Stuttgart; The Big Data and Extreme-Scale Computing (BDEC) held their 5th closed workshop in Wuxi, China; Study visit to Brussels on Big Data for Transformation of the Industry in Brussels, and, 39th ORAP Forum at CNRS, Paris.
 
We held close contact with our members during our 7th General Assembly in Munich in March. This event was an opportunity for receiving an update from the EC on Europe’s strategy in the area of HPC. On this occasion, we also launched our new visual identity.
 
To conclude: a lot of work is ahead of us in the remaining part of 2017. We count on the support of our members and we hope to deliver solid results through the structure of our Association.
