The purpose of this workshop is to bring researchers from across Europe together to discuss a proposal to Horizon2020 for a Centre of Excellence for Computing Applications. The workshop has been initiated by the lattice field theory community and is intended to facilitate partnership with users in other application areas that are extreme in terms of their physics and computational requirements, with HPC technology providers and with industry end-users. A draft outline of the Centre, including a list of work packages, is available under Resources. This seeks suggestions for, and contributions to work packages. Also included is a list of discussion items that have been proposed in response to the outline. Attendees are invited to give a talk about their proposed contribution to the Centre of Excellence. Please provide a title and abstract when you register. Lunch and refreshments will be provided. We regret that we cannot provide any financial support.
