POP member IT4Innovations National Supercomputing Center organized the 4th High Performance Computing in Science and Engineering international conference which took place in Beskydy mountains, Czech Republic, from May 20th till May 23rd, 2019. Almost 100 experts and students from around the world discussed their experience in the area of supercomputing technologies, applied mathematics, numerical simulations, data analysis and visualization, and high performance computing in general.
Among the presenters were well known experts from Czech Republic as well as from Europe and the USA . Jakub Kurzak from University of Tennessee presented SLATE (Software for Linear Algebra Targeting Exascale) and Garth Wells from Cambridge University demonstrated how high performance computing can help with solving complex engineering systems. Dominik Göddeke from University of Stuttgart discussed approaches for enabling PDE software frameworks for exascale machines. Finally, Jaroslav Křivánek from Charles University in Prague presented computational challenges in the area of computer graphic, in particular rendering and 3D printing.
During the poster session, Lubomír Říha from IT4I presented the POP CoE and the performance assessment services it provides to parallel application developers. As the nature of the conference attracted many application developers targeting large scale systems, many of them visited Lubomír and his colleagues during the poster session to find out more about POP.
