SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- The HPC Advisory Council, a leading organization for high-performance computing research, outreach and education, today announced the HPC Advisory Council Stanford High-Performance Computing Conference and Exascale Workshop on February 3-5, 2014 at Stanford, California. The conference will focus on High-Performance Computing (HPC) usage models and benefits, the future of supercomputing, latest technology developments, best practices and advanced HPC topics. New to this year’s program is the extended Exascale Workshop, a half-day event organized as part of the Thermal and Fluid Sciences Affiliates Program Conference, which will illustrate the vision of Exascale scientific computing. Talks will be given by leaders in the hardware community, representatives of the national laboratories, and engineering firms. The new Stanford Center for Exascale Engineering Computing sponsored by the DOE will also be featured.
The full conference is open to the public and will bring together system managers, researchers, developers, computational scientists and industry affiliates. Speaking and sponsorship opportunities are available on a limited basis.
“The Stanford HPC Conference is now in its 8th year of being offered free of charge, thanks to our conference sponsors,” said Steve Jones, Founder and Director, Stanford HPC Center. “Collaboration with the HPC Advisory Council has allowed us to advance our outreach mission, bring world-class speakers and attendees to the conference, and offer workshops and tutorials delivered by industry leaders.”
“We are pleased to continue our collaboration with Stanford University and look forward to another successful worldwide HPC Advisory Council conference,” said Gilad Shainer, Chairman of the HPC Advisory Council. “The HPC Advisory Council’s worldwide conferences and workshops are excellent educational opportunities for HPC and data center IT professionals who are looking to deploy or provide additional enhancements and functionality to their advanced high-performance solutions.”
The conference is free to the public, and will include coffee breaks and lunch courtesy of the HPC Advisory Council and Stanford University. Registration is required and can be made at the HPC Advisory Council Stanford Conference website.
A limited amount of sponsorship opportunities are still available. More information on sponsoring the workshop may be found on the HPC Advisory Council Stanford Conference website.
