International Symposium on Grids & Clouds 2020

ISGC 2020The International Symposium on Grids and Clouds (ISGC) 2020 will be held at Academia Sinica in Taipei on 8–13 March 2020. The main theme of ISGC 2020 is 'Challenges in High Performance Data Analytics: Combining Approaches in HPC, HTC, Big Data and AI'.

While the research data are becoming a real asset nowadays, it is an information and knowledge gained through thorough analysis that makes them so valuable. To process vast amounts of data collected, novel high-performance data analytics methods, and tools are needed, combining classical simulation oriented approaches, big data processing, and advanced AI methods. Such a combination is not straightforward and needs novel insights at all levels of the computing environment – from the network and hardware fabrics through the operating systems and middleware to the platforms and software, not forgetting the security – to support data-oriented research. Challenging use cases that apply difficult scientific problems are necessary to properly drive the evolution and also to validate such high-performance data analytics environments.

The goal of ISGC 2020 is to create a face-to-face venue where individual communities and national representatives can present and share their contributions to the global puzzle and contribute thus to the solution of global challenges.
