ETP4HPC booth at ISC
We have closed another quarter of fruitful work in our fast changing environment. Much effort has been put in the ‘HPC Vision’, a document that will define our priorities for the post-Horizon 2020 era. We are not developing these guidelines in isolation – we are working closely with HiPEAC (our partners in the Embedded Systems area), we have enlisted the help of world-class experts, and we have opened the process to all ETP4HPC members. An important step was a successful workshop to launch the creation of our Vision – at this 24 June event in Frankfurt we learnt about the global HPC and related trends from the most reputable experts. In the coming months, we will continue this scoping work together with the BDVA and AIOTI associations.
The ‘HPC Vision’ document will be ready in Q1 2019. It will also form the basis of our next Strategic Research Agenda (SRA), work on which will start in 2019. There will be further workshops and opportunities for involvement – we value your opinions and it is one of the missions of the Steering Board and the Office to encourage all members to participate. Please watch out for further communication on this topic and visit our website for updates.
One of the key challenges for us in the coming months is to position our organisation within the new EuroHPC Joint Undertaking. We have been working closely with the EC on this topic and we have created a Working Group to define our strategy. As part of this work, we are expected to deliver an extract of our SRA to help define the EuroHPC work programme – you will receive an update on this process very soon.
Please enjoy the summer and renew your energy – there is important work to be done in the remaining part of the year!
