Call For Papers ISUM2017, 8th international supercomputing conference in Mexico

The organising committee of the International Supercomputing Conference in Mexico (ISUM) is delighted to announce ISUM 2017 and invite participation by research paper presenters and/or poster presenters. The meeting celebrates new conditions for high-performance computing (HPC) in Mexico. New HPC laboratories are up and working, and Mexico is back on the list of the 500 most powerful supercomputers in the world and continues to grow its HPC capacity. Given this growth, ISUM 2017 is seeking for research works that are being conducted in Mexico and abroad.

One of the main goals of the ISUM2017 is to open the possibilities for a wide interchange of ideas, to spread new tendencies in HPC; to present new results of scientific research obtained using supercomputing support as well as to explore new topics such as big data, analytics, IoT, smart cities and storage and analysis. ISUM 2017 gives the opportunity to listen to plenary talks by world leaders of HPC. Moreover, one of the most important motivations of the meeting is to open a general communication forum with the industry for a high-level discussion with relevant subjects as innovation, development, and research.

ISUM2017 keeps in mind the importance of professional development of human resources and outreach. To accomplish that, we are offering five trending topic workshops, and several parallel events promoting HPC among youth and women in information technologies.

We appreciate your participation, and willingness to present your latest research. Papers are solicited on the following and related topics:

Cluster Grid and Cloud Computing for Architectures in Industry.
Applications for Science, Engineering, Health, Scientific Visualization, Simulation and Modeling.
Parallel Processing , Algorithms and Techniques in GPGPU and CPU.
Tools and Environments for High Performance System Engineering, Software Tools, Programming Tools, Virtualization.
Systems to solve Complex problems in Academic and Scientific Research fields.
Emerging and New Technologies for Petascale / Exascale Technologies.
Green Computing.
HPC and Big Data and Analytics.
HPC Storage and Analysis.
HPC and Smart Cities.
HPC and Internet of Things (HPC-IoT).
HPC and High Speed Networks.
HPC for Business Computing.
HPC for Oil & Gas Industry.

Invitation to first GÉANT cloud workshop

You are invited to register for the first GÉANT cloud workshop, which will be hosted by GARR in Rome on 13-14 October, and co-located with SIG-MSP (Special Interest Group on Management of Service Portfolios) which meets on 12-13 October. Within GÉANT, European NRENs (national research and education networking organisations) have been collaborating on cloud computing for several years. Cloud services are in high demand and NRENs are in a natural position to deliver such services with the right conditions: easy, secure and well integrated with the research and education community. We have reached an important junction in our work. With many services now available, the question is: how will NRENs make these available to their communities? This will be the primary focus of the first GÉANT cloud workshop, where an optimal delivery and adoption plan will be prepared.
