Vendor Showdown

Unique to this event, the Vendor Showdown offers forward-looking presentations by ISC platinum, gold and silver sponsors, namely industry powerhouses in computing, networking, data and storage across Europe, Asia and North America. The Showdown is split into two sessions that run in parallel. Each speaker has a few minutes to present their organization's newest strategy, product or research developments. A panel of expert moderators will then ask each speaker a few in-depth questions, some of which will be unknown to the presenter, making for a lively and candid discussion.

Exhibitor Forum

The Exhibitor Forum showcases the latest technologies and future plans in the HPC industry. Topics include system architectures, interconnects, processors, memory, storage, applications and system software. The forum allows attendees to gain a compact overview of the products and services of key HPC vendors, and to learn about new developments in the field. It is open to all ISC High Performance conference participants.
