SUNNYVALE, Calif., March 29 -- The HPC Advisory Council, a leading organization for high-performance computing research, outreach and education, today announced that the HPC Advisory Council, in conjunction with ISC'10, will host the HPC Advisory Council European Workshop 2010 in the CCH-Congress Center Hamburg, Hamburg, Germany, on May 30, 2010. The workshop will cover advanced topics such as GPU computing, MPI offloads, congestion management, networking optimizations and will feature presenters from Oakridge National Laboratory, Jülich Supercomputing Centre, Simula Research Laboratory, the 451 Group, and HPC Advisory Council professionals as well as technologists from various Independent Software Vendors and OEMs. The workshop will bring together system managers, researchers, developers, computational scientists, students and industry affiliates to discuss recent HPC developments and future advancements.
"The HPC Advisory Council continues its worldwide HPC workshops and we are pleased to collaborate with ISC for this upcoming High-Performance Computing education and outreach workshop in Germany," said Gilad Shainer, chairman of the HPC Advisory Council. "This is an excellent educational opportunity for European-based, HPC and datacenter IT professionals."
"ISC is delighted to collaborate with the HPC Advisory Council by hosting this event," said Dr. Hans Werner Meuer, ISC general chair. "The council has become a cornerstone for HPC outreach and education and we are looking forward to a very rich and interesting program highlighting the current status and the future development of various high-performance technologies."
The HPC Advisory Council European Workshop is sponsored by leading high-performance computing companies and organizations such as AMD, Dell, HP, Mellanox Technologies, Microsoft, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Panasas, Scalable Graphics, and Simula. Media sponsors of the event include the 451 Group and insideHPC. For the complete agenda and schedule, and the complete list of speakers, please refer to the workshop website.
Pricing for the one-day workshop is 30€. Registration for the workshop is required and is now open through the ISC'10 registration page. The one-day workshop will include coffee breaks, lunch, and dinner courtesy of the HPC Advisory Council. For more information, visit www.hpcadvisorycouncil.com/events/european_workshop/.
Now in its 25th year, ISC is the world's oldest and Europe's most important conference 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, Scientific Day, Birds of a Feather (BoF) sessions, a research poster session, Exhibitor Forum 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 and 140 exhibitors from around the world expected to convene in Hamburg, May 30 – June 3.
ISC'10 is open to IT-decision makers, 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.
