Exascale Applications and Software Conference (EASC 2018), Edinburgh, April 2018

*** Conference update
**********************************************************************

Conference update: Andreas Olofsson (program Manager in the Microsystems Technology Office at DARPA) and Satoshi Matsuoka (Professor of Global Scientific Information Center and Tokyo Institute of Technology) have confirmed as two of our keynote speakers.

Before working at DARPA Andreas Olofsson founded Adapteva and created the Epiphany many-core processor. A number of variants of this chip, with 16, 64 and 1024 cores have been designed which are all very energy efficient, cheap and powerful which makes them very interesting for use in HPC and embedded systems alike. Adapteva also produced the Parallella, a single board computer for less than $99, which combines an Epiphany chip with standard CPU. Andreas is therefore at the cutting edge of chip design technology and a strong advocate of the fact that you don’t necessarily need the money and resources of extremely large chip companies to make innovative hardware.

Satoshi Matsuoka is a Full Professor at the Global Scientific Information and Computing Center (GSIC). He is the leader of the TSUBAME series of supercomputers, including TSUBAME2.0 which was the first supercomputer in Japan to exceed Petaflop performance and TSUBAME 3.0 which was number 1 in the world for power efficiency in the Green 500 2017 list. Satoshi has a wealth of experience and knowledge in HPC and is one of the key global players pushing forward exa-scale technologies.
