HPC agenda 2021

Milan to host fifth HPC workshop

Until 1 March, we are looking for cutting-edge research for our upcoming High Performance Computing workshop. Be part of the programme and submit your work today.

Fifth HPC workshop announced

At EAGE, many of our events have a well-established history to them. Many of these are key conferences such as the Annual Conference & Exhibition, ECMOR or Near Surface Geoscience. Well-established workshop series include our Borehole Geophysics series and the High Performance Computing workshops. In September 2021, we will be bringing the fifth edition of the High Performance Computing workshop series to the city of fashion – Milan. HPC experts will have the chance to contribute to the workshop series for a three-day workshop on 6-8 September 2021.  We are currently accepting abstracts for this workshop.

High Performance Computing plays a leading role in our current energy business and will be of critical importance for a successful energy transition. HPC helps in seeking higher productivity, lowering costs and making better use of huge amounts of data through high-performance simulation and data analytics. 

Algorithms performing as fast as possible on the best available hardware have a direct impact on many of the decisions shaping our business – particularly true in this post COVID world. Achieving this goal, through the various forms of HPC, from Supercomputers on premise to elastic and versatile solutions on the cloud, is the underlying theme of the Fifth EAGE Workshop on High Performance Computing for Upstream: “Heterogeneous HPC: Challenges, Current and Future Trends”.

In order to facilitate a wide range of papers and presentations, the workshop will feature both oral & poster presentations, panel sessions and keynote deliveries by key people in the industry. 

Attendees will have the opportunity to combine their workshop experience with an opportunity unique to the city. Delegates will have a chance to visit the ENI’s Green Data Center, home of one of the most powerful supercomputers in the energy industry. For those unable to join in person, EAGE will hold the workshop in a hybrid format, allowing attendees to choose between an in-person participation or online presence. We are currently accepting papers up to 1 March 2021. For more information and further updates visit the event website.

EAGE, Computer Science and Energy

The upcoming HPC workshop fits within a wider range of EAGE activities related to machine learning, high performance computing and digitalization in the energy industry. In 2021 there will be a variety of related events worth considering. Make sure to have a look at our Calendar of Events and join the Artificial Intelligence Special Interest Community to remain up to speed on the various initiatives and projects around the globe.



Siddharth Misra


Prof Dr Siddharth Misra’s research focuses on improving subsurface characterization and prospect evaluation for the exploration of hydrocarbons, minerals and water resources.

His major contribution is in the theory of electromagnetic responses of geological formations to various charge polarization phenomena. The theory has enabled him to introduce a multi-frequency electromagnetic log-inversion technique to remove dielectric effects for improved estimation of hydrocarbon pore volume.
