Dear collegues!

ANO «National Supercomputing Forum», Program Systems Institute of the RAS and Eurasian Supercomputing Technological Platform, with the support of the Presidential Grants Fondation, are proud to present the First Youth Conference for students and post-graduate students on the platform of «National Supercomputing Forum – 2018».

It’s no secret that one of the most acute problems facing the national science is the problem of aging specialists. The average age of specialists in science, education and production in Russia is unacceptably high. On the other hand, the opportunities for young specialists to enter a large science are limited by the naturally high “threshold of entry”. For example, it is virtually impossible for students to undergo a rigorous selection to participate in a truly serious scientific conference. Conducting a youth conference on the basis of the National Supercomputer Forum is designed to give young specialists the opportunity to enter the community, and the community to see and notice young professionals.

That is why, we consider it very important that the conference is held at the same time and in the same place as the rest of the Forum’s events. This will allow the participants not only to speak for themselves, but also to listen to speeches of leading Russian and foreign specialists, to take part in training events, etc.

The chairman of the organizing committee agreed to become a mathematician with broad Russian and international fame, prof. N.N. Nepeivoda. It is planned to include leading Russian and foreign experts in the program committee of the conference. Reviews of the members of the program committee on the participants’ articles are planned to be brought to the authors, because they will be a useful educational material for them.

If you are a student, a graduate student, a young specialist or a teacher / supervisor, a leader, we invite you to participate in the Conference. The form of such participation can be different. You can just come, listen, watch, make contacts. You can make a report and / or take part of exhibition. You can also take part in the preparation of the conference in any role from a member of the organizing committee (it is not yet fully formed), to the volunteer at the stage of the event.

We invite students and post-graduate students who are studying and working in the area of

  • development of supercomputer components;
  • development of system and application software for supercomputers;
  • development of GRID-technologies and GRID-services;
  • adjacent areas to the HPC industry;
  • consumption of supercomputer technologies.

For students and graduate students, the registration fee is not required, in addition, for the speakers, there may be additional benefits for participation: payment of accommodation, full or partial payment for travel. To get the benefits, you must contact the organizing committee of the conference in advance. In each case, the decision is taken separately.
