ISC High Performance 2022
May 29
- June 2, Messe Hamburg, Germany

PLEASE NOTE: Calls are open for submission!

Welcome to ISC 2022, our first in-person conference and exhibition since the pandemic. Regular attendees continue to express the wish to gather in person and we would like to honor this preference after providing them with a virtual experience for two consequent years.

In bringing everyone together under one roof, we will be strictly complying with all the safety and health measures prescribed by the Federal Ministry of Health and the local authority.

The 2022 event will be held in the beautiful city of Hamburg from May 29 to June 2.

For those who are unable to travel, we will offer a selection of online programs to choose from. (more information to come)

The topics listed below reflect the course of the 2022 Invited and Contributed Programs.
