EuroHPC Summit Week (EHPCSW) is an annual event gathers the main technology suppliers and HPC infrastructures to scientific and industrial HPC users in Europe. This year´s edition took place on 22-26 March 2021.

ChEESE participated in EHPCSW 2021 by organising the European Urgent Computing Workshop, which took place on 24 March 2021. Five keynote speakers from different institutions were invited to speak about topics ranging from atmospheric radiological dispersion, urgent tsunami computation, seismic hazard assessment, volcanic ash forecast and advanced prediction of weather extremes. The workshop ended with a panel discussion involving members of ChEESE, VESTEC, LEXIS and ESiWACE, projects that work on urgent computing topics.
