Data-intensive scientific computing challenges towards 2030
International collaborations in all domains of science will see an unprecedented increase of research data to be processed in the coming decade. The generation of new scientific knowledge will be more and more dependent on the technical ability of research organizations to access and process such data, which will reach unprecedented volumes of
hundreds of Petabytes of generated data per month. In order to retain its scientific excellence and address global societal challenges such as climate change, European research performing organizations need to join forces to find common solutions to common problems.
We will see how advanced scientific computing was instrumental to support some of the most challenging ground-breaking discoveries of the past years, and we will then see how the European Open Science Cloud and the ENES climate modelling initiative are together setting the European agenda that will tackle IT research and innovation for the coming decade.
Moderator: prof. Sandro Luigi Fiore
