10,000+ computer scientists attended the largest supercomputing event in the world at the Colorado Convention Center in Downtown Denver organized by the sighpc of ACM and the IEEE CS (#SC13). Even with this record turnout, the organization did a flawless job! Congratulations! The highlights include a great keynote by Dr. Williams (D-Wave), an announcement by Intel to update their Xeon Phi 22 nm co-processor to a new 14 nm (bootable) version called Knights Landing. Moreover, NVIDIA announced the Kepler K40 graphics/co-processor. The many interesting talks about (big) data visualization was another highlight.
