Invited Talks are a premier component in the SC Conference Program and complement nicely the presentations of the regular Technical Papers Program Speakers include global, bleeding-edge leaders in the areas of high performance computing, networking, analysis and storage. Invited Talks typically describe innovative technical contributions and their application to address the critical challenges of the day.
They offer a broader context and a longer-term perspective than most other sessions. At all Invited Talks, you can expect to hear about pioneering technical achievements, the latest innovations in HPC and data analytics, and efforts to answer some of most complex questions of our time.
Listed below are this year’s all-star Invited Talk speakers as well as links to their respective session descriptions and bios. You certainly do not want to miss any of these engaging, though-provoking sessions.
