Dallas, TEXAS — This November, the world’s leading manufacturers and researchers in the field of high-performance computing and networking will gather here to present their latest hardware, software and research results at the SC2000 conference. This year’s conference features a new Venture Village exhibit area, aimed at allowing up-and-coming information technology firms to exhibit their wares to a leading-edge audience.
Exhibit space in the Venture Village is available at no charge to the participating companies. Firms already on the village roster include KnowledgePort Alliance, Entropia, Alibre, Chiaro Networks, CenterPointe Ventures, United Devices, NoInk Communications and NetGen Learning Systems.
“The world of high-performance computing and networking is constantly being reinvented, with yesterday’s upstarts becoming today’s industry leaders,” said Dennis Duke, chair of the Venture Village program. “That cycle seems to be never-ending and we want this year’s conference to provide a platform for the emerging firms which could already be shaping the future of information technology.”
This year’s conference will be held Nov. 4-10 in the Dallas Convention Center. For more information about the SC2000 conference, go to http://www.sc2000.org .
