ISC 2023: HPC Experts’ Thoughts on Making the Most of the Conference

ISC 2023, one of the biggest supercomputing confabs of the year, will be held May 21-25 in Hamburg, and for those days the conference will be the place to be in HPC. If last year’s ISC marked a big step in coming out from under the pandemic shadow, let’s hope this year’s event leaves it completely behind us.
