For the third year in a row, the week-long High-Performance Computing (HPC) School for South-East Asian researchers kicked-off, this time in Bogor, Indonesia. The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) is set to continue to inspire researchers in the region, following the HPC School’s successful first two editions, organized by the European Union (EU) in collaboration with Japan and ASEAN.

The Indonesian National Research and Innovation Agency (BRIN) leads the organisation of the ASEAN HPC School 2023. More than 80 carefully selected participants address HPC applications in Life Sciences, Urgent Computing, Climate Science, and Computer Science in Bogor, Indonesia, from 11 to 16 December 2023.

The growing dependence on technology for addressing global challenges emphasizes the significance of enhancing HPC skills and knowledge within the ASEAN region. Joint efforts of the EU, Japan and ASEAN resulted in the 1st EU-ASEAN HPC School, held virtually in 2021, and the 2nd EU-ASEAN HPC School held at the Kasetsart University in Bangkok, Thailand, in 2022.

The ASEAN HPC School 2023 marks a new era with an ASEAN Member State organising and managing the school. This contributes to deepening digital connectivity, encouraging innovation, optimising resources and cost-sharing to overcome high entry barriers to HPC. At the same time, the school creates opportunities for growing talents in ASEAN as they meet leading international HPC experts, including the 2013 Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) Turing Laureate Dr Leslie Lamport.

H.E. Sujiro Seam, Ambassador of the European Union to ASEAN explained: “The HPC schools expose exceptional South-East Asian researchers, primarily at the postgraduate level, to a hands-on curriculum taught by international luminaries in HPC technology from Japan, Europe, South-East Asia and beyond.” He added: “The EU recognises the growing importance of HPC, and is making significant investments in HPC infrastructure through the European High Performance Computing Joint Undertaking – EuroHPC JU.”

The EU has supported the 2021, 2022 and 2023 HPC schools through the Enhanced Regional EU-ASEAN Dialogue Instrument (E-READI).
