In Japan, a series of efforts to realize a "super smart society" or the so-called Society 5.0, where cyber space and physical space (or real society) are highly integrated, have been conducted under the 5th Science and Technology Basic Plan started in FY2016. The Post-K will play an important role for IoT, BigData and AI in Society 5.0, in addition to the application fields of the K computer. In order to sustain such a large-scale HPC infrastructure, it is important to construct an ecosystem on a global scale.
The 1st R-CCS International Symposium will summarize the efforts of the K computer, to be retired in 2019, as well as discuss emergent application fields for the Post-K and the Arm HPC ecosystem. The symposium consists of oral/poster sessions, invited talks, and panel discussions.
A Youth Workshop will be held on February 15-17, 2019 (before the 1st R-CCS International Symposium) for young researchers and students in computational science and technology.
Organized by RIKEN Center for Computational Science
