ACM HPDC 2020 – 29th International Symposium on High-Performance Parallel and Distributed Computing

Virtual Conference via Zoom, June 23-26, 2020

The ACM International Symposium on High-Performance Parallel and Distributed Computing (HPDC) is the premier annual conference for presenting the latest research on the design, implementation, evaluation, and the use of parallel and distributed systems for high-end computing. Due to COVID-19, the 29th installment of HPDC will take the form of a virtual conference with a live synchronous introduction and welcome, asynchronous pre-recorded talks, and live Q&A sessions.

Fraunhofer International Science Campus for Women

FhG is organising the Fraunhofer International Science Campus during September 21-25, 2020 that brings together female students from around the world in order to meet leading researchers from different Fraunhofer institutes, learn about hot research topics and acquire tools for building a successful career path.

In selected seminars, workshops and lectures the students will be able to establish contacts for their future career that will be beneficial for pursuing leading positions in science and research.

More information can be found here.


EPiGRAM-HS along with EPEEC are organizing a Eurolab4HPC Thematic Session titled "Programming models for upcoming supercomputers" that is collocated with HiPEAC Computing Systems Week (CSW) Autumn 2019. The event is on October 28, 2019 in Bilbao, Spain.

The goal of the event is to merge efforts of the two European Exascale initiatives and exchange ideas about ongoing research on Exascale programming models. Participants not related to these projects are more than welcome and highly encouraged to join, including all the members within the Eurolab4HPC community.

Meeting on a Structured Approach for Programming Extreme Scale and Heterogeneous Systems

EPiGRAM-HS has organized a focus meeting at ETH on the 8th-10th of September 2019 in Zurich and gathered scientists within the HPC field to discuss recent advances and current challenges that the community is facing.

The goal of the meeting was to bring together leading experts in programming models and systems for networks, heterogeneous memories and compute units to define a structured approach for programming extreme scale and heterogeneous systems. The meeting included short informal presentations about perceived strength and limitations of different approaches together with potential solutions. There was also dedicated sessions for discussion in small groups.

EuroMPI 2019

10 - 13 September 2019, ETH Zurich

EPiGRAM-HS will actively participate in the organisation of EuroMPI 2019 which will take place in Zurich, Switzerland.

The EuroMPI conference is the preeminent meeting for users, developers and researchers to interact and discuss new developments and applications of message-passing parallel computing, in particular in and related to the Message Passing Interface (MPI). This includes parallel programming interfaces, libraries and languages, architectures, networks, algorithms, tools, applications, and High Performance Computing with particular focus on quality, portability, performance and scalability. The annual meeting has a long, rich tradition, and has been held in European countries since 1994.
