HPC Advisory Council announces Stanford High-Performance Computing Conference 2016

11 Nov 2015 Sunnyvale - The HPC Advisory Council, an organisation for high-performance computing research, outreach and education, has announced the HPC Advisory Council Stanford High-Performance Computing Conference 2016 on February 24-25, 2016 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, as well as new topics surrounding machine learning and Big Data.

Paper submissions are now open and can cover across a wide range of topics and levels covering High-Performance Computing architectures, systems and applications-ranging from fundamentals to the latest advances in hot topic areas. Presentation only proposals (without papers) covering the same topics are open as well. Sponsorship opportunities are available on a limited basis. A prize for best paper will be awarded at the conference. Paper submission is due by December 1st, 2015.

"The Stanford HPC Conference is now in its 10th year of being offered free of charge, thanks to our conference sponsors", stated 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", stated 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 centre 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.
