HiDALGO provides several services that are available through the the HiDALGO portal: customer support, a public forum, matchmaking, a public data management system, co-design experiments, and customer training.
Last Wednesday, the HiDALGO mid-term project review took place. Due to the COVID-19 situation, this time round the review was organised as a remote call. It was a long day with many valuable questions from the reviewers who provided a list of fair and important recommendations. The overall feedback was very positive.
Researchers from the HiDALGO project have forecast how localised measures in London, like closing certain shops or quarantining residents in particular buildings, may impact the coronavirus spread. Read more here!
HiDALGO offers the possibility of associate partnership. The purpose is to foster collaboration between HiDALGO and other CoEs, projects, companies, or research institutes and make the collaboration visible.
This option includes:
HiDALGO assembles a highly interdisciplinary team for its ambitious project work. Integration is fostered through regular sessions at (online) project meetings. A sub-task implements internal project surveys to identify in which places integration might still be improved.
HiDALGO participated in an online conference on 11-12 June 2020 on “Multiscale Modelling, Uncertainty Quantification and the Reliability of Computer Simulations”, with a total of five talks spanning all the pilot application domains. The conference was attended by more than 250 people, and is a combination of three events that were due to take place at the SIAM Conference on Uncertainty Quantification (UQ20) and the International Conference on Computational Science (ICCS) 2020, but were cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
On June 22, HiDALGO was presented on a project poster session at ISC'2020 conference. Out of 25 projects selected for this session, HiDALGO was the only one directly related to the policy making and simulation of global challenges. Each project poster was supplemented with pre-recorded 5 minutes introductory video. During the session, attendees were able to watch these videos and ask questions to the poster presenters.
Sergiy Gogolenko, Technical Coordinator of HiDALGO, will give a presentation at ISC High Performance 2020 on June 23, one of the leading conferences for High-Performance Computing in the world. In his talk, entitled "HiDALGO: HPC and Big Data Technologies for Global Challenges", he will present the most recent advances and results in our project. In particular, he will focus on the simulation of air pollution in urban environments; see attached image about the results of this simulation with respect to the city of Stuttgart.
