Some notes on ParCo2017 Conference

15 September 2017

ParcoCo2017, the International Conference on Parallel Computing this year took place on 12-15 September in Bologna, co-hosted by Cineca. The ParCo conferences stimulate the development and application of parallel computers on a world-wide scale. Here some notes.

The ParCo 2017 conference took place in Bologna this week hosted by CINECA in cooperation with the University of Pisa, Dept. of computer Science and ISTI/CNR of Pisa. The conference hosted more than 100 delegates from more than 20 countries from all the 5 continents. 6 invited speakers, and more than 30 parallel sessions presented recent advances and discussed new research topics in the area covered by the conference, which is focused on all aspects related to parallel computing. The invited talks covered themes related to robotics, quantum computing, IoT, climate and weather forecast, HPC computer installation trends as well as new programming models for HPC. As usual in ParCo (which is run every two years in Europe) the delegates had good opportunities to discuss new research results and to interact each other to enforce new cooperations and possibilites for research interactions. Most of the the information relative to the conference can be found ParCo's website and Cineca's HPC website. The proceeedings will be published after the conference, as usual, with IOS press and will be available beginning of 2018.
