Newsletter – Issue 5

Dear Reader,
The ISC’12 early-bird registration is now open and offers early registrants’ savings of over 25 percent off the regular onsite registration fee.
If you combine this discount with the improvements and additions to this year’s program, you have even more incentive for planning now to attend ISC’12. The comprehensive program consists of full-day tutorials, workshops, a 4-day conference and 3-day exhibition featuring dynamic exhibits from about 160 leading HPC companies and research organizations. If you haven’t had a chance to experience ISC yet, 2012 is the perfect time to start.
And you can tailor your registration to meet your interests and schedule, thanks to a flexible pricing system that allows you to register for the entire program, or just select the specific days or events you want to attend. For more information about fees and registrations, please click here.
Lastly, if you want to find out who has registered so far, click here. The team and I look forward to seeing you in Hamburg, from June 17-21.
Best regards,

Martin Meuer
