TimeWednesday, 17 November 202111:15am - 12pm CST
DescriptionHiPEAC was founded in 2004 with the goal of bringing together a dozen of key European institutions and companies in High Performance Computing, and let them network, collaborate, and steer the future of High Performance Computing in Europe. Over the years, HiPEAC grew from a dozen of institutions and companies to almost 500, integrating over 2300 active researchers in computing. HiPEAC has become a strong brand in networking, roadmapping and community building. This did not happen overnight. We step-by-step learned how to create value for the community. We failed a number of times and learned from our mistakes.
This talk will give an overview of the history of HiPEAC, its business model, its key success factors, and its future in Europe. It will explain how HiPEAC is organized to deliver high quality events and services to the community, the secret of its success. We will also discuss HiPEAC’s strengths, weaknesses, challenges and opportunities for the future. This talk will explain what it takes to build a vibrant community with loyal members and the lessons learned in the process.
