Shaping Tomorrow

2020

We are very pleased to announce that the inaugural ISC 2020 Digital held from Monday, June 22 – Thursday, June 25, replacing the live event in Frankfurt attracted 4,735 participants from 94 countries, emerging as a very successful online event for the HPC community.

Broken down by demographics, ISC 2020 Digital was attended by 2006 people from academia and 2236 from industry. It also attracted 397 students and 96 journalists and analysts. Out of 94 countries, organizers saw the highest attendance from the U.S. (1114), followed by Germany (742), Japan (601), United Kingdom (444), and China (259).

To deal with the different time zones of attendees, over 90 percent of the talks were provided as pre-recorded videos, while a couple of key sessions and workshops were streamed live.

Registered attendees will have exclusive access to all video content until July 6. After that, talks that speakers agreed to sharing with the general public will be hosted on ISC’s official YouTube channel.

We take the opportunity to congratulate all ISC Award and the Student Cluster Competition winners!

Research Paper Awards

The following awards will be given to outstanding research papers submitted to the conference:

HANS MEUER AWARD

The Hans Meuer Award honors the most outstanding research paper submitted to the conference’s Research Papers Committee. This award has been introduced in the memory of the late Dr. Hans Meuer, general chair of the ISC conference from 1986 through 2014, and co-founder of the TOP500 project.

From all submitted research papers, the Research Papers Committee will select the overall best paper for the award. The winner will be announced at the ISC High Performance Opening Session and will be given the opportunity to present a keynote talk on their work in one of the research paper sessions.

The winners of the Hans Meuer Award will also receive a cash prize of 1,500 Euros each and an award certificate.

The two papers selected as the winners of the Hans Meuer Award at ISC 2020 Digital are:

Under normal circumstances, both finalists would have fought for the award in front of a live audience in Frankfurt.

 

GAUSS AWARD

The GCS Award honors the most outstanding research paper submitted to the Research Papers Committee in the field of HPC. The GCS Award has been a key component of the conference each year since the foundation of the Gauss Centre for Supercomputing (GCS) in 2008. It is sponsored by GCS, an alliance of Germany's three national supercomputing centers — the High-Performance Computing Center Stuttgart (HLRS), Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC), and Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ).

The winner of the GCS Award will be announced during the conference opening session and will receive a cash prize of 5,000 Euros along with an award certificate.

The paper selected as the winner of the GCS Award at ISC 2020 Digital is:

Solving Acoustic Boundary Integral Equations Using High Performance Tile Low-Rank LU Factorization, authored by Kadir Akbudak, Noha Alharthi, Rabab Alomairy, Hakan Bagci, Rui Chen, David Keyes, Hatem Ltaief
