By registering now, ISC’11 attendees can save 25 percent off the onsite registration rates at the Congress Center Hamburg.
Combine this discount with the improvements and additions to this year’s program and there is even more incentive for planning now to attend ISC’11. The comprehensive program consists of full- and half-day tutorials, the HPC in Asia Workshop, the Mid Market HPC Workshop, a 4-day conference and 3-day exhibition featuring dynamic exhibits from 150 leading HPC companies and research organizations.
And attendees can tailor their registration to meet their interests and schedule, thanks to a flexible pricing system that allows participants to register for the entire program, or just select specific days or events to attend. For more information about fees and registrations,click here.
To help attendees make the best use of their investment in ISC, the conference team is introducing a new agenda planning app. Learn more about this new tool.
“We realize that members of the HPC community have a number of conferences to choose from, so we have worked hard to ensure that ISC’11 provides the highest possible value,” said Martin Meuer, ISC’s Executive Director. “The ISC’11 conference program is definitely the most illustrious in the 26-year history of the International Supercomputing Conference, featuring internationally known expert discussing topics ranging from using supercomputers to simulate the human brain to the European desire to be technologically independent and capable of exascale computing, to interesting sessions on GPUs, Clouds, and HPC and Carbon Zero 2020.”
For ISC’11, on Sunday, June 19, there will be Workshops and Tutorials designed to meet specific interests. The sessions, which require separate registration, are:
· Tutorials: Three full-day and eight half-day tutorials will be offered. View the Tutorial program.
· Workshop on Mid Market HPC – Challenges & Opportunities for Small & Medium Enterprises. Read more.
· Workshop on HPC in Asia, providing the latest developments in the region now home to three of the top five supercomputers on the TOP500 list.

Now in its 26th year, ISC is the world’s oldest and one of the most important conferences for the HPC community, offering a strong five-day technical program with a wide range of expert speakers and exhibits from leading research centers and vendors. A number of events complement the technical program, including Tutorials, research paper sessions, Birds of a Feather (BoF) Sessions, Research Poster Session, Exhibitor and Start-up Forums and the popular "Hot Seat Sessions" featuring leaders from industry and research centers. The conference has experienced tremendous growth over the last few years, with an estimated 2,000 participants from around the world expected to convene in Hamburg, June 19 – June 23.
ISC’11 is open to IT-decision makers, scientists, members of the HPC global community and other interested parties. The ISC exhibition allows analysts, decision-makers from the automotive, defense, aeronautical, gas & oil, banking and other industries; solution providers, data storage suppliers, distributors, hardware and software manufacturers, the media, scientists and universities to see and learn firsthand about new products, applications and technological advances in the supercomputing industry today.

Large-scale, worldwide scientific initiatives rely on some cloud-based system to both coordinate efforts and manage computational efforts at peak times that cannot be contained within the combined in-house HPC resources. Last week at Google I/O, Brookhaven National Lab’s Sergey Panitkin discussed the role of the Google Compute Engine in providing computational support to ATLAS, a detector of high-energy particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
Frank Ding, engineering analysis & technical computing manager at Simpson Strong-Tie, discussed the advantages of utilizing the cloud for occasional scientific computing, identified the obstacles to doing so, and proposed workarounds to some of those obstacles.
The private industry least likely to adopt public cloud services for data storage are financial institutions. Holding the most sensitive and heavily-regulated of data types, personal financial information, banks and similar institutions are mostly moving towards private cloud services – and doing so at great cost.
