HAMBURG, Germany, May 3 -- The 2010 International Supercomputing Conference, ISC'10, has set a new advance registration record and is now geared to be the best conference and exhibition in its 25-year history.
As of April 30, exactly a month before the kick-off of ISC'10, the registration was 28 percent higher compared to the same time last year, thus setting a brand new record for this year's global supercomputing event.
Not only is attendance ahead of last year's record pace, but the exhibition has also seen a 23.5 percent increase in exhibitors. 147 of the world's leading HPC manufacturers, vendors, HPC start-ups and research institutions have already secured exhibition space for ISC'10, compared to 119 exhibitors in 2009. These increases correspond to analysts' prediction that the HPC market will resume growth by 5 to 7 percent in mid-2010.
ISC will be held from May 30 – June 3, once again in Hamburg. The 2010 agenda consists of a half-day session of tutorials, a four-day conference and a two-and-half day exhibition. The conference and exhibition will convene in the Congress Center Hamburg, while the tutorials will be held at the University of Hamburg, which is a short walk from the convention center. Read the complete agenda.
"By following our proven strategy of providing a valuable conference, a comprehensive exhibition and many unmatchable social and networking events, we are determined to make ISC'10, which also celebrates its 25th Anniversary, the best HPC event in 2010," said ISC Executive Director Martin Meuer.
"I encourage all those who are yet to register to take advantage of our flexible registration options. Each day contains a versatile program, thus giving even the busiest people the chance to be a part of ISC'10."
ISC has a well-established reputation for presenting well-founded, precise and up-to-date information in an environment that encourages informal conversations and sharing of ideas. All conference proceedings are conducted in English.
Also new for this year's program, is an exclusive "crash course" on high performance computing. To be held Wednesday, June 2, this course will introduce those who are new to the field to the basics of supercomputing.
Now in its 25th year, ISC is the world's oldest and Europe's most important conference for the HPC community, offering a strong five-day technical program with a wide range of expert speakers and exhibits from leading research centers and vendors. A number of events complement the technical program, including Tutorials, Scientific Day, Birds of a Feather (BoF) sessions, a research poster session, Exhibitor Forum and the popular "Hot Seat Sessions" featuring leaders from industry and research centers. The conference has experienced tremendous growth over the last few years, with an estimated 2,000 participants from around the world expected to convene in Hamburg, May 30 –June 3.
ISC'10 is open to IT-decision makers, members of the HPC global community and other interested parties. The ISC exhibition allows analysts, decision-makers from the automotive, defense, aeronautical, gas & oil, banking and other industries; solution providers, data storage suppliers, distributors, hardware and software manufacturers, the media, scientists and universities to see and learn firsthand about new products, applications and technological advances in the supercomputing industry today.

In quieter times, sounding the bell of funding big science with big systems tends to resonate further than when ears are already burning with sour economic and national security news. For exascale's future, however, the time could be ripe to instill some sense of urgency....
In a recent solicitation, the NSF laid out needs for furthering its scientific and engineering infrastructure with new tools to go beyond top performance, Having already delivered systems like Stampede and Blue Waters, they're turning an eye to solving data-intensive challenges. We spoke with the agency's Irene Qualters and Barry Schneider about..
Large-scale, worldwide scientific initiatives rely on some cloud-based system to both coordinate efforts and manage computational efforts at peak times that cannot be contained within the combined in-house HPC resources. Last week at Google I/O, Brookhaven National Lab’s Sergey Panitkin discussed the role of the Google Compute Engine in providing computational support to ATLAS, a detector of high-energy particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).

he study of climate change is one of those scientific problems where it is almost essential to model the entire Earth to attain accurate results and make worthwhile predictions. In an attempt to make climate science more accessible to smaller research facilities, NASA introduced what they call ‘Climate in a Box,’ a system they note acts as a desktop supercomputer.

At some point in the not-too-distant future, building powerful, miniature computing systems will be considered a hobby for high schoolers, just as robotics or even Lego-building are today. That could be made possible through recent advancements made with the Raspberry Pi computers.

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.
