After two years off due to pandemic, on Sunday 29th the HPC conference, namely the ISC returned.
As an early bird I arrived at our venue first thing this morning. This is how the entrance of our home for the next few days, the CCH, and the registration desk, look like, :
There were many tutorials to choose from during the first day. Following German punctuality, all talks followed the agenda and were on time. Personally, it was a very hard to decide whether to attend the GPU day or the half day of OpenMP and the other half for MPI parallel programming. Pictured here is the OpenMP team that had planned to release OpenMP 6.0 in November 2023. In the right side of the picture, you can see a lady running an HPC tutorial. It was so great to see a woman presenting her expertise.
Meeting HPC people I already know was fantastic! I am very glad to have had warm greetings from them.
And of course, such conferences are a wonderful opportunity to meet many new, friendly people.
The HPC Community
HPC companies stalls
People from all over the world are working hard to make everything perfect for the exhibition booths.
Student Cluster Competition
Students from related HPC programs at many universities have arrived today and prepare their clusters to boost them up for the student cluster competition.
Bytes Size Food
Food came well prepared in perfectly sized individual portions (or bytes?) 🙂
The breakfast, the lunch and the breakfast were all first class.
An ISC Team
I was delighted to meet the ladies who are so important behind the scenes of one of the prominent HPC conferences in the world such as ISC which has been held since 1986.
The AMD night celebration
The partnership of Hewlett Packard and AMD organised the exquisite dinner.
Overall, I am enjoying the event. Many thanks to the ISC committee 2022 for the welcoming tweet!
