Abstract:   ISC General Co-Chairs Martin Meuer und Thomas Meuer will open the 29th ISC conference, which is held in Leipzig, Germany for the second time. After the welcome address by a representative from politics/science, Dr. Bernd Mohr will announce the GAUSS and PRACE ISC Award winning papers (please note that the actual awarding ceremonies and paper presentations will take place during the Research Paper Sessions on Monday). An integral part of each Opening Session since 1993, when the TOP500 project first started, has been the unveiling of the TOP500 list, which is embargoed until shortly before the Opening Session. This time, the winners of the 43rd TOP500 list of different regions in the world will be announced, and Erich Strohmaier will focus on the “Highlights of the 43rd TOP500 List” in his presentation afterwards.
