Arm Research Summit 2018

September 17, 2018 to September 19, 2018

The Arm Research Summit is back, with a multi-track three-day program. Attend and hear from expert researchers discussing the latest developments, future trends and disruptive technologies affecting our industry, and the world surrounding it.

Mont-Blanc will be present at the Arm Research Summit, with our own workshop, on 18 September, 14:00-15:30, in the Plenary Room in the Crausaz Wordsworth Building. Here is the programme:

Workshop: Highlights of the Mont-Blanc 3 project results

The Mont-Blanc workshop will present the main results obtained as part of the Mont-Blanc 3 project, with the possibility of exchanging with the project team.

Since 2011, the Mont-Blanc project has been a pioneer in exploring and promoting the use of Arm-based chips for HPC computing. The third phase, started in October 2015 and ending by end of 2018, aims to co-design a new high-end HPC platform, and prepare its market adoption.
