Abstract:   The panel attempts to explore how supercomputing in Asia, especially involving centers, can effectively collaborate with a real organizational structure, just as there is an international governmental collaboration structure such as ASEAN. Europe has such an organization, PRACE, which is both an organizational as well as funding mechanism for the top supercomputing centers in EU to proactively and concretely collaborate. In Asia, in many cases there are similar organizational structures within each country, such as China Grid as well as HPCI (High Performance Computing Infrastructure) in Japan. Would it be beneficial to seek a similar collaboration mechanism between the major supercomputer centers in Asia, and if so, what would be the tangible subject matter of collaborations, how do we fund it, what would be the organizational structure, etc.
