ISC’13 has announced that its expected 2,500 attendees will not to have to choose between competing sessions in the brand-new Industry Track, which will run as a series of single sessions, parallel to the current conference track (formerly known as the official conference program), on Tuesday, June 18, and Wednesday, June 19.
ISC’13 will be held for the first time in the historic German city of Leipzig from June 16 -20. The goal of the Industry Track is to help attendees from the industry, who often have different computing requirements than those at scientific institutions, make informed decisions about acquiring and operating HPC systems. This newly established track will focus on engineering and manufacturing in industry, especially on helping the industry improve product design and time-to-market through the use of HPC. The talks are also aimed at spurring a dialogue between users, technology companies, hardware vendors, software vendors and service providers. Small and medium Enterprises (SMEs) will be strongly represented.
The following Sessions and Panels are planned in the Industry Track:
- HPC provisioning concepts for the industrial sector
- Independent software vendors (ISVs) and their HPC products for industry
- Cloud HPC for SMEs
- An invited talk about the common needs of engineering and scientific research in regard to HPC: “HPC-Accelerated Innovation for Industry”
- An overview of the SME market
- Many case studies, which will run on both days to give the audience an overview of HPC use in industry.
The full conference program will be available online on March 14, coinciding with the opening of the ISC’13 registration, but in the meantime, visit www.isc13.org to find about the ISC’13 topics, the exhibition and the various opportunities the organizers offer attendees to enable them to actively participate in this year’s event.
