6 Nov 2014 Frankfurt - Celebrating their 30th conference anniversary, the organizers of ISC High Performance have announced that the 2015 technical content will be strikingly broad in subject matter, differentiated and timely. Over 2,600 attendees will gather in Frankfurt, from July 12-16, 2015, to discuss their organisational needs and the industry's challenges, as well as learn about the latest research, products and solutions. The conference will be supported by a comprehensive exhibition, hosting over 160 vendors and international research organisations covering all areas of HPC.
Topics for the technical content have been selected under the direction of the ISC 2015 Programme Chair, Prof. Dr. Arndt Bode, along with a dedicated team of 39 experts serving as the conference's steering committee. These individuals bring their own research interests and areas of focus into the programme, thus opening up the 2015 invited talks to a range of unique topics and speakers. ISC High Performance is the only yearly international HPC forum that introduces over 300 hand-picked speakers to their attendees.
The full programme details will be available when the registration opens next March. For the time being, here are the 2015 focus topics:
The names of the steering committee members as well as the other committees are now listed on ISC High Performance 's brand new website. You can visit it regularly as the organizers will continue updating the site with new information.
It is also worth mentioning here that Prof. Yutong Lu of the National University of Defense Technology, China (NUDT) will be serving as the co-chair of the HPC in Asia Session. She will be the first female scientist to lead the programme committee, along with its chair, Prof. Dr. Taisuke Boku. This session is dedicated specifically to the development and deployment of high performance computing in Asia and Australia.
Various calls are now open to scientists, researchers and engineers. You can visit the programme page for the description and submission guidelines. The organizers would like to emphasize that it is the active involvement of the HPC community members through the research paper, poster and BoF sessions, as well as tutorials and the newly introduced workshops that will allow them to provide a diversified research programme in 2015.
In addition, the conference will also offer a comprehensive industry programme for users interested in commercial HPC applications. Details will be available later.
