Senior researcher for Institute for Information and Communication Technologies (IICT), HES-SO

The Institute for Information and Communication Technologies (IICT), HES-SO / campus HEIG-Vd (<>), Yverdon-les-Bains, Switzerland, has an opening for a senior researcher (at the postdoctoral level) to head the ADMIT (Automated Dynamic Machine Learning for time based forecasts) project.

Our aim is to expand and strengthen our machine learning group in a domain with a lot of future exiting opportunities and challenges such as dynamic automation of machine learning. New projects are beginning in this area and researchers are needed to accelerate our academic research and industrial applications development.

We have the following requirements:

*   Ph.D. in applied mathematics (possibly related to data science), computer science, theoretical phy…

First NESUS Winter School & PhD Symposium. 8-11 February 2016.

Program and agenda
Training schools are mainly devoted to ESR to build up expertise and learn early about different techniques and methodologies. This first training school covers several topics related to the NESUS action, including talks and tutorials from senior members from the action and external invited speaker.  Most tutorials include hands-on labs. You may see the program and more info in this link.

BOF in SC15: Taking On Exascale Challenges: Key Lessons And International Collaboration Opportunities Delivered By European Cutting-Edge Hpc Initiatives


SESSION LEADER(S):Mark Parsons, Jean-François Lavignon, Jean-Philippe Nominé, Estela Suarez, Jesus Carretero.


THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 19th. TIME: 3:30PM – 5:00PM.   ROOM:13A


The established EU-funded Exascale projects and initiatives (CRESTA, DEEP/DEEP-ER, MontBlanc, NUMEXAS, EXA2CT, EPiGRAM and NESUS) will present their status, lessons learned and potential cross-region synergies.

In addition, the long-term EU effort to develop, produce and exploit Exascale platforms continues with 19 projects within the first part of the Horizon 2020 program addressing: HPC core technologies and architectures, programming methodologies, languages and tools, APIs and system software, new mathematical and algorithmic approaches.

A European status update will be prese…

Course: 'Maximizing performance in practical HPC applications'. Uppsala University



The Swedish e-Science Education (SeSE) program is organizing the
graduate course

‘Maximizing performance in practical HPC applications’

to take place in Uppsala, Sweden on Nov 17 – Dec 3, 2015.

The aim of the course is two-fold:
– to give a basic understanding of how to use scientific libraries and
their high performance features for efficient large scale scientific
computations, and
– to raise the awareness regarding modern language constructs and code
organization techniques that help improve efficiency and maintainability
for scientific codebases.

As for other SeSE courses,  the organization is as follows:
Week 47: Nov 16-20 Preparation, self-reading
Week 48: Nov 23-27 Lectures in Uppsala
Week 49: Nov 30-Dec 3 Project work

The project is disc…

HPC-Wire: Europe Launches Ultrascale Computing Initiative

NESUS – or Network for Sustainable Ultrascale Computing – formed earlier this year to study the challenges of ultrascale computing. Launched with about 30 European partner countries, the cross-community initiative has grown to include 39 European countries and six countries from other continents. The goal: to produce a catalogue of open source applications for large-scale complex systems two to three orders of magnitude larger than today’s systems.

Network for Sustainable Ultrascale Computing (NESUS)

Ultrascale systems are envisioned as large-scale complex systems joining parallel and distributed computing systems that will be two to three orders of magnitude larger that today’s systems. The EU is already funding large scale computing systems research, but it is not coordinated across researchers, leading to duplications and inefficiencies. The goal of the NESUS Action is to establish an open European research network targeting sustainable solutions for ultrascale computing aiming at cross fertilization among HPC, large scale distributed systems, and big data management. The network will contribute to glue disparate researchers working across different areas and provide a meeting ground for researchers in these separate areas to exchange ideas, to identify synergies, and to pursue common activities in research topics such as sustainable software solutions (applications and system software stack), data management, energy efficiency, and resilience. Some of the most active research groups of the world in this area are members of this proposal. This Action will increase the value of these groups at the European-level by reducing duplication of efforts and providing a more holistic view to all researchers, it will promote the leadership of Europe, and it will increase their impact on science, economy, and society.
