Emerging technologies and new application areas for high performance computing.
On wednesday, June 24, the major market players and outstanding experts will be involved in workshops focusing on emerging technologies and new areas of application for HPC.
NUMERICAL TECHNOLOGIES FOR PLANT INDUSTRY
Chaired by Christian SAGUEZ, CYBELETECH with the participation of Pierre CELLIER and Bruno ANDRIEUX, INRA - Jean Michel GALLIER, TRANSON - Kun-Mean HOU, ISIMA - Jean François ROUS, Groupe AVRIL - Denis WOUTERS, CYBELETECH
Plant Industry faces major issues in terms of production, quality and respect of environmental requirements. In this context, numerical technologies bring novative methods and tools, in particular model and simulation associated to methods for big data analysis. Using those technologies enable the development of efficient decision aid softwares, for every step of the plant production lifecycle. The goal of this workshop is to review those technologies associated to all the data of the crops lifecycle (acquisition, treatment and analysis, data driven crop systems). Read more >>>

New! The 2015 Digital Simulation Awards
The Digital Simulation Awards, jointly organised by “Usine Nouvelle” magazine and TERATEC, will, for the very first time, be awarded to the champions of the digital simulation world, at the occasion of TERATEC's tenth anniversary.
During the ceremony held at TERATEC Forum on 23 June 2015, five Awards will be granted by a jury of top professionals in recognition of the winners' achievements. The event is open to any company working in the fields of Digital Simulation and High Performance Computing.
Startup Award: Awarded to a startup founded within the last five years and which has distinguished itself by its innovative work in computing. The Best Computing Startup of the Year will be a provider of tools or services in the areas of digital simulation or Big Data analysis, and which has created added value or jobs. The ability to demonstrate an impact on the development of existing business models or on cost reduction will be a plus.
SME Award: Awarded to an SME-SMI that has successfully and efficiently implemented digital computing technology (simulation, data analysis or Big Data) and has changed the processes it uses to develop new products and services, or to produce, maintain or implement forward-planning across the entire life cycle. The winner must demonstrate through its results (in terms of time, productivity and profitability, etc.) that these new tools have enabled it to make real progress in its process management.
Innovation Award: Awarded for a product, technology or service developed by a company, and which breaks new ground in digital simulation or data analysis. The Award for the Year's Best Innovation in Computing may thus be awarded for any stage in the life cycle of an industrial project, from research through production, in-service maintenance and product recycling. Criteria taken into account to choose the winning entry include the impact on a company's competitiveness and sustainable development.
Collaboration Award (large company and SME) : Awarded to a collaborative project between a large company and an SME (or group of partners) which have worked on a project related to digital computing, at the stage of research, development or deployment. The two partners must demonstrate the exemplary nature of their collaboration in terms of innovation, protecting the interests of both parties (contracts, industrial property) and transferring results to industry.
- Jury's Prize: Awarded to one of the entrants, in any category, for the exemplary nature of a project in terms of innovation and development of the use of digital computing by an SME.
