The HPC Impact Showcase highlights real-world applications of high performance computing (HPC) at companies who are currently employing HPC to advance their competitiveness and innovation in the global marketplace.
The Showcase is designed to show attendees the many ways that HPC matters in our world, through testimonials from companies large and small. Rather than a technical deep dive of how they are using or managing their HPC environments, their stories are meant to tell how their companies are adopting and embracing HPC as well as how it is improving their businesses.
Whether you are new to HPC or a long-time professional, you are sure to learn something new and exciting in the HPC Impact Showcase. Presentations will be framed for a non-expert audience interested in technology, and will discuss how the use of HPC has resulted in design, engineering, or manufacturing innovations.
The Showcase runs Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoons and consists of invited presentations from leading HPC practitioners from industry. The Showcase is open to all SC16 attendees with any type of badge.
