The SupercomputingAsia conference is leaving Singapore for the first time in its history and coming to Australia next February.
QCIF has signed on as a bronze sponsor of the event, being held at the International Convention Centre in Sydney across 19–22 February 2024.
The international conference will bring together experts to discuss insights and developments in high-performance computing (HPC).
The conference theme is exascale readiness in AI, HPC, and Quantum.
SCA 2024 will host students, researchers, HPC professionals from academia, international delegates, public sector representatives, and industry experts from around the world.
Co-organised by leading supercomputing centres of the Asia-Pacific region, including those in Australia, Japan, Singapore, Thailand and Aotearoa New Zealand, and anchored by the National Computational Infrastructure (NCI) in Australia, SCA 2024 aims to promote a vibrant and shared high-performance computing and Artificial Intelligence ecosystem, for both the public and private sectors, in the region.
The AeRO (Australasian eResearch Organisations) Forum will be co-located with SCA 2024 in Sydney.
The forum’s main discussion point will be the draft, high-level Research Data Reference Architecture (RDRA) developed in Australia.
The RDRA allows implementers to make local and commercial decisions while still meeting the core requirements of a research data management platform.
Attendees are invited to test the RDRA draft by measuring real-world research data implementations against it.
The intended audience is teams charged with implementing infrastructure in research organisations and vendors offering solutions.
