One of the overall goals of the RISC2 project is the White Paper on HPC Research, Development, and Innovation (RDI) in Latin America, which sets the basis for the road-mapping activity carried out by the RISC2 project.
The RISC2 main result will be a cooperation roadmap targeting policymakers, the scientific and industrial communities, identifying key application areas, HPC infrastructure and policy requirements, and exploring ways for the activities established during the project to last beyond its lifetime.
This document is organized in 3 sections. The first one introduces this report, describing precedents, objectives, and methodological approach, and shares an overview of the strategic importance of HPC, computational and data sciences. The second section addresses the Latin American HPC landscape by representing an overview of the HPC activity in the region and then focuses on the targeted country though seven national reports. The last section advances on recommendations for Latin America to encourage sustainability in RDI in HPC and strengthen bi-regional collaborations.
