SC22 Reveals New Digital Experience Features for Virtual Attendees

August 11, 2022

Aug. 11, 2022 — Just as the science of high performance computing continues to evolve, so too does the online platform that will bring SC22 to individuals around the globe who are unable to attend in person.

Digital SC attendance was inaugurated in 2020 due to the onset of the global Covid-19 pandemic. Building upon lessons learned in the past two years, the SC22 Digital Experience is a new, custom-built platform. Conference attendees who won’t be making the trek to Dallas this coming November will experience an easy-to-use interface that allows them to access content in real time, or later on demand.

Digital Experience access is also included with an in-person Technical Program registration. Attendees can plan their day without worrying about schedule conflicts—see one presentation in person, watch recordings of others later.

With just a few exceptions, we will be live-streaming all technical sessions from the convention center with all of that content available for on-demand access.

What’s New?

This year’s Digital Experience has been made more intuitive, enabling participants to easily access the preponderance of lectures, panels, exhibitor sessions, tutorials, and showcases taking place throughout the conference. For Digital Experience attendees to benefit from automatic closed captioning, the content will be live-streamed with a 12- to 15-second delay.

Digital Experience attendees will also be able to participate in Q&A sessions for most live-stream content through a Q&A interface. This allows participants to ask questions and/or vote on what questions they consider to be the most important; the session chairs will moderate the in-person and Digital Experience questions.

How We Made a Custom Platform

To optimize virtual access to SC22, we realized we needed to create our own platform. We began by assessing the platforms and features used for SC20 and SC21. We also considered virtual best practices implemented at other technology conferences, such as those conducted in the past year by IEEE.

The Virtual Logistics committee worked diligently to integrate this new Digital Experience within the SC22 website schedule. In this, attendees will not need to juggle between the website and a secondary virtual platform! We believe the refinements made for SC22 will simplify the online experience, and we believe our approach this year will reduce problems with latency and buffering that many conferences have experienced.

More importantly, everything live-streamed during SC22 will be recorded, edited, and uploaded for on-demand replay within 24 hours of being broadcast, as it was at SC21. That’s a significant benefit for both virtual and in-person conference attendees, who will be able to access the content from multiple conference sessions that take place simultaneously.

All on-demand content will remain available through January 1, 2023.

How to Attend Digitally

All in-person registrants automatically receive access to Digital Experience content, according to the registration category chosen. Attendees who only register for the Digital Experience will pay a reduced fee. Learn more about registration and fee options.

The SC22 Digital Experience will go live a few days before the conference begins, on or about November 1, 2022. You may access it via the blue bar at the top of each SC22 website page.

All registered attendees will receive an email invitation once the Digital Experience goes live, and the username will be the email address they used to register. The password will be the attendee’s registration ID number.

For more information, visit the SC22 Digital Experience page, which includes an FAQ at the bottom of the page.
