Meet Us at ISC High Performance 2017

12 June 2017

On June 18-22, HLRS joins high-performance computing stakeholders from research and industry in Frankfurt to discuss the latest developments in the field. Here's how to find us.

ISC High Performance, previously known as International Supercomputing Conference, has established itself as a prominent annual HPC event. At this year's convention, High-Performance Computing Center Stuttgart (HLRS) activities will be represented at the following exhibits and workshops.

10 Years GCS

Gauss Centre for Supercomputing e.V. (GCS)
Booth #B-1310
GCS is a consortium of three premier supercomputing centers in Germany, and this year celebrates its 10-year anniversary at ISC. The High-Performance Computing Center Stuttgart (HLRS) will join its sister organizations—the Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC) and the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ)—in exhibiting in this joint booth.
About GCS

Funded Collaborative Research Projects

HLRS is a member of three projects funded by regional bodies, as well as the European Commission (EC), that will be present at separate booths in the exhibition area.

bwHPC-C5: Coordinated Compute Cluster Competence Centers
Booth #A-1410
Funded by the Ministerium für Wissenschaft, Forschung und Kunst Baden-Württemberg, bwHPC-C5 aims to facilitate researcher utilization of existing HPC systems. The project provides HPC services such as training, support in code porting, and assistance in accessing more powerful computing clusters for advanced HPC users.
About bwHPC-C5

Booth #K-512
This European Commission-funded project is conducting research on usage of HPC applications and services in the cloud, targeting critical aspects of efficiency, stability, and security. Consortium members will be present to talk about their efforts in improving the virtualization stack that is required to combine HPC and cloud computing infrastructures.

Mont-Blanc 3
Booth #K-415
This EC-funded research project focuses on the challenge of balancing computing efficiency and energy efficiency in future exascale systems. Mont-Blanc will for the first time show the outcome of its co-design approach, a new prototype based on Cavium ARM processors that leverages the underlying HPC architecture.
