The EVEREST project presented at the EBDVF 2022
The flagship event of the European Big Data Value and Data-Driven AI Research and Innovation community took place from 21-23 November 2022 in Prague, Czech Republic with a central theme “At the Heart of the Ecosystem for Data and AI”. Being held on-site since 2019, this event offered 46 sessions with nearly 300 speakers creating a fruitful environment to celebrate achievements, form new collaborations and plan directions for data-driven innovation.
The European Big Data Value Forum (EBDVF 2022) was organised under the auspices of the Czech European Council presidency by the Big Data Value Association (BDVA) and our partner IT4Innovations as one of the co-organisers. The IT4Innovations´ CEO Vít Vondrák gave one of the opening speeches and Kateřina Slaninová from IT4Innovations led the session “HPC, data and AI joining forces to support the main challenges of the new digital era” joined by famous names including Anders Dam Jensen, Vít Vondrák, Jean-Pierre Panziera, Laure Le Bars, Hahn Thomas and Josef Šivic who discussed the role of European High-Performance Computing Joint Undertaking in the joint effort with big data and AI community supporting main European challenges by providing the most powerful computing and data infrastructure in Europe.
The EVEREST project was given a space to shine at the EBDVF 2022 and, it prepared a session “EVEREST SDK: High-Performance, Distributed, Reconfigurable and Heterogeneous Platforms for Extreme-Scale Data Analytics” which took place on 23 November 2022. Kateřina Slaninová moderated this session which introduced the EVEREST System Development Kit (SDK) to the Big Data community and Christian Pilato, Antonella Galizia, Riccardo Cevasco, Radim Cmar gave their presentations which explained the progress of the project in the last year.
The EBDVF 2022 hosted over 400 participants from the European community for research and innovation in big data and artificial intelligence and the planning of the EBDVF 2023 is in full swing with Valencia being the next destination.

Introduction of the EVEREST project at SC22
The biggest high-performance computing event of the last year, Supercomputing Conference 2022, provided an opportunity for scientists, supercomputing centres, companies, and HPC enthusiasts to meet again. The main theme for SC22 was „HPC Accelerates“.
The Supercomputing Conference took place from 13 to 18 November 2022, and it covered high-performance computing, networking, storage, and analysis. The international conference welcomed participants at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas, USA, but most sessions were synchronously live-streamed. The EVEREST project and its activities were promoted via the booth of IT4Innovations National Supercomputing Center. The conference-goers had an opportunity to watch our presentation, look at our leaflet, and grab the EVEREST stickers or beer coasters.
The EVEREST project was also promoted by the EVEREST poster “Traffic Flow Optimization in Smart Cities: Leveraging HPC Resources for Automatic Design Space Exploration” which was presented by Martin Šurkovský, Kateřina Slaninová, and Jan Martinovič. They explained the aim of the EVEREST project to the attendees and answered all curious questions asked by the visitors of the poster section.
The Supercomputing Conference always includes the announcement of the latest TOP500, Green500, and HPCG lists. The first place remains to the Frontier supercomputer, which is the first supercomputer ever to break the magic 1 exaflop level. The second place belongs to the Fugaku supercomputer and the third in the ranking is LUMI supercomputer.
The SC22 featured 361 exhibit booths on the show floor and welcomed in total 11,830 high-performance computing professionals. We look forward to meeting many of them at the next Supercomputing Conference, which will be held in Denver, USA, from 12 to 17 November 2023.
