"Shaping Europe's Digital Future - High Performance Computing for Extreme Scale Scientific and Industrial Applications" is an event on High Performance Computing co-organised by the Bulgarian Presidency of the Council of the European Union and the European Commission. It will take place on 19 April 2018 at the National Palace of Culture, Sofia, Bulgaria.

Gathering more than 250 scientists and industrialists as well as representatives of ministries from the South and Eastern Europe, the event aims to raise awareness on the role of High Performance Computing (HPC) to transform Europe's digital future by providing solutions to a wide range of societal, scientific, and industrial challenges. Panellists will discuss the role of HPC in personalised medicine and in understanding the human brain and the link of HPC with other emerging computing paradigms, such as quantum computing.

The event will also address how the proposal of the European Commission on the EuroHPC Joint Undertaking will impact the European scientific, economic and societal developments, including digital skills, focusing on the wider area of South and Eastern Europe.

A Bulgarian high-level government representative, together with Mariya Gabriel, Commissioner for Digital Economy and Society, and Thierry Breton, CEO Atos will open this one-day event.

Registration is open, free of charge and mandatory. Registration to this event will open soon on the Bulgarian Presidency website.
