SUNNYVALE, Calif., Dec. 4 – The HPC Advisory Council, a leading organization for high-performance computing research, outreach and education, today announced the formation of the HPC Advisory Council Stanford High-Performance Computing Conference on February 7th and 8th, 2013 at Stanford, California. The conference will focus on High-Performance Computing (HPC) usage models and benefits, the future of supercomputing, latest technology developments, best practices and advanced HPC topics. The conference is open to the public and will bring together system managers, researchers, developers, computational scientists and industry affiliates. Speaking and sponsorship opportunities are available on a limited basis.
“The Stanford HPC Conference is now in its 7th year of being offered free of charge, thanks to our conference sponsors,” said Steve Jones, Founder and Director, Stanford HPC Center. “Collaboration with the HPC Advisory Council has allowed us to advance our outreach mission, bring world-class speakers and attendees to the conference, and offer workshops and tutorials delivered by industry leaders.”
“We are pleased to continue our collaboration with Stanford University and look forward to another successful worldwide HPC Advisory Council conference,” said Gilad Shainer, Chairman of the HPC Advisory Council. “The HPC Advisory Council’s worldwide conferences and workshops are excellent educational opportunities for HPC and data center IT professionals who are looking to deploy or provide additional enhancements and functionality to their advanced high-performance solutions.”
The conference is free to the public, and will include coffee breaks and lunch courtesy of the HPC Advisory Council and Stanford University. Registration is required and can be made at the HPC Advisory Council Stanford Conference website.
The HPC Advisory Council Stanford Conference is sponsored by the following companies: AMD, Mellanox Technologies, Panasas, and Xyratex. Media sponsorship and coverage is being provided by HPCwire and insideHPC. A limited amount of sponsorship opportunities are still available. More information on sponsoring the workshop may be found on the HPC Advisory Council Stanford Conference website.
About the HPC Advisory Council
The HPC Advisory Council’s mission is to bridge the gap between high-performance computing (HPC) use and its potential, bring the beneficial capabilities of HPC to new users for better research, education, innovation and product manufacturing, bring users the expertise needed to operate HPC systems, provide application designers with the tools needed to enable parallel computing, and to strengthen the qualification and integration of HPC system products.
