The SC Technical Program is highly competitive and one of the broadest of any HPC conference. Traditionally, the Program includes invited talks, panels, research papers, tutorials, workshops, posters, and Birds of a Feather (BoF) sessions. SC16 will also be launching new initiatives focused on big data and analytics as well as innovative new technologies in HPC. Alongside the traditional program elements that our community has come to rely upon, SC16 will continue to be HPC’s most informative, exciting, and stimulating event of the year.
Whether unveiling new research for the first time, or helping teach the HPC body of knowledge to the next generation, the SC Technical Program is a rite of passage in any HPC career. This year every aspect of the SC16 Technical Program is being rigorously peer reviewed—be sure to pay close attention to submission dates, as some have moved to accommodate our expanded focus on peer review.
In addition, SC16 will continue the Conference’s emphasis on education. The SC Technical Program encourages submissions that address the education and development of a larger and more diverse HPC workforce. Papers, panels, workshops, and tutorials on HPC education, training, and professional development are invited, especially those fostering the sharing and dissemination of quality materials and best practices.
NEW! State-of-the-Practice Track
Innovation is the heart of HPC; it’s what empowers our community to push the frontiers of science and engineering. SC has always been the home for leading research in HPC. But traditional research captures only a small part of the innovation driving our community forward. Each year SC brings together thousands of individuals from around the world who are the ones responsible for building and delivering leading-edge capabilities to HPC users.
SC16 marks the beginning of a multi-year emphasis on advancing our community’s state-of-the-practice. A new program track will include all aspects related to the practical use of HPC, including infrastructure, services, facilities, and large-scale application executions. The state-of-the-practice track will include special sessions, papers, panels, workshops, and tutorials that develop and share best practices. Submissions are encouraged from all areas of practice (e.g., system and center determination).
