Shaping Tomorrow

Welcome to ISC High Performance 2020


ISC 2020 Submission

ISC High Performance 2020 - June 21 - 25 - Messe Frankfurt, Germany - (Hall 3 and Forum)

Over 3,700 practitioners and users will come together in Frankfurt, Germany, from June 21 - 25, to discuss and explore international developments and trends in some of the fastest growing segments of IT.

The ISC Exhibition, consisting of over 160 exhibitors, caters to the hardware and software demands of global research centers and businesses in the fields of HPC, artificial intelligence, machine learning and data analytics.

Attendees will draw value from the event by learning about new products and technologies, exchanging ideas with their peers, making new connections, and advancing their careers. At the same time, exhibitors will get access to an audience interested in finding the best solutions to their business and research challenges.

The ISC 2020 topics listed below reflect the course of next year’s Invited and Contributed Programs.
