ISC10 declared most successful ever
The 2010 International Supercomputing Conference (ISC10) attracted 1,998 registered participants and 151 of the world's leading supercomputing vendors and research organisations in Hamburg in June.
'When I started this meeting as a small workshop in Mannheim back in 1986, I really had no idea that it would become such an important international meeting place for ideas and innovation,' said ISC general chair Professor Hans Meuer. 'Just five or six years ago we were hoping to someday attract 500 attendees, and now we are at almost 2,000. Best of all, the increase in attendance has also brought an increase in the energy and enthusiasm of the programme.'
Building on 25 years of success, ISC Events will host ISC Cloud ’10, a two-day meeting devoted to cloud computing. The meeting will be held 28-29 October at the Marriott Hotel in Frankfurt, Germany. In addition to an exhibition, the meeting programme will cover topics such as private, public and hybrid models for cloud computing, trust issues in the clouds, scientific cloud computing and migrating large data sets onto a cloud.
In 2011, ISC will be held 19-23 June in Hamburg.
