ISC announced [PDF] this week that they’ve set an advance registration record, signalling that for HPC travellers anyway the economy is looking up
As of April 30, exactly a month before the kick-off of ISC’10, the registration was 28 percent higher compared to the same time last year, thus setting a brand new record for this year’s global supercomputing event.
Not only is attendance ahead of last year’s record pace, but the exhibition has also seen a 23.5 percent increase in exhibitors. 147 of the world’s leading HPC manufacturers, vendors, HPC start-ups and research institutions have already secured exhibition space for ISC’10, compared to 119 exhibitors in 2009. These increases correspond to analysts’ prediction that the HPC market will resume growth by 5 to 7 percent in mid- 2010.
ISC will be held from May 30 to June 3, in Hamburg, Germany.
