June 17-21 ISC’12 Conference on Record-Setting Pace for Registration, Exhibition

It’s not too late to register for the HPC event of 2012

HAMBURG, Germany, June 12 —With just a few days to go, the global High Performance Computing community is beating a path to the Congress Center Hamburg, where the 2012 International Supercomputing Conference (ISC’12) opens Sunday, June 17, welcoming record numbers of attendees— 2,300 and counting—as well as a record-setting 175 exhibitors from around the world.

There is still time to take advantage of lower registration fees by registering online now. Fees will go up when the conference opens June 17. Registration this year is running 15 percent ahead of last year, pointing to an estimated record attendance of 2,400 participants.

Now in its 27th year, ISC’12 hosts a day of hands-on tutorials and an HPC in Asia workshop (June 17), a four-day program of presentations by internationally recognized experts (June 18-21) and a three-day exhibition, the largest in Europe dedicated to HPC (June 18-20). Although international in scope, the conference program is conducted in English.

To give attendees the maximum flexibility in their schedules, ISC’12 offers a range of registration options, from one-day passes to the exhibition to an all-inclusive pass for the full four-day program. Separate registration is required for the workshop and tutorials. For details, see the ISC’12 Registration Site.

Here are some of the highlights for ISC’12:
