ISC 2022: HPC Experts Share Thoughts on Making the Most of Next Week’s Conference

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

ISC 2022, one of the biggest HPC confabs of the year, will be an in-person event (along with virtual streming) for the first time since 2019. Getting the most of the conference in Hamburg calls for good time management and good judgment. As an assist to both in-person and virtual attendees we spoke with three industry thought leaders – Katie Antypas of NERSC, Earl Joseph of Hyperion Research and Addison Snell of Intersect360 Research – about conference events, keynotes and potential news developments they think will be worthy of your attention.

We discuss key technologies that will be covered by sessions and BOFs; significant HPC market trends (HPC software, cloud HPC, digital twins and the need for greater diversity in HPC, for example); the explosion of HPC+AI; the coming of exascale supercomputing; potential changes to be announced next week to the TOP500 list of the world’s most powerful supercomputers, and the happiness felt by the HPC community at meeting together, in person, again.

We hope you find the conversation helpful.


  1. Great lead up to ISC’22. Looking forward to seeing everyone!
