Reinventing HPC

ISC 2019 Call for Project Posters

PLEASE NOTE: The Call for Project Posters is closed!

The project poster session is an excellent opportunity to present information about your research ideas and projects at ISC 2019. With more than 3,500 participants, ISC has established itself as the HPC event in Europe to disseminate ongoing and future research work, as well as foster discussion within the community, and engage in international cooperation.

We introduced the project poster session as a new track in 2017 to give scientists a platform for information exchange and due to its success continue this session. For attendees the project posters are an opportunity to gain an overview of new developments, HPC research and engineering activities. In contrast to the dissemination of research results in the research poster session, project posters enable participants to present ongoing and emerging projects by presenting fundamental ideas, methodology and preliminary work. Researchers with upcoming and recently funded projects are encouraged to submit a poster of their work. Those with novel project ideas are invited to present as well.

Attendance will require an Exhibition Pass. Please find the ISC 2019 registration fees here.
