Imagine Tomorrow

Vendor Program

The ISC Vendor Program complements the ISC Exhibition by providing a platform for commercial organizations to talk about the strategies that drive their offerings and business directions. Companies are also given the opportunity to demonstrate their current and upcoming solutions. As a result, this program enables HPC users from science, engineering, and commerce to receive a comprehensive overview of what products and services are available in the market, as well as what they can expect to see in the future.
(Pass type: Conference, Exhibition, Online)


Vendor Program Schedule


Monday, May 22 from 1pm-3pm

The popular Vendor Showdown offers forward-looking presentations by industry powerhouses in HPC. The showdown is split into two sessions that run in parallel. Each speaker has a few minutes to present their organization's newest strategy, products, and research. A panel of expert moderators will then ask each speaker probing questions, making for a lively discussion.

Vendor Roadmaps

Wednesday, May 24 from 1pm-3:30pm

Vendors in this session will satisfy attendees' curiosity about their long-term goals and what is currently in the pipeline by offering a glimpse of their product development.





Virtual Product Demonstrations (online)

Monday, May 22 to Wednesday, May 24

Each participating exhibitor (industry or research) will present a 10–15-minute video demo of their latest technologies and solutions.

This session allows attendees to explore what's new in HPC, learn about the latest innovations, and discover new suppliers in the industry.



HPC Solutions Forum (onsite or online)

Monday, May 22 to Wednesday, May 24 in the exhibition hall

The HPC Solutions Forum provides a glimpse into the strategic thinking driving some of the leading companies and research institutions in the HPC space. During the session, a selection of topics offered by the event organizers will be addressed by the various representatives of these organizations. The topics encompass an array of subjects crucial to the HPC industry – from cloud computing, machine learning, and performance optimization to networks, composability, and data management. Each speaker has 20 minutes to present their take on one of these topics and how it relates to their organization’s technological and business strategies. Some talks will take place live onsite at the event venue and some will be available online as a video on demand.

  • What technologies are being developed for machine learning that would not have come about for HPC previously? Are they applicable outside ML?
  • How should an organization determine the proper balance between cloud and on-prem, for performance, scalability, and TCO?
  • Discuss the software development considerations in balancing performance, scalability, and portability.
  • What’s the difference between high-performance computing and power-efficient computing?
  • How is high-performance storage in the 2020s different from what it looked like in the 2010s?
  • What is the relationship between Edge Computing and HPC?
  • What networking advancements would be the biggest surprise to someone stuck in the previous generation?
  • How will quantum computing change the HPC application landscape over the next five, ten, and twenty years?
  • The next innovation: What will be the big news at ISC 2033? Be as specific as you can.
