At insideHPC, are very pleased to publish the Print ‘n Fly Guide to SC16 in Salt Lake City. We designed this Guide to be an in-flight magazine custom tailored for your journey to SC16 — the world’s largest gathering of high performance computing professionals.
Inside this guide you will find technical features on supercomputing, HPC interconnects, and the latest developments on the road to exascale. It also has great recommendations on food, entertainment, and transportation in SLC.
To set the stage, the Guide features an interview with Michael Kagan on What’s Next for HPC. We’ve also included a special preview of the conference itself with SC16 General Chair John West.
As one of America’s most under-rated cities, SLC has great food and entertainment, so we’ve also included a listing of the very best restaurants and bars to meet with your friends and colleagues.
As far as transportation goes, SLC has gone through remarkable changes since we last visited at SC12. As you’ll learn in the Print ‘n Fly Guide to SC16 in Salt Lake City, a new light rail system will get you from the airport and all about town. At the same time, we’ll give you great tips to get around the new, unregulated taxi fares that could leave you feeling frustrated.
