Nov. 5, 2020 — High performance computing has never had a better—nor a tougher— year. Computing centers and data scientists have joined the fight against COVID-19—from decoding the virus’s RNA to modeling its transmission and accelerating treatment options.
As always, we’re amazed by what you do. We’re honored to be a small part of your great achievements, and we’re excited to come together for SC20—virtually—to celebrate your work and set our sights on the horizon.
What does Intel bring to SC20 this year? We’ll be hosting a variety of activities, including tech talks, demos, live booth chats, an executive presentation by Trish Damkroger, and the first-ever oneAPI Developer Summit.
Executive presentation by Trish Damkroger
As the vice president and general manager of the HPC organization, Trish Damkroger leads Intel’s global technical and HPC business. Her keynote video will discuss new paths to exascale, cross-architecture programming with oneAPI, and bringing AI and HPC together.
A closer look at Ice Lake
Intel’s Irma Esmer Papazian will discuss the next generation of Intel Xeon Scalable processors, code-named Ice Lake. Join us for a preview of the upcoming features of Ice Lake and the product’s benefits in running HPC workloads such as CAE, finance, and materials modeling.
Building the path to supercomputing solutions
Intel’s Jeff McVeigh, David Blythe, and Joe Curley will join guest Aksel Alpay of Heidelberg University to explore the path to supercomputing solutions using the Xe Architecture and oneAPI.
Supercomputers and COVID-19
Dan Stanzione, executive director of Texas Advanced Computing Center, and Intel’s Nash Palaniswamy will discuss the connection between supercomputers and COVID-19 and how advanced computing can help with drug discovery, vaccine development, and public health.
oneAPI Developer Summit
The first-ever summit for developers working with oneAPI, Data Parallel C++, and Intel oneAPI Toolkits is here! This two-day conference, November 12–13, will exhibit innovative solutions developed across multiple architecture platforms and will allow developers the chance to connect with peers and colleagues.
