January 27, 2022 – ISC Program Chair Keren Bergman has confirmed that the ISC High Performance 2022 Conference will be primarily an in-person event while offering online content.
The following is a blog post she wrote with updated information about the conference, which will take place from May 29th to June 2nd, 2022 in Hamburg, Germany.
Welcome to 2022!
Times have been undeniably tough and challenging for the conference industry, including the ISC conference series. Fortunately, ISC organizers have been able to maintain strong continuity for the series throughout 2020 and 2021 with online events, providing our HPC community with an international platform to showcase the latest important advances. The pandemic has not hampered advances in science and technology, and over the past two years, the ISC has continued to highlight the latest research and innovations in HPC.
2022 is a landmark year as ISC returns as a hybrid conference, mostly in-person but also with online content. It is our hope that we will once again be able to engage in physical interactions with our colleagues and peers so that we can all benefit from each other’s work. Also in 2022, the event will take place at a new location, which will provide the framework for an exciting technical program and a live exhibition that expects over 3,000 visitors.
I’m looking forward to traveling to Hamburg and meeting in person with colleagues I haven’t met in a long time. Of course, ISC undertakes to take all necessary precautions to offer participants a safe conference experience. We follow regulations set by local government, guidelines from public health authorities and best practices. Hamburg is beautiful, I’ve been told, and the adjacent Garden Planten und Blomen is also on my to-do list.
Now let’s get back to something more serious. This year we offer six titles in the invited program to cover system architecture, applications and algorithms, parallel programming and performance modeling, machine learning, quantum computing, and HPC and machine learning in industry. All of these topics will be dealt with in 32 ongoing sessions Monday 30 May to Wednesday 1 June.
The ISC is undeniably a High Performance Computing conference and as such the bulk of the program will be on traditional HPC related topics. However, an important part of the invited sessions will also be deepened machine learningand the emerging use of quantum computing. Both areas are becoming increasingly important in the field of high performance computing.
I am very honored to be involved in this year’s event as program chair and to work with incredibly talented colleagues to shape the invited program.
I invite you to bookmark the conference website – isc.hpc.com – and revisit sometime in March for more detailed information about the program!
