Unpacking in Hamburg for this week’s ISC? Don’t miss Michael Feldman’s thoughts about what not to miss at this year’s conference

As I get ready to head to Hamburg for the 24th running of the International Supercomputing Conference, I’m taking a last look at the conference agenda to make sure I don’t miss any interesting bits. Fortunately the conference maintains a plenary track of sessions, but there are other activities — BoF sessions, exhibitions, poster sessions, and the obligatory networking and meetings — taking place in parallel, so some planning is mandatory. With that in mind, I thought I’d point to the some of the highlights of the four-day supercomputing extravaganza.

And if you are going this year, remember that most of us aren’t going to get to go (for one thing, the lines at the bratwurst stands would be crazy long if we all showed up, and no one wants that). We’d love to share your thoughts on what you saw, heard, learned, or ate at this year’s conference. Drop us a note and we’ll share your experiences with insideHPC’s readers.
