In 2018-2021, ICM was the organizer of the international conference "Supercomputing Frontiers Europe" and the series "Virtual ICM Seminars in Computer and Computational Science". On the following pages, we present the archival websites of these projects (SCFE, VIRTUAL ICM SEMINARS), along with the recordings of the talks (MEDIA).

Supercomputing Frontiers Europe

Supercomputing Frontiers is an annual international conference that provides a platform for thought leaders from both academia and industry to interact and discuss visionary ideas, important visionary trends and substantial innovations in supercomputing. The word frontiers in the conference’s name is to be interpreted in a very broad sense, where the frontiers don’t matter when one talks about science.

The first three editions of ‘Supercomputing Frontiers’ conferences were organized in Singapore by A*STAR Computational Resource Centre and National Supercomputing Centre Singapore, initiated by dr. Marek Michalewicz, former Chief Executive Officer at A*STAR Computational Resource Centre. Subsequently 2018-2021 editions were moved to Poland, renamed to ‘Supercomputing Frontiers Europe’ and organized by Interdisciplinary Centre for Mathematical and Computer Modeling (ICM), University of Warsaw.

Conferences showcased a successful scientific program. During SCFE21 the main topics were: special architectures, storage class memory, hybrid cloud/HPC, smart systems, hybrid quantum computing and HPC, Omics and Systems Biology, convergence of HPC, AI and Big Data, Semantic and Graph methods, and more. The program included special streams featuring selected achievements in India and Africa.

Each year SCFE had the pleasure to host outstanding speakers including world-renowned keynote speakers:

  • Roberto Car (Princeton University) | 2021
  • Irene Qualters (US Department of Energy) | 2021
  • Hiroaki Kinatno (the Systems Biology Institute) | 2021
  • Anders Dam Jensen (EuroHPC JU) | 2021
  • James K. Gimzewski (University of California) | 2020
  • Rob Knight (University of California) | 2020
  • Ziogas Aleksandros Nikolaos (ETH Zurich) |2020
  • Rupak Biswas (NASA Ames Research Centre) | 2019
  • Leon Chua (University of California Berkeley)| 2019
  • Paul Mesina (Argonne National Laboratory) | 2019
  • Whitfield Diffie | 2018
  • Thomas Sterling (Indiana University) | 2018
  • Karlheinz Meier (Heidelberg University) | 2018
  • Dimitr Kusnezov (Department of Energy) | 2018

Virtual ICM Seminars

Virtual ICM Seminars in Computer and Computational Science initiated by Dr. Marek Michalewicz and organized by the Interdisciplinary Center for Mathematical and Computational Modeling at the University of Warsaw were continuation of the Supercomputing Frontiers Europe 2020 conference, which took place virtually in March 2020.

Worldwide Open Science online meetings in HPC, Artificial Intelligence, Quantum Computing, BigData, IoT, computer and data networks are a place to meet and discuss with such personalities as Stephen Wolfram (Founder & CEO, Wolfram Research), Alan Edelman (MIT), Aneta Afelt (ICM, Espace-DEV, IRD Montpellier France), Simon Mutch (University of Melbourne) or Scott Aaronson (University of Texas at Austin).

From March 2020 till January 2022, over 1,600 people from almost all time zones participated in 21 virtual meetings in this series, and the Supercomputing Frontiers Europe website with libraries of speakers' recordings was visited by over 18,000. guests from 122 countries.
