Call for Posters at “HPC in Asia Workshop” at ISC’12

The second “HPC in Asia Workshop” to be held in conjunction with the 2012 International Supercomputing Conference (ISC’12) is inviting researchers to submit research posters to be displayed at the workshop.

The workshop, to be held June 17 in Hamburg, Germany, aims to share information on the latest status of HPC systems and applications from leading countries in Asia, as well as presenting related HPC activities and research in Asia.

The first HPC in Asia Workshop was held as part of ISC’11 and drew 90 attendees from Asia, Europe and the U.S. The success of that workshop led organizers to plan a second session in 2012 and expand the scope to include research posters. The scope of poster presentations include the following areas but is not limited to them:

Poster Presentation

All accepted posters will be presented at the workshop poster session. The extended abstract and poster materials will be included in the online website as a collection of workshop materials.

Important dates

The goal is to provide a collegial setting to allow HPC researchers from Asia and Europe to network and explore possible areas of collaboration
