The International Supercomputing Conference 2017 (ISC’17) will take place from 18 to 22 June 2017 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 (#1310). At this year’s ISC, GCS will celebrate its 10th anniversary with a Happy Hour at its booth on Tuesday, June 20, 16:00 - 18:00. All partners and friends are invited to join in.

JSC and its partner NVIDIA will demonstrate an easy-to-use workflow from simulation data to virtual reality (VR) helping scientists to visualize their results in VR. JSC will present this powerful solution combining the visualization software ParaView and the VR system HTC Vive in a live demo. Furthermore, JSC will showcase LLview, the comprehensive interactive monitoring software for supercomputers developed inhouse. A wide spectrum of scientific results obtained with Jülich supercomputers will be exhibited in the form of videos and animations. Flyers will present information about JSC’s research and support activities as well as the HPC infrastructure provided for national and international scientists.

JSC staff will co-organize the workshops "Experiences on Intel Knights Landing at the one-year mark", "Quantum Annealing & Its Applications for Simulation in Science & Industry" and the "Second International Workshop on OpenPOWER for HPC (IWOPH’17)". Furthermore, members of JSC will speak in the Birds-of-a-Feather sessions "POP Improves HPC Applications" and "Towards Addressing Exascale I/O Requirements & Challenges".

Additionally, they will give several presentations at the conference and will co-organize the tutorial "Hands-on Practical Hybrid Parallel Application Performance Engineering". Members of JSC will also be on hand at the booths of PRACE (#1201), JARA (#1320) and UNICORE (#535).
