In this podcast, Rich gives us a day-by-day preview of the upcoming ISC 2017 conference. The event takes place June 18-22 in Frankfurt, Germany.
“ISC High Performance focuses on HPC technological development and its application in scientific fields, as well as its adoption in commercial environments. In 2017 we offer you 13 fascinating HPC topics grouped under three categories: systems, applications, and emerging topics. All topics will be addressed in different power-packed sessions. The ISC tutorials, workshops and the exhibition will complement these sessions.”
