NSCC ASPIRE Issue #2 – SCA2018 – Gathering the Best of HPC in Asia

SCA2018 - Gathering the Best of HPC in Asia

NSCC is embarking on SupercomputingAsia 2018 (SCA18), an inaugural annual conference that will encompass an umbrella of notable supercomputing and allied events in Asia with the key objective of promoting a vibrant and shared HPC ecosystem in Asia, where the most exciting HPC developments are taking place.

SCA18 will be held from 26 to 29 March 2018 at Resorts World Convention Centre, Singapore.

The scientific programme of SCA18 has its roots in Supercomputing Frontiers (SCF), which is Singapore’s annual international HPC conference which provides a platform for thought leaders from both academia and industry to interact and discuss visionary ideas, important global trends and substantial innovations in supercomputing. The conference was inaugurated in 2015 and helmed by A*STAR Computational Resource Centre (A*CRC). In March last year, the National Supercomputing Centre (NSCC) Singapore took over hosting of Supercomputing Frontiers 2017 (SCF17). 

SCF17 was attended by over 450 delegates from over 12 different countries. Riding on the success of the Supercomputing Frontiers conference series, SCA18 programme highlights will include: HPC Technology Updates & Case Studies, Scientific paper presentations, Academic activities & workshop for students and Co-located HPC events.

Co-located events include:

Asia-Pacific Advanced Network Meeting (APAN45)

Conference on Next Generation Arithmetic (CoNGA)

Singapore-Japan Joint Sessions

Supercomputing Frontiers Asia (SCF Asia)

Towards an Asia Pacific Research Platform (APRP)
