A Great Start for HPC Big Data, Thanks to All Sponsors and Attendees
The first ISC Big Data Conference exceeded the expectations of many participants, generating a fascinating interaction that spanned more than two days. But this is just the beginning!
Echoing our determination to bring representatives from data-intensive enterprises and scientific HPC installations to share their know-how and experiences, one attendee noted that, “this conference achieved what no other conferences have to date: to bring the HPC and the Big Data parties to a common table for an open discussion on mutual collaboration and further shared research and development.”
We believe this newly-established collaboration will help foster innovation, as big data technologies become more widespread in organizations and critical to their missions. HPC vendors and practitioners can accelerate the commercial viability of these technologies, offering a set of solutions covering a wide range of big data analytics, graph processing, simulations and predictive modeling.
Some of the 135 attendees were encouraged to share stories from the conference with peers on social media. Click here to get a feel for the conference as it unfolded in real time. All photos taken during the conference are now available on Flickr. Feel free to download the images here.
Come back to the website in a few weeks for a more detailed attendee and program analysis. In the meantime, attendees will receive the proceedings via e-mail.
We hope to see you again at our 2014 conferences:
- ISC'14 in Leipzig, Germany, June 22–26
- ISC Cloud'14 in Heidelberg, Germany, September 29–30
- ISC Big Data'14 in Heidelberg, Germany, October 1–2
