The third ISC Cloud Conference will bring into focus two of the biggest topics in high performance computing — the potential of clouds to meet the demand for HPC, and how best to deal with Big Data and HPC. Organized by the same team behind the International Supercomputing Conference, ISC Cloud’12 will be held Monday and Tuesday, September 24 to 25, in Mannheim.
Online registration is now open for ISC Cloud’12, and there are two ways to save. General advance registration, at a savings of 50 Euros, is open through Saturday, September 15.

The ISC Cloud’12 preliminary program is now online. Around 30 leading experts from academia, research and industry will present their experience and perspectives on HPC and Big Data to an expected 200 attendees. The discussions will include topics such as how to bring massive amounts of data nearer to the computing resources, as well as moving the resource to where the data is generated.

“Following the recommendations of last years’ participants, this year, we have invited expert speakers with real end-user, hands-on experiences reporting on advanced topics, thus providing all attendees with both insight and practical details,” said ISC Cloud General Chair Wolfgang Gentzsch. “What we do best is to unite the academic and industrial communities in a collegial atmosphere and for a common benefit.”
The key topics of this year’s conference are:
• Industrial Clouds — Best Practices
• Research Clouds — User Experiences
• Engineering Clouds — Commercial Software in the Cloud
• Big Data Cloud Computing
• Panel: HPC Cloud Challenges
• Vendor Panel with our Conference Sponsors
• Interactive BoFs on Hot Topics of HPC and Big Data in the Cloud
