The 26th International Supercomputing Conference is offering 11 educational tutorials and two brand new workshops – HPC in Asia and HPC Mid Market on Sunday, June 19 as a prelude to the main conference.
The five-day conference and trade fair will be held June 19 – 23, 2011, at the Congress Center Hamburg, Germany, bringing together around 2,000 IT managers, researchers and scientists to exchange knowledge and ideas, foster contacts and do business. The complete ISC’11 program comprises educational tutorial sessions, workshops, a conference and an exhibition consisting of 150 industrial and research exhibits. All conference proceedings are conducted in English.
The conference will kick off on Sunday, June 19, with three full-day and eight half-day tutorials on a broad range of application topics. The tutorials are led by expert speakers with hands-on experience in HPC, and the topics cover diverse areas of interest, e.g., architectures, algorithms and analysis, large-scale simulations, storage and data, as well as developing areas like Exascale computing, Clouds and CUDA. All 11 tutorials will be held in parallel sessions and the registration fee allows participants to visit all the sessions. More information is available here.
HPC in Asia Workshop
Last November, Asia astonished the global HPC community by deploying three of the five fastest HPC installations worldwide. To give ISC’11 attendees insight into these growing markets, ISC has organized a full-day HPC in Asia Workshop and invited experts from the most well-known HPC centers in China, Japan, Korea, Taiwan and Singapore to talk about the state-of-the-art developments in their regions. Among others, they will discuss current activities and projects in Asia in the “HPC Applications in Asia” and “Ultra Large Scale Systems in Asia” sessions. The day will end with a science tour of the German Climate Center (DKRZ) for all participants. Click here to view full program.
Mid Market HPC Workshop
Also held on Sunday June 19, the workshop on Mid Market HPC will provide specialized users with an overview of the available HPC solutions for small- and medium-sized enterprises, and also facilitate a dialogue between users, technology companies, hardware vendors, ISV’s and service providers.
