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.

Due to Covid19 related safety measures, our General Assembly is being held
online. From May 18 to May 20 the consortium is discussing the most recent
advancements of the project in a number of teleconferences.

The recent Covid-19 outbreak has had a tremendous impact on the world, and
many countries are struggling to help incoming patients and at the same time,
rapidly implement new public health measures such as lock downs.

Many of these decisions are guided by the outcomes of so-called SEIR
(susceptible-exposed-infectious-recovered) models that operate on a national
level. Within HiDALGO, we are using our agent-based modelling expertise to
develop the Flu And Coronavirus Simulator (FACS), an agent-based model that

The HiDALGO project has several contributions at major HPC and computational science events this year. Besides several talks at ICCS 2020, it has a paper at the same conference with the title "Accurate Simulation of Global Challenges on Data Centers Infrastructures via Coupling of Models and Data Sources". In this paper, we explore ways to bridge the gap between traditional high performance computing (HPC) and data-centric computation in order to provide efficient technological solutions in the domain of Global Challenges (GC).

Due to Covid19 related safety measures, the technical meeting is being held online. From April 1 to April 3 the consortium is discussing the most recent advancements of the project in a number of teleconferences.
