The workshop brings together key stakeholders in the areas of Mathematics for Exascale, Data Science and in a wider aspect Digital Science to outline the needs and the challenges and the approaches to address them.

The speakers come from leading research and supercomputing centres and most of them have contributed to the latest Mathematics for Europe consultation (2016), where the aforementioned report outlining the mathematics as being “essential and indispensable for addressing the major challenges in science, technology and society”.

We will present the strategic research agenda of ETP4HPC in the context of mathematics and algorithms for extreme scale HPC systems outlining possible approaches to address these challenges and needs. The talks and discussion will further focus on the scalable mathematical methods and algorithms able to handle data and compute intensive applications at scale, and will present the methods, algorithms and approaches addressing key challenges at the interface of Data and Computational Science. Finally, the latest developments in the area of mathematics for Industry and in the wider context of Digital Science will be presented.

The Panel session aims to engage the participants in discussion for the possible synergies between different EU initiatives and to highlight the approaches to address the challenges facing research in academic and industrial settings.

A single registration form is available to register to all workshops with a unique fee of 60€. The registration form will be open until 5th May 2017
