The ISC tutorials are interactive courses and collaborative learning experiences focusing on key topics of high performance computing, machine learning, data analytics and quantum computing.
Renowned experts in their respective fields will give attendees a comprehensive introduction to the topic as well as providing a closer look at specific problems.

- Additional topics that expand broader community engagement.
- Innovative and emerging HPC technologies, e.g., cloud technologies for HPC, quantum computing, artificial intelligence, and machine learning.
- Introductory tutorials for attendees new to HPC
- We encourage tutorials that serve a broad audience over tutorials that focus solely on the research in a limited domain or a particular group.
- Practical tutorials are preferred to completely theoretical ones and we encourage organizers to incorporate hands-on sessions where appropriate.
