On the Convergence of HPC and AI
Michael Resch, University of Stuttgart, Germany
Supercomputing has seen a tremendous development over the last decades. The field that starts to replace supercomputing as the most visible and debated topic in IT seems to be Artificial Intelligence. In this talk we will present how AI can benefit from the usage of supercomputers and how supercomputing centers can act as enabler and accelerators for AI research. We will also present how AI can help to boost productivity and quality of supercomputing simulations.

Performance Evaluation of SX-Aurora TSUBASA and Its Quantum Annealing-Assisted Application Design
Hiroaki Kobayashi, Tohoku University, Japan
In this talk, I will present the overview of our on-going project entitled "A Quantum-Annealing-Assisted Next Generation HPC Infrastructure and its Applications.” This project explores the design space of the new-generation high performance computing infrastructure that incorporates an emerging computing technology into the classical computing platform. SX-Aurora TSUBASA plays a main role in this infrastructure, however, it is assisted by a quantum-annealing machine to accelerate some class of applications kernels such as optimization and clustering. First, I will show the performance of SX-Aurora TSUBASA by using several representative kernels, and then discuss some applications to be implemented on a hybrid computing environment of SX-Aurora TSUBASA and the D-wave machine.

The Tianhe’s approach to IO-500: Experience & Practice
Ruibo Wang, National University of Defense Technology, China
After a brief introduction to the IO-500 list, this talk focuses on our I/O enhanced system: Tianhe-2E. The brand-new system achieved the top bandwidth performance and got the 3rd position in the IO-500 list last year (2019). The perspective of I/O enhanced computer system design, especially the lessons we’ve learned are discussed toward the end of the talk.

Less Moore, more Brain
Thomas Ludwig, German Climate Computing Centre & Universität Hamburg, Germany
The current decelerating progress in semiconductor technology in particular with transistors limits the future increase of computational performance. This becomes a challenge for high performance computing and leading edge science. The talk will highlights trends of this development and illustrate ways to increase scientific productivity by using concepts of machine learning. As an example we highlight the situation at the German Climate Computing Centre and its community of earth science researchers.

Как ускорить ваш кластер в десятки раз, ничего не переделывая?
Константин Мозговой, IBM East Europe / Asia
Требования к вычислительным мощностям растут опережающими темпами. Это сдерживает разработки, не позволяя повышать точность. IBM предлагает новый подход, обеспечивающий кратное ускорение получения результатов... не увеличивая вычислительную мощность, а используя передовые методы оптимизации.

HPC perspectives for Europe - Towards a European exascale ecosystem
Thomas Lippert, Jülich Supercomputing Center, Germany
Almost ten years ago, the PRACE partners started with advanced HPC services dedicated to European science. PRACE is supported by the PRACE member states and by the EU through six + one implementation projects so far and has been able to create a common European umbrella over national HPC ecosystems. Remarkably, PRACE now has over 70 partner institutions, 7 high-profile systems, 700 major projects, over 100 petaflop/s accumulated peak performance and 12000 trainees in PRACE training courses. His scientific case from 2018/19 is considered a showcase roadmap of how science (and industry) will benefit from exascale supercomputers. With the EuroHPC Joint Undertaking (EuroHPC JU), the Union has created in 2018 a pan-European organization with 32 members, which will extend the development of a European supercomputing infrastructure at the top of the deployment pyramid, i.e. with systems owned by Europeans at European level. So far, five petascale systems and three pre-exascale systems designed for the 200 petaflop/s range are in the procurement phase. In addition, EuroHPC is now the main organization for financing hardware and software development at European level and is strongly committed to enabling the construction of exascale systems based on European technologies. This effort will continue in 2023 towards the first exascale systems in Europe. Forschungszentrum Jülich is strongly involved in this process and is leading important European-funded projects towards exascale. The DEEP series of such projects has introduced a new computing paradigm, the Modular Supercomputing Architecture (MSA), which aims at the most cost-effective and efficient exascale computing with a focus on the simulation of complex systems and AI-based simulations.
