In ICT We Trust 2018

28-29 June 2018, Graz, Austria

The conference "In ICT we trust?" follows a broad, non-reductive conception of cyber security which does not reduce the problem to a mere technical question. Rather, the emphasis is on ethical implications and sociocultural perceptions of digital environments. The establishment and general uptake of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in European societies is not just a question of functionality, (technical) security and usability.

European Steel: The Wind of Change, Brussels Seminar

31 January 2018, Brussels

More than 100 high-level stakeholders and decision-makers discussed the questions of Steel in Europe at a seminar organised by the European Commission, Directorate General for Research & Innovation, on 31 January 2018 in Brussels.

After a political introduction by representatives from the European Parliament and the European Commission, the seminar shed light on the opportunities offered by RFCS, the Research Fund for Coal and Steel, Horizon 2020 and the Innovation Fund. With the insights from industrial and research stakeholders, the seminar focused on ‘Energy in future steelmaking’ and ‘Steel in the energy market applications’. It was concluded by a session making the synthesis on the different technological paths towards cleaner, more efficient and competitive European steelmaking. These proposals were discussed by a roundtable of European and national policy-makers that addressed issues related to industrial policy, R&I and the EU multi-annual financial perspectives. 

The seminar provided a good opportunity to explore the potential for an ambitious European joint initiative on ‘Greening European steel’ with the participation of Commission representatives from DG RTD, DG CLIMA, DG ENER and DG GROW.

The conclusions of this Seminar will feed the Industry Days of 22 and 23 February 2018.

A ‘Steel and Society’ action highlighted the questions of skills needed in the steel sector. 

For more information, contact Dr Domenico Rossetti di Valdalberο, Deputy Head of Unit ‘Coal and Steel’ in DG RTD.

MaX Conference on the Materials Design Ecosystem at the Exascale

29-31 January 2018, Trieste, Italy

MaX Conference on the Materials Design Ecosystem at the Exascale: High-Performance and High-Throughput Computing. ICTP, Trieste (IT) 29-31/01/2018.

Materials are crucial to scientific and technological advances and industrial competitiveness, and to tackle key societal challenges — from energy and environment to healthcare, information and communications, manufacturing, safety and transportation. Computational science, with the current accuracy and predictive power, can play a very relevant role in this respect by boosting materials design and discovery.

In this scenario, scientific objectives and computational technological perspectives are nowadays more intertwined than ever. The MaX Centre (Materials Design at the Exascale), one of the nine Centres of Excellence for computing applications funded by the EU since 2015, has been acting along two core lines, namely, high-performance computing (HPC), in view of the transition to exascale architecture, and high-throughput computing (HTC), with the final aim of building a materials modelling ecosystem.

The MaX Centre takes the opportunity of its general conference to share with the scientific community its current efforts and future perspectives, as well as to underline the state of the art of both the scientific and the technological innovation which can disruptively impact on material discovery in the next decade. The general focus of the Conference is on scientific advances in computational materials research, as well as future developments in the exascale perspective.

The program will include sessions with invited speakers only, on topics including but not limited to: - Advances in high performance computing for materials science - New avenues from data analytics / AI in materials science - High throughput computing for materials discovery - Trends in high performance computing and codesign - New algorithms for first principles simulations.
