ABOUT SC06

SC06, the premier international conference on high performance computing, networking, storage and analysis, will convene in November 2006 in Tampa. This year the conference will take its inspiration from Albert Einstein who said "Computers are incredibly fast, accurate and stupid; humans are incredibly slow, inaccurate and brilliant; together they are powerful beyond imagination."

Following the traditions set with the first SC conference in 1988, exciting technical and educational programs, workshops, tutorials, exhibits, demonstrations and many other activities await attendees. SC06 is the one place where attendees can see tomorrow's technology being used to solve world-class challenge problems today.

SC06 will explore the ways in which high performance computing, networking, storage and analysis lead to advances in research, education and commerce. Innovative and diverse technologies are implemented within the HPC world every year. SC06 will introduce a new initiative focusing on those emerging concepts and technologies that have the potential to reshape the HPC landscape, add a new Storage Challenge, extend the education program to support students with learning and physical disabilities, and host an ACM Student Research Competition. The Analytics initiative that was introduced last year will also evolve during the SC06 planning process. The SC conference has grown substantially, with registered attendance at SC|05 approaching 10,000. This attendance provides an excellent forum for researchers to explore ideas and build collaborations.
