The European HPC Summit Week, hosted by EXDCI, is a great opportunity to see the network with all relevant European HPC stakeholders, from technology suppliers and HPC infrastructures to scientific and industrial HPC users in Europe.
For the second year running, we co-hosted a workshop with the SAGE project, another storage-focused H2020 project. This workshop discussed how these two H2020 I/O and storage-oriented projects are uniquely addressing the challenges of IO at Exascale. The workshope featured speakers from both projects and presents the progress these initiatives have made in tackling this hard problem.

14:50 - 15:20 NEXTGenIO architecture and use cases (Michele Weiland, EPCC)
15:20 - 15:40 SAGE Platform Status & Usage (Ganesan Umanesan, Seagate)
15:40 - 16:10 NEXTGenIO applications: Memory and I/O profiles (Tomislav Subic, Arctur)
16:10 - 16:30 Runtimes for pre/post processing (Nicolas Vandenbergen, Juelich Supercomputing Center)
16:30 - 17:00 Coffee Break
