Still time to save on ISC 2015 registration – Register online by June 10


3 Jun 2015 Frankfurt - The early bird registration period for the 30th annual ISC High Performance conference will close June 10, 2015, thus bringing the opportunity for attendees to save over 30 percent off the on-site registration rates to an end. The organizers encourage participants not to wait until the last minute to register.

This year the conference will be held in a world-class conference destination - Frankfurt, Germany. The ISC 2015 Conference and Exhibition anticipates an attendance of 2,600 participants from around the world. So far 151 companies have signed up to exhibit, and the organizers continue to receive co-exhibitor registrations, pointing to a hopeful total of 160 exhibitors on the 2015 show floor.

Here is an overview of the different passes available to ISC 2015 attendees:

  • Conference Pass: The conference pass gives access to all sessions from Monday, July 13, through Wednesday, July 15, as well as the exhibition.
  • Exhibition Pass: Pass holders have access to all Birds-of-a-Feather (BoF) sessions, the Vendor Showdown, the exhibition (and all related activities), the ISC Student Cluster Competition awarding, and the 30th anniversary party on Monday, July 13.
  • Tutorial Pass: This pass provides access to 11 full-day and half-day interactive tutorials on Sunday, July 12.
  • Workshop Pass: The inaugural workshops will be hosted on Thursday, July 16, introducing 17 European and international initiatives to the attendees.

Once again, here are the ISC 2015 highlights:

Keynotes:

1. High-Performance Computing - Highly Efficient Development - Mercedes-Benz Cars

2. Applications Leveraging Supercomputing Systems
