ISC 2017 OPENS ITS DOORS TO THE HPC COMMUNITY
FRANKFURT, Germany, June 15, 2017 – In less than three days, over 3,000 attendees from 58 countries will be converging on the city of Frankfurt to attend the 32nd ISC High Performance conference, living up to its reputation as the largest HPC forum in Europe.
Current registration numbers are eight percent higher than last year, promising an increase in attendance from Germany, the US, the UK and Japan. If the current trend continues, the conference will make history with record attendance.
This year’s main program will be held at Messe Frankfurt, from June 18 – 21 and the workshops will be offered at Marriott Frankfurt on June 22. The organizers have lined up a program comprising compelling topics that will be addressed by experts in their fields. Worthy of mention are the Industrial Day and Deep Learning Day, which will focus on commercial HPC and AI, respectively. Both programs are designed to benefit commercial users and the academic community.
The accompanying exhibition will display product demonstrations and research projects from 148 key vendors, research centers and universities in the HPC space.
