Calling PhD students: Showcase your work at SupercomputingAsia 2024

If you’re a PhD student in high-performance computing, AI, data science, and/or quantum computing fields, a new opportunity has been announced to showcase your dissertation work to an international audience and maybe even win a monetary prize.

SupercomputingAsia 2024 (SCA 2024) has announced a special Doctoral Showcase where students can present their research in a 3-min presentation to a non-specialist audience for a chance to win up to $3,000.

SCAsia is coming to Sydney, Australia from 19-22 February 2024. This is is the first time SCA is being held outside of Asia and is being co-organised by leading supercomputing centres of the region, anchored by the National Computational Infrastructure (NCI) in Australia. NeSI is among the co-organisers, joined by Pawsey Supercomputing Centre in Australia, National Supercomputing Centre (NSCC) in Singapore, and RIKEN and RIST in Japan.

The conference theme is 'Exascale readiness in Artificial Intelligence (AI), High Performance Computing (HPC), and Quantum'. It will host students, researchers, HPC professionals from academia, international delegates, public sector representatives, and industry experts from around the world.

AeRO Forum - Road testing a Research Data Reference Architecture

AeRO is working to improve our understanding of the underlying principles of such systems. We have developed a draft high-level Research Data Reference Architecture (RDRA). In this forum, we invite attendees to test this draft by measuring real world research data implementations against the RDRA. The outcome will be a series of documents that measure conformance to the RDRA, and may also highlight shortcoming of the RDRA itself. The intended audience is teams charged with implementing infrastructure in research organisations and vendors offering solutions. Details:


Conference on Next Generation Arithmetic (CoNGA) is the leading conference on emerging technologies for computer arithmetic. The demands of both AI and HPC have led the community to realize that something better than traditional floating-point arithmetic is needed to reach the speed, accuracy, and energy-efficiency that are needed for today’s most challenging workloads. In particular, posit arithmetic is achieving rapid adoption as a non-proprietary format, but CoNGA welcomes papers about any arithmetic format that breaks from the past and shows merit and promise.
