CANCELLED: The 2nd International Workshop on the U.S.-China Collaborations in Experience and Best Practice in Supercomputing
TimeTuesday, July 2410:30am - 5pm
DescriptionThis workshop is the second of a series to provide a forum for leaders, technology developers and resources operators from leading international supercomputing centers to share ideas and experiences in deploying and servicing supercomputing technologies for open science users. The development and deployment of supercomputing technologies in China have grown rapidly over past decade. Together, China and US currently host six out of ten fastest supercomputers in the world. We expect several developments from US and China in 2018 may have significant impacts on the landscape once again such as new upgrade to the existing TianHe 2 supercomputer in China. Service providers in both countries face a lot of similar challenges, such as large potential user communities, ever-increasing needs of high-performance computing resources, rapid hardware technology development and evolving demands. This workshop will invite managers, researchers and engineers from multiple supercomputing centers in US and China. The participants will report on the latest deployment status, share the best practices in their daily operations, explore solutions for common issues and discuss their visions toward exascale computing in the near future. A focus of this workshop will be on the new trend on the hardware development and software deployment in high performance computing driven by increasing demand of performance machine learning, deep learning and artificial intelligence in China and US. and how those new technology advancements can not only meet new usage demands but also improve the performance of traditional high performance computing applications.
