INESC-ID Most Recent H2020 Achievement: SparCity
An EuroHPC Joint Undertaking project has been recently approved. This project was highly ranked among all submitted projects to the 1st EuroHPC call.
The SparCity project aims at creating a supercomputing framework that will provide efficient algorithms and coherent tools specifically designed for maximising the performance and energy efficiency of sparse computations on emerging HPC systems, while also opening up new usage areas for sparse computations in data analytics and deep learning.
To demonstrate the effectiveness, societal impact, and usability of the framework, the SparCity project will enhance the computing scale and energy efficiency of four challenging real-life applications that come from drastically different domains, namely, computational cardiology, social networks, bioinformatics and autonomous driving. By targeting this collection of challenging applications, SparCity will develop world-class, extreme scale and energy-efficient HPC technologies.
This research project is coordinated at INESC-ID by Leonel Sousa and Aleksandar Ilic, and involves partnerships with Sabanci Universitesi (Turkey), Simula Research Laboratory (Norway), Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitaet Muenchen (Germany), Graphcore AS (Norway). The general coordinator of this project is the KOC University (Turkey).
SparCity major goal is to build a sustainable exascale ecosystem and increasing Europe’s competitiveness.
Energy Virtual Experience – EVEx 2020
The event “Energy Virtual Experience” ( EVEx 2020) will take place online, from October 26 to 30.
“Energy Virtual Experience” will provide 4 different interactive experiences: EVEx Talks, EVEx MasterClass, EVEx Academy, and EVEx Expo/Busines. These four experiences will be centered on “Ibero-American post-pandemic energy transition”.
Looking to stimulate interdisciplinary studies and innovative solutions in energy area, call for papers and projects will be launched soon.
INESC-ID researcher and IST Professor, Rui Castro, is member of the scientific committee of EVEx 2020.
