Time: 1.30PM – 7PM
Venue: Suntec Singapore Convention and Exhibition Centre, Level 3



Cybersecurity for High-Performance Computing (HPC) is an important topic as HPC infrastructure will be the processing
workhorse for Smart Nation computational workloads such as modeling and simulation and digital twins.
Traditional HPC infrastructure is set up differently from enterprise servers and thus, it is important that the
cybersecurity community understands Supercomputing, Quantum-computing and AI and the appropriate security measures. 
This will be aligned with the theme of this year’s SupercomputingAsia 2020 which is “HPC Empowering Intelligent Cities”.
As such, the HPC Cybersecurity workshop will address such topics which are both current and upcoming.
We are privileged to have thought leaders in Cybersecurity to join us for this half-day afternoon session and provide their insights.
The inaugural HPC Cybersecurity Workshop is organised by the Centre for Strategic Cyberspace + International Studies (CSCIS)
and the National Supercomputing Centre Singapore, and colocated with the SCA2020.
