European Policies for High Performance Computing

  1. 1. International Supercomputing Conference 18 June 2012, HamburgEuropean PoliciesforHigh Performance Computing Carl-Christian Buhr http://bit.ly/cc_buhr, @ccbuhr (All expressed views are those of the speaker.) http://slidesha.re/HPCforEU http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/3.0/de/

  3. 3. 101 Actions http://ec.europa.eu/digital-agenda Advising on... e-Infrastructures, HPC Cloud Computing ICT Research Policy Scientific Information etc. http://bit.ly/cc_buhr, @ccbuhrhttp://bit.ly/NeelieKroesEU,@NeelieKroesEU
  4. 4. The European Commission......is Policy Maker Launches policy debates Invites Member States to take action Proposes EU legislation...is Funding Agency e.g. Research & Innovation Access policies for funded research...is Infrastructure Builder Funds research infrastructures Funds related research Supports networking activities
  5. 5. Whys HPC on the Agenda ? Life Sciences and HealthWeather, Climate & Earth Sciences Industrial & Engineering Application for transport and energy Fundamental sciences: Physics, Chemistry, Material Sciences, Astrophysics Applications.
  6. 6. International contextUS: Out-compute=out-compete; USD 126m forexascale in 2012; 5-6 systems in Top10Japan: Biggest HPC system world-wide; 2systems in Top10China: Multi-billion investments intoindigenous supply chain; 2 in Top10Russia: HPC programme announced 2009India: USD 1bn announced March 2012EU: 1 system in Top10 (9th, in May 2012)
  7. 7. HPC in Europe: Problems EU lost 10% HPC capabilities 2007-2009 Japan overtook EU-27 in capacity Fragmentation of EU efforts across MS High reliance on foreign components European IPR benefiting others
  8. 8. HPC in Europe: Potentials Applications and codes Deep, diverse HPC user experience and leading capabilities in power-efficient microelectronics processor designs interconnects and mass storage systems (sub)system integration software tools Potential openness and knowledge transfer to industry not yet exploited
  9. 9. ...adopted the HPC Communication
  10. 10. Europes Place in a Global Race Europe needs native HPC capabilities to remain competitive Native HPC systems and services would contribute to growth and competitiveness HPC helps address societal challenges, ranging from climate change to Alzheimer Peta/Exa transition promises innovation for science applications and computingHigh-Performance Computing: Europes Place in a Global Race COM(2012)045, 15/02/2012, http://eur-lex.europa.eu/LexUriServ/LexUriServ.do?uri=CELEX:52012DC0045:EN:NOT
  11. 11. Key Policy Actions 1/2 Governance at EU level: Industrial Technology Platform, PRACE and centres of excellence Double HPC investment (MS, EU, industry) Tools: Resource pooling and pre- commercial procurementHigh-Performance Computing: Europes Place in a Global Race COM(2012)045, 15/02/2012, http://eur-lex.europa.eu/LexUriServ/LexUriServ.do?uri=CELEX:52012DC0045:EN:NOT
  12. 12. Key Policy Actions 2/2 Developing the HPC ecosystem: PRACE services to industry, HW&SW co-design Industrial exploitation: Competence centres, workforce, EU supply Level-playing field for EU HPC supplier Tackling market access problems Additional exploitation obligations?High-Performance Computing: Europes Place in a Global Race COM(2012)045, 15/02/2012, http://eur-lex.europa.eu/LexUriServ/LexUriServ.do?uri=CELEX:52012DC0045:EN:NOT
