Reinventing HPC

ISC 2021 Call for Project Posters

Call for Project Posters is closed!

PLEASE NOTE: Due to global health trends, ISC 2021 will be an online-only event; the information below has been updated to reflect this.

The project poster session is an excellent opportunity to present information about your projects and research ideas at ISC 2021 Digital. 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 to give scientists a platform for information exchange. 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.

All posters will be presented through the digital ISC within our highly interactive digital platform offering the most sophisticated matchmaking and engagement capabilities between presenters and attendees. The lightning talks will be available one week before ISC starts to give our community enough time to prepare for the interactive poster reception during ISC 2021 Digital.

Submitted Project Poster proposals will be reviewed by the ISC 2021 Project Poster Committee, which is headed by Erwan Raffin, Atos, France as Chair and Christian Perez, Inria, France as Deputy Chair.
