Conference Overview

The SC Conference is the premier international conference on high performance computing (HPC), networking, storage and analysis, and it attracts from all over the world scientists, researchers, software developers, network engineers, policy makers, corporate managers, CIOs and IT administrators from universities, industry and government from all over the world.

Following the traditions set by the first SC Conference in 1988, SC08 will celebrate 20 years of unleashing the power of HPC. SC08 will host an exceptional Technical Program, Exhibits area, Education Program and many other activities. In an effort to broaden the scope of the SC program, two Technology Thrusts—in Energy and Biomedical Informatics—have been added for SC08.

At SC08 attendees will become immersed in the latest state-of-the-field developments in technology, applications, vendor products, research results and national policy and national/ international initiatives. SC08 will be the one place attendees will see tomorrow’s technology being used to solve world-class challenge problems today.

The SC08 Conference will demonstrate how high performance computing, networking, storage and analysis touch all disciplines to enhance people's abilities to understand information and lead to new understanding, promote interdisciplinary projects, and affect the educational process through the use of computers in modeling and simulation in the classroom.

SC08 will provide attendees the opportunity to speak with industry and academic research leaders through the Technical Program, Industry Exhibits, Exhibitor Forum, Research Exhibits and Birds-of-a-Feather sessions.

The SC08 Education Program is designed to work with undergraduate faculty, administrators and college students to integrate computational science and the high performance computing and communications technologies highlighted through the SC Conference into the preparation of future scientists, technologists, engineers, mathematicians and teachers.

At SC08, the Broader Engagement Program will provide participation grants and a number of opportunities and activities to help broaden the engagement of individuals from around the globe, in groups and disciplines that traditionally have been underrepresented in high performance computing or at the SC Conference series.

We look forward to your participation!
