On July 5, 2021 at 2pm (GMT +7), I’ll participate to the EU-ASEAN High-Performance Computing (HPC) Virtual School 2021: System Design and HPC Applications as speaker during the session dedicated to the “Overview of the European HPC ecosystem” – see program.

My keynote, entitled “Outcomes of the EU-ASEAN HPC Mapping Study for ASEAN and European HPC Research Infrastructures”, is based on the E-READI HPC Expert Study I’ve done for the European Commission [1].

   1st EU-ASEAN HPC Virtual School 2021: System Design and HPC Applications (July 5-9, 2021)

The EU-ASEAN HPC Virtual School 2021 is a hands-on virtual curriculum taught by foremost international experts in HPC technology. It is hosted by National Science and Technology Development Agency (NSTDA) Supercomputer Center (ThaiSC), Thailand. Over five days from 5 to 9 July 2021, 60 selected participants from ASEAN Member States will learn about the fundamentals of HPC design and applications to critical domains such as COVID-19, urgent computing and climate science from international luminaries from Europe, ASEAN and Japan through formal and practical courses. By attending the school, the students will learn basic HPC design and programming skills to access local and international HPC platforms with proficiency. They will also gain exposure to international collaboration opportunities in an EU-ASEAN context. Students who complete all practical exercises will receive a digital certificate of participation.

This virtual school is carried out in the framework of the Enhanced Regional EU-ASEAN Dialogue Instrument (E-READI). E-READI, a demand-driven instrument that supports ASEAN regional integration by strengthening EU-ASEAN networks and exchanging knowledge and experience in policy areas of joint interest. In addition to engaging with policy makers from EU and ASEAN institutions and Member States, it facilitates ongoing and new dialogues with civil society, the private sector, and other relevant stakeholders across various policy areas. It further strengthens the standing EU-ASEAN Dialogue Meeting on Science and Technology and the EU-ASEAN Strategic Partnership.
