The comprehensive program consists of half and full-day tutorials, a four-day conference track, two-day industry tracks, and three-day exhibition featuring dynamic exhibits from leading HPC companies and research organizations. A number of workshops and satellite events will also complement this year’s program.
Attendees will be able to tailor their registration to meet their interests and schedule, thanks to a flexible passport and pricing system. Participants can register for either the entire program, selected events, or just specific days.
ISC’13, the 28th conference in the series, is expected to draw 2,500 attendees from academia, research institutions and industry around the world. An estimated 170 leading organizations will showcase their products and research at the ISC exhibition.
Here are the ISC’13 highlights at a glance:
1. State of the Art in HPC Applications
2. Challenges for HPC
3. Big Data and HPC
4. A Two-Day Industry Track
5. Interconnects and Topologies for HPC Systems
6. HPC Cloud
7. Chat: The “Missing Middle”
9. Distinguished Speakers Series
Look into your travel and stay early
If you fly with any of the Star Alliance members, you are eligible for a discount of up to 20 percent for yourself and your companion. Our hotel booking partner, KIT, offers accommodations in selected price categories.
Every year ISC attracts a larger crowd than the previous year, drawing those interested in gaining new insights into their areas of interests in HPC, be it various applications, engineering, advancement of HPC and other related technologies, or simply to meet new people to collaborate and do business.
ISC is the world’s oldest and the most significant high-performance computing conference and exhibition in Europe for the global HPC community. It offers an exceptional 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 conference and industry tracks including tutorials, workshops, panels, TOP500 announcement, research paper sessions, birds-of-a-feather (BoF) sessions, research poster session, student cluster competition, exhibitor forums, and the popular vendor showdown (in a new format, featuring leaders from industry), as well as a number of satellite events organized by our partners and sponsors in conjunction with ISC’13. The conference has experienced tremendous growth over the last few years, with an estimated 2,500 participants from around the world are expected to convene in Leipzig, June 16 – 20.
ISC’13 is open to IT-decision makers, scientists, researchers, members of the HPC global community and other interested parties. The ISC exhibition allows analysts, end-user 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 academicians to see and learn firsthand about new products, applications and technological advances in the supercomputing industry today.
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.
In this week's hand-picked assortment, researchers explore the path to more energy-efficient cloud datacenters, investigate new frameworks and runtime environments that are compatible with Windows Azure, and design a uniﬁed programming model for diverse data-intensive cloud computing paradigms.
