Description

PRACE recently engaged in the coordination of European HPC services and activities through a series of events and workshops. This includes access to HPC systems, HPC user support, training in HPC, HPC policy, HPC technology development, HPC operations and dissemination. The objective of this session is to present and discuss the final conclusions of this initiative with the key stakeholders, including the new "HPC in Europe" services portal, arising from these coordination efforts.

Answering the policies of the European Commission ('High Performance Computing: Europe's place in a Global Race', followed by 'European Cloud Initiative - Building a competitive data and knowledge economy in Europe'), the European HPC stakeholders have recently engaged in the coordination of their HPC services and activities, with the objective to set the role and responsibilities of each major European HPC actor with regards to Access to HPC systems, HPC user support, Training in HPC, HPC policy, HPC technology development, HPC operations and dissemination. To this end, a working group led by PRACE distributed a self-evaluation survey to more than 80 institutions, in order to identify their services and competences in HPC. The first analysis of the results was presented and discussed during the EuroHPC Summit Week 2019 in Poznan. A follow-up session was held in the form of a BoF during SC19.

In this session, the final conclusions of this working group will be presented and discussed, including a proposal for the boundaries and responsibilities in Support to HPC users and Training in HPC among PRACE, the European Centres of Excellence in HPC and other actors. The ultimate goal of this session will be to analyse collectively the conclusions of the working group and engage the utilisation of the new HPC in Europe portal as a framework to collect the complete catalogue of HPC services throughout Europe, following a user-driven and audience-oriented approach.
