About ISC 2024
The ISC High Performance 2024 conference and exhibition is an annual global gathering for HPC technology providers and users. It aims to foster the growth of a thriving community that now includes practitioners of machine learning, data analytics, and quantum computing. The first ISC conference was held back in 1986.
The ISC 2024 conference will be held in Hamburg, Germany from May 12-16, bringing together over 3,000 international attendees to exchange ideas and knowledge on Reinventing HPC.
As Moore's Law slows down and semiconductor fabrication costs rise, high performance computing (HPC) is at a critical juncture. Cloud hyperscalers are increasingly dominating computing economics by utilizing custom semiconductors. Meanwhile, AI advancements are transforming scientific computation and our approach to achieving scientific breakthroughs. However, HPC remains the core engine for enabling machine learning applications with ever-rising performance requirements.
During his keynote speech at ISC 2023, Professor Dan Reed proposed a fundamental change in the current approaches to designing and constructing high performance computing systems.
Professor Michela Taufer, ISC 2024 Program Chair, will lead the community in exploring the opportunities and challenges of reinventing HPC. The program will cover emerging technologies and new ways of interaction between HPC, AI, and Quantum Computing. The discussions will include achievements and outlooks from vendors, service providers, and users on keeping up with changes in the HPC landscape.
