Every year, leading international organizations, research institutions and private industry in the U.S., Europe and China partner and collaborate with the HPCAC to co-host and participate in these immersive forums that strive to showcase expert practitioners and breakthrough solutions ̶ all made possible by HPC disciplines and technology innovations. Each conference is organized through direct collaboration with contributors from across the global research and development community, all of whom generously contribute their time and expertise. The conferences offer expansive agendas that are collaboratively developed by industry experts as well as through the open calls for submissions of papers and topics. Contributors have the freedom to define their preferred delivery format and sessions can be submitted as lone presentations or a series; technical session(s), tutorial(s), workshop(s), etc. Contributors are also free to classify their submissions of a series as introductory, intermediate or advanced sessions.
“HPC is constantly evolving and reflects the driving force behind many medical, industrial and scientific breakthroughs using research that harnesses the power of HPC and yet, we’ve only scratched the surface with respect to exploiting the endless opportunities that HPC, modeling, and simulation present,” said Gilad Shainer, chairman of the HPC Advisory Council. “The HPCAC conference series presents a unique opportunity for the global HPC community to come together in an unprecedented fashion to share, collaborate, and innovate our way into the future.”
“The enthusiasm and support we experience each year as we bring people together from across campus, the tech community and the globe as presenters, participants and peers is nothing short of life and career altering,” said Steve Jones, Director of Stanford’s High Performance Computing Center. “The conference encourages collaborative sharing of research breakthroughs and best practices on an unprecedented level benefitting not just attendees but ultimately, humanity. In educating and sharing across the HPC community, we ultimately take away lessons learned and newfound knowledge as we all strive to make the world a better place.”
“From understanding the beginnings of the universe to mapping the human genome, human beings possess an insatiable drive to understand and stretch the boundaries of technology and innovation,” said Hussein El Harake, Director of the HPCAC Switzerland Center of Excellence and CSCS System Engineer. “This conference has helped expand our collaborations and develop stronger bonds between science, industry and academia, creating a tighter HPC ecosystem and continuously moving forward in our collective understanding regarding what HPC can and is accomplishing.”
Industry partners, HPCAC members and technical experts all work closely together to bring private industry together with public institutions to facilitate these international forums. While the conferences are non-profit events, the overall return on investment is formidable. Conference hosts, sponsors and attendees all benefit from learning about the latest developments, increased knowledge and insights as well as early access to new and emerging technologies, services, capabilities, shared results, best practices and more.
