ISC 2017 IS OPEN FOR REGISTRATION
FRANKFURT, Germany, 07.03.2017 – Early registration at reduced rates is now open for ISC High Performance, the largest high performance computing forum in Europe. By registering between now and May 10 for the full conference pass, attendees from commercial sectors and academia can save over 45 percent off the onsite registration rates.
The ISC High Performance conference and exhibition will be held from June 18 - 22 at Messe Frankfurt, and the event expects over 3,000 attendees.
The conference will kick off on Sunday, June 18, with half-day and full-day tutorials. This year the organizers received a record-breaking number of tutorial proposals, which will be announced on the event website later this month. The three-day general track will kick off on Monday, June 19, and be held through Wednesday, June 21. The track includes many unique sessions. Of individual significance are the three keynotes and five distinguished talks from experts on topics such as data networks, data analytics, weather prediction, current developments and future trends, and the scientific purposes of Sunway TaihuLight – the fastest supercomputer in the world.
New this year, ISC offers two special full-day programs that have a great appeal to the industrial and deep learning user communities. The first in the row is the Industrial Day on Tuesday, June 20, which specifically addresses challenges in the industrial manufacturing, transport and logistics sectors. Branching into deep learning on the next day, technical talks from academic and industry leaders will give the Deep Learning Day attendees up-to-date insights on the rapid development in this area and also demonstrate how deep learning can be enabled with HPC technology, as well as how the demands of deep learning will affect current and future HPC infrastructure.
Complementing the general track, this year’s research track will host the following sessions: the Research Paper, Research Poster and Project Poster sessions, as well as the PhD Forum. Various topical and interest-specific Birds-of-a-Feather sessions, the fast-paced Vendor Showdown and Exhibitor Forums will again take place this year. The Hans Meuer Award as well as the Gauss Award await the best research papers in 2017. The conference will conclude on Thursday, June 22 with half-day and full-day workshops. All pre-submitted workshops are now published on the website.
The ISC exhibition, a three-day event that runs from Monday, June 19, through Wednesday, June 21, will feature about 150 exhibits from leading HPC companies and research organizations. The exciting Student Cluster Competition, organized by the HPC Advisory Council and ISC High Performance, will be held for the sixth time, once again on the show floor.
