The International Supercomputing Conference 2018 (ISC'18) will take place from 24 to 28 June 2018 in Frankfurt am Main. JSC, together with its partners in the Gauss Centre for Supercomputing (GCS) - HLRS (Stuttgart), and LRZ (Garching) - will present its wide-ranging supercomputing activities at the GCS booth (B-1310).

The first module of our new modular supercomputer JUWELS will be presented: a Cluster component with more than 2500 compute nodes, each equipped with two Intel Xeon 24-core Skylake CPUs and 96 GiB of main memory. As another highlight, all visitors to our booth will be invited on a virtual reality (VR) tour with the HTC Vive VR system, with which they can dive into results of HPC simulations from the area of earth system science. Furthermore, news of HPC tools developed in-house, like LLview and Scalasca, will be highlighted. Flyers will present information about JSC's research and support activities, as well as the HPC infrastructure provided to national and international scientists.

JSC staff will co-organize the "International Workshop on OpenPOWER for HPC (IWOPH'18)", organize the BoF "ARM for HPC Co-Design Opportunities", and present the two tutorials "Tutorial on HPC Applications, Systems & Programming Languages" and "Tutorial on Machine Learning & Data Analytics" on the ISC STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) Student Day. Additionally, members of JSC will give several presentations at the conference and will co-organize the tutorial "Hands-on Practical Hybrid Parallel Application Performance Engineering". JSC staff will also be on hand at the booths of PRACE (B-1300), JARA (B-1320) and UNICORE (J-535). Detailed information on JSC's participation can be found at
