The ISC’12 tutorials are half-day or full-day interactive courses focusing on key topics of high performance computing, networking and storage. Renowned experts in the field will give attendees a comprehensive introduction to the topic before taking a closer look at specific problems; they will incorporate hands-on components where appropriate.


Sunday, June 17

Half Day (9:00 am – 1:00 pm)

Half Day (2:00 pm – 6:00 pm)

In the Agenda Planner, Tutorials are marked in turquoise; to attend the tutorials, you need a Tutorial Pass. It allows registered attendees to move freely between all ISC’12 tutorials; it also covers tutorial notes and materials as well as morning/afternoon coffee and lunch.



The ISC’12 tutorials will be held on Sunday, June 17, 2012 at the University of Hamburg, which is just across from CCH–Congress Center Hamburg, the venue of the International Supercomputing Conference (ISC) taking place June 18–21, 2012.

Areas of Interest

Tutorials are intended to cover all areas of interest of ISC as listed on the Call for Papers. We encourage tutorials of broad applicability over those that focus solely on the research in a limited domain or a particular group.

Tutorials may focus entirely on theoretical aspects; however, we encourage organizers to incorporate hands-on sessions where appropriate. ISC will solely provide Internet access and rooms with standard presentation equipment. Hands-on tutorials must be prepared to rely on laptops brought by the participants.

Finally, we expect proposers to consider tutorials as educational events first, therefore they should plan to provide the attendees with a comprehensive introduction to the state-of-the-art in the tutorial’s topic before moving on to cover specific approaches in more depth.

ISC’12 Tutorials will be held on Sunday, June 17, 2012, and will either be half-day tutorials (9:00 am – 1:00 pm or 2:00 pm – 6:00 pm) or full-day tutorials (9:00 am – 6:00 pm).



Tutorial organizers are responsible for submitting the material to be given to attendees (slide sets, additional teaching material, software installation and usage guides for practical hands-on sessions, etc.) to the Tutorial Chair. The ISC’12 conference organizers are responsible for providing publicity for the tutorials as part of the conference publicity activities, and on-site logistical support to the tutorial organizers and attendees.


Proposal Submission

Tutorial proposals need to be submitted as a single pdf file via the EasyChair conference system by Sunday, January 22, 2012.

3. 2-page CV for each presenter
