Jennifer Chayes from Microsoft Research to Keynote ISC 2017

Today ISC 2017 announced that data scientist, Prof. Dr. Jennifer Tour Chayes from Microsoft Research will give the opening keynote at the conference. “I’ll discuss in some detail two particular applications: the very efficient machine learning algorithms for doing collaborative filtering on massive sparse networks of users and products, like the Netflix network; and the inference algorithms on cancer genomic data to suggest possible drug targets for certain kinds of cancer,” explains Chayes.

ISC 2017 Distinguished Talks to Focus on Data Analytics in Manufacturing & Science

Today ISC 2017 announced that it’s Distinguished Talk series will focus on Data Analytics in manufacturing and scientific applications. One of the Distinguished Talks will be given by Dr. Sabine Jeschke from the Cybernetics Lab at the RWTH Aachen University on the topic of, “Robots in Crowds – Robots and Clouds.” Jeschke’s presentation will be followed by one from physicist Kerstin Tackmann, from the German Electron Synchrotron (DESY) research center, who will discuss big data and machine learning techniques used for the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider.

Dr. Peter Bauer from ECMWF to Keynote ISC 2017

Today ISC 2017 announced that their Tuesday keynote will be delivered by Dr. Peter Bauer from the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF). As Deputy Director of the Research Department Center at ECMWF, Dr. Bauer will discuss the computing and data challenges, as well as the current avenues the weather and climate prediction community is taking in preparing for the new computing era.

Call for Papers: Workshop on HPC in a post Moore’s Law World

“The impending end of traditional MOSFET scaling has sparked research into preserving HPC performance improvements through alternative computational models. To better shape our strategy, we need to understand where each technology is headed and where it will be in a span of 20 years. This workshop brings together experts who develop or use promising technologies to present the state of their work, and spark a discussion on the promise and detriments of each approach.”

Submission Deadlines for ISC 2017 are Fast Approaching

Are you planning for ISC 2017? The deadlines for submissions are fast approaching. The conference takes place June 18 – 22, 2017 in Frankfurt, Germany. “Participation in these sessions and programs will help enrich your experience at the conference, not to mention provide exposure for your work to some of the most discerning HPC practitioners and business people in the industry. We also want to remind you that it’s the active participation of the community that helps make ISC High Performance such a worthwhile event for all involved.”

ISC 2017 and PASC17 Conferences Scheduled Back-to-Back

Today the ISC 2017 and the PASC17 announced that these two key events in the European HPC ecosystem have been scheduled back to back in June. “ISC 2017, which will be held from June 18 to 22 in Frankfurt, Germany, is expected to attract over 3000 attendees, including top managers, researchers, engineers, architects and sales and marketing staff from business and public institutions. Following ISC 2017, researchers from academia, national labs and industry will gather in Lugano, Switzerland, for PASC17, an interdisciplinary conference in HPC that brings together domain science, applied mathematics and computer science.”

12 Teams to Compete in ISC 2017 Student Cluster Competition

“The competition is an opportunity to showcase the world’s brightest computer science students’ expertise in a friendly, yet spirited competition,” said Martin Meuer, managing director of the ISC Group. “We are very pleased to host these 12 compelling university teams from around the world. We look forward to this very engaging competition and wish the teams good luck.”

Video: PASC17 Conference Seeks Papers, Minisymposia, and Posters

In this video, Jeff Hollingsworth from SIGHPC and Michele De Lorenzi from CSCS invite you to submit papers, minisymposia proposals and posters to the PASC17 Conference, an interdisciplinary conference in HPC that brings together domain science, applied mathematics and computer science. PASC17 will be held June 26-28, 2017 in Lugano, Switzerland.

ISC 2016 Workshop Papers Available as Free Download

Workshop Papers from ISC 2016 are now available as a free download. “The 21 workshops were held on June 26, 2016 at the Frankfurt Marriott Hotel with over 600 registered attendees, about 170 presentations, and over a dozen panel discussions. These workshops provided a focused, in-depth platform with presentations, discussions, and interaction on topics related to all aspects of research, development, and application of large-scale, high-performance experimental and commercial systems.”

Call for Participation: ISC 2017 in Frankfurt

“ISC High Performance 2017 is now open to a number of submission opportunities. Whether your interest lies in research posters, project posters, birds-of-a-feather (BoF) sessions or the PhD forum, ISC is welcoming proposals from all members of the high performance computing community. ISC High Performance is looking forward to continuing its tradition as the largest HPC conference and exhibition in Europe. It will be attended by over 3,000 academicians, industry leaders and end users from around the world. The ISC exhibition annually attracts around 150 organizations, including supercomputing, storage and network vendors, as well as universities, research centers, laboratories and international projects.”
