The leading supercomputing nations are constructing supercomputers that will start operation within the next two years, with peak performances far beyond one Petaflop/s or sustained Petaflop/s performances in several non-trivial application areas.

In this session, world-renowned experts from three continents directing next-generation supercomputer development projects will present their vision and will give a broader review of present and future developments in their countries and continents. The three distinguished speakers for Europe, Asia and America are:

  • Prof. Dr. Jesús Labarta
    Director Computational Sciences Department, Barcelona Supercomputing Center, Spain
  • Dr. Tadashi Watanabe
    Project Leader, RIKEN Next-Generation Supercomputer R&D Center, Japan
    Lead designer of the NEC SX series and of the Earth Simulator
  • Prof. Dr. Thom Dunning
    Director of the Institute for Advanced Computing Applications and Technologies and of the National Center for Supercomputing Applications, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA

The program will be highly interesting for researchers, developers and vendors involved in HPC and supercomputing. You should attend this session if you want to get the latest overview of the most exciting world-wide development projects of supercomputers.
