High-performance and Disruptive Computing in Remote Sensing (HDCRS)
The mission of HDCRSThe HDCRS working group is part of the IEEE GRSS Earth Science Informatics (ESI) Technical Committee. The main objective of HDCRS is to connect a community of interdisciplinary researchers in remote sensing who are specialized on high-performance and distributed computing, quantum computing and parallel programming models with specialized hardware accelerators. HDCRS disseminates information and knowledge through educational events, special sessions and tutorials at conferences and publication activities. The group welcomes anyone interested from academia and industry to contribute to our mission.
Focus on three major fields
Supercomputing and Distributed Computing
Supercomputing is the processing of complex or data-intensive problems with a vast number of highly interconnected compute nodes that work in parallel (i.e., HPC). Distributed computing uses multiple compute resources not necessarily located in close proximity to one another but connected via Internet or other networks (e.g., cloud computing).
