The 2nd R-CCS International Symposium K to Fugaku:Simulation, BigData and AI supporting Society 5.0 February 17-18, 2020 Nichii Gakkan Kobe Port Island Center & R-CCS, Kobe, JAPAN

富岳 Fugaku

RIKEN Center for computational science (R-CCS) has been working on researches and operation of K-computer to create innovative results for science and technology as well as developing the successor of K-computer,Supercomputer Fugaku.

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. Supercomputer Fugaku will play an important role for IoT, BigData and AI in Society 5.0, in addition to the application fields that have been developed for the K computer. In order to sustain such a large-scale HPC infrastructure, it is important to construct an ecosystem on a global scale.

In the 2nd R-CCS international symposium, we will review the efforts made with K-computer which was already shut down at the end of August, 2019. We will also discuss future researches on computer science and computational science considering "Post-Moore" era, as well as ARM ecosystems and new applications expected for supercomputing with Fugaku.
