Established in 1988, the annual SC conference continues to grow steadily in size and impact each year. Approximately 5,000 people participate in the technical program, with about 11,000 people overall. SC has built a diverse community of participants including researchers, scientists, application developers, computing center staff and management, computing industry staff, agency program managers, journalists, and congressional staffers. This diversity is one of the conference's main strengths, making it a yearly "must attend" forum for stakeholders throughout the technical computing community. The technical program is the heart of SC. It has addressed virtually every area of scientific and engineering research, as well as technological development, innovation, and education. Its presentations, tutorials, panels, and discussion forums have included breakthroughs in many areas and inspired new and innovative areas of computing.
SC17 will once again bring together the international high performance computing community—a gathering of scientists, engineers, researchers, educators, programmers, system administrators and developers that is unequaled in the world—for an exceptional program of technical presentations, papers, informative tutorials, timely research posters and Birds-of-a-Feather (BoF) sessions. The SC17 Exhibition Hall will feature the latest technologies and accomplishments from the world’s leading vendors, research organizations and universities; SC17 provides the unique opportunity to see the latest technologies that will shape the future of large-scale technical computing and data-driven science.
SC attracts an exclusive group of scientists, researchers, department managers, lab directors and decision makers from all corners of the High Performance Computing (HPC) and networking industry. Your organization can be well positioned and highly visible for the 13,000+ attendees from around the world as they converge on Denver, Colorado to see the latest innovations in HPC, networking, storage, and related fields.
No other event provides such extensive, targeted opportunities for exposure and in-depth interaction with your key customer audiences. The SC exhibit floor is a featured part of this premier and well-respected technical conference. Supported by a powerful live network infrastructure called SCinet, SC uniquely provides exhibitors the ability to showcase the full capabilities of your products and services for either large-scale or one-on-one demonstrations for prospective customers. As the venue that has built a legacy for debuting the most advanced innovations in the HPC, networking, and storage industries, attendees year after year come to SC to discover the latest solutions that will keep them at the leading edge of their professions.
