This year’s edition of the Supercomputing Frontiers Europe conference will take place in July. Due to the ongoing pandemic, the event will be held online. The SCFE 2021 paper submission is open now. It will be possible to send articles until 16th May.

The conference is free of charge and enables the participation of HPC enthusiasts from around the world. It brings together scientists, supercomputer centre managers, and representatives of leading IT vendors and start-ups. It is organised by the Interdisciplinary Centre for Mathematical and Computational Modelling of the University of Warsaw.


The last year’s event – SCFE 2020 – was a great success, with more than 1100 registrations from over 60 countries. To maintain momentum and provide a platform for HPC and the computing science community, ICM organises the Virtual ICM Seminars in Computer and Computational Science that have already attracted 1330 viewers. 


“We are convinced that Supercomputing Frontiers Europe 2021 will maintain the highest standards established in all previous events. Our new initiative called Virtual ICM Seminars enabled us to host seminars by such outstanding luminaries as Hiroaki Kitano (Systems Biology Institute, Tokyo), Stephen Wolfram (Founder & CEO, Wolfram Research) or Alan Edelman (creator of Julia language, MIT). We will continue to seek ideas that have the potential to change the course of supercomputing, and we will focus on the newest global trends and substantial innovations,” says Dr. Marek Michalewicz from ICM, Committee Chair and the creator of Supercomputing Frontiers conferences. 


The themes for SCFE21: 

  • special architectures, 
  • storage class memory, 
  • hybrid cloud / HPC, 
  • smart systems, 
  • hybrid quantum computing and HPC, 
  • Omics and Systems Biology,
  • the convergence of HPC, 
  • AI and Big Data,
  • Semantic and Graph methods. 

The programme will also cover streams featuring selected achievements in India and Africa. 


The SCFE 2021 will take place on 19th-23rd July. The call for papers is open now, until 16th May.
