Reinventing HPC


FRANKFURT, Germany, June 21, 2018 - Now in its 33rd year, the ISC High Performance set a new attendance record by attracting 3,505 people and 162 companies and research organizations from 59 countries to ISC High Performance 2018. HPC users and vendors came together over five days to exchange ideas and display new products. 

Major Themes

The rapidly evolving technologies of digital modeling, machine learning & AI, data analytics, and exascale computing provides a new and exciting vision for the future of high performance computing. The intersection between these four technologies promises to reshape the application landscape in both research and industry, as well as change the nature of HPC systems. The 2018 conference touched on all of these themes in nearly every session and talk, attracting executives, researchers, engineers, and anyone else interested in the shape of things to come.
