HOOVER: Distributed, Flexible, and Scalable Streaming Graph Processing on OpenSHMEM
RICE UNIVERSITY –
Many problems can benefit from being phrased as a graph processing or graph analytics problem: infectious disease modeling, insider threat detection, fraud prevention, social network analysis, and more. These problems all share a common property: the relationships between entities in these systems are crucial to understanding the overall behavior of the systems themselves. However, relations are rarely if ever static. As our ability to collect information on those relations improve (e.g. on financial transactions in fraud prevention), the value added by large-scale, high-performance, dynamic/streaming (rather than static) graph analysis becomes significant.
This talk introduces HOOVER, a distributed software framework for large-scale, dynamic graph modeling and analysis. HOOVER sits on top of OpenSHMEM, a PGAS programming system, and enables users to plug in application-specific logic while handling all runtime coordination of computation and communication. HOOVER has demonstrated scaling out to 24,576 cores, and is flexible enough to support a wide range of graph-based applications, including infectious disease modeling and anomaly detection.

Mathematics, Physics & Machine Learning Seminar Series (Online)
The Mathematics, Physics & Machine Learning seminar series has started on October 2020 and runs until March 2021.
The seminars aim to bring together mathematicians and physicists interested in machine learning (ML) with ML and AI experts interested in mathematics and physics, with the goal of introducing innovative Mathematics and Physics-inspired techniques in Machine Learning and, reciprocally, applying Machine Learning to problems in Mathematics and Physics.
Attendance is free but registration is required.

International European Conference on Parallel and Distributed Computing
The 27th International European Conference on Parallel and Distributed Computing (Euro-Par 2021) will take from August 30 to September 3 2021 in Lisbon.
Euro-Par is the prime European conference covering all aspects of parallel and distributed processing, ranging from theory to practice, from small to the largest parallel and distributed systems and infrastructures, from fundamental computational problems to full-fledged applications, from architecture, compiler, language and interface design and implementation, to tools, support infrastructures, and application performance aspects.
The 2021 edition of Euro-Par will be organized as a collaboration between INESC-ID and Instituto Superior Técnico (IST).
