cHiPSet featured at the BDVA Summit in Valencia

The Big Data Value Association (BDVA) is the private counterpart of the European Commission for the implementation of the Big Data Value PPP as part of the European Digital Single Market. Organised in Valencia from 30/Nov to 2/Dec, the BDVA Summit hosted over 300 individuals from industry, academia, non-profit organisations, and governments in Europe. The cHiPSET presentation was included as part of the “High Performance Data Analytics: Big Compute and Big Data Working Together For European Success” session hosted by Intel on 1/Dec. The session included two additional presentation from ETP4HPC, the European Technology Platform for High-Performance Computing, and the IPCEI-HPC-BDA, Important Project […]

WG Meeting in Luxembourg

Dear Action Members, The face-to-face Working Group Meeting in GP2  will happen very soon in Luxembourg. We invited 45 WG members to attend the meeting and expect a lot of interesting discussions and workplan for the rest of the GP2. The meeting will be hosted by University of Luxembourg and it is co-located with CloudCom 2016 conference. Some of the cHiPSet members will participate at that event as well. Please find appended the travel infomation for those who still haven’t managed the travel – and link to the Conference Webpage. The meeting agenda is available at Agenda   warm regards and I […]

New book of Action Members

Dear All, It is a pleasure for me to announce that we just edited the new book with the results of scientific work of the members of our Action during the First Grant Period.  Here is the book flyer from Springer.     Congratulations and thanks for your hard work! You can find in the book few chapter of the guests we invited to the book, who are our potential new members. Once again congratulations! Joanna Kolodziej – Action Chair  

Post TR publication

Dear Action Members, The 1st Training School of the Action has been organized in Bucharest in September 2017. We could invite and support only 20 trainees from the outside of the Hosting Institution. The slides from all lectures are avaiable the TR webpage:   However, we arranged the publication of the essentials of all lectures as a book of the Springer Series ” Briefs in Computational Intelligence” The book is expected in the middle of 2017! I would like to thank all trainers for their contributions. Joanna Kolodziej – Action Chair

Training School in Bucharest

Dear Action Members,   The 1st cHiPSet Training School (TR) was hosted in Bucharest in September 2016. It was a nice experience and great event of the Action. You can find the details together with the trainers presentations  at the TR webpage: cHiPSet Training School 2016 You can find there also a short report on the event and feedback form. We would like to thank all trainers and trainees for their lectures and participation. Our warmest thanks go to the local organizers for all their efforts and perfect organization.  The school was interesting also for the “youngest future promising researchers” 🙂 […]

Special Issue on Modeling and Evaluation of Highly complex Computer Systems Architectures

Increasingly available computing resources enable the design and implementation of services that are more and more sophisticated, and rely on hig scale, high efficiency computational and communication architectures. This is a fundamental, foundational resource for computational science, that benefits from theoretical results and innovation in algorithms, but also needs the availability of raw computing power abundance to face the challenges of increasingly complex problems. State of the art technological solutions, like federated multi-site cloud and grid systems, heterogeneous systems and any kind of large scale systems, are characterized by the fact that scale and distribution are fundamental parameters to be […]

Training School

The Training School to be organised next week in Bucharest, Romania, 21-23 September 2016, on “New Trends in Modeling and Simulation in HPC Systems” is about to start. The organisation team welcome on the occasion all participants! The selection for the event was very tough, with many applicants worldwide. The event benefit from the participation of a panel of distinguish Trainers, top-experts in either the field of Modeling and Simulation, or HPC Systems. More than 20 Trainers are participating as Trainees, representing the majority of countries in the COST Action. We are proud to host top-quality PhD students and Early […]

Collaboration with ECMS

It is our great pleasure to announce the collaboration of our Action with European Council on Modelling and Simulation (ECMS). The details and perspectives of the collaboration were discussed by the Action Chair – Prof. Joanna Kolodziej – and the President of ECMS – Prof. Khalid Al-Begain – during the 30th Jubilee Edition of annual ECMS conference in Regensburg (Germany) – ECMS ( is a nonprofit organisation. It is well recognized as an independent forum of European academics and practitioners dedicated to research, development, and applications of modelling and simulation. ECMS conference proceedings are indexed in all major journal citation databases. Many Action members […]
