SC'17: HPC Connects


Sunday, November 12, 2017 to Friday, November 17, 2017


Each program in the SC Conference is dedicated to showcasing work in high performance computing, networking, storage and analysis by the international HPC community. The core of the Conference is the Technical Program with peer-reviewed content for every track; a series of Student Programs to engage and foster the next generation of HPC professionals; community awards to honor researchers in the field; and the fastest research network, SCinet, built to support high performing applications and demonstrations during the Conference.

Technical Program

The SC Technical Program is highly competitive and one of the broadest of any HPC conference. Traditionally, the program includes invited talks, panels, research papers, tutorials, workshops, posters, and Birds of a Feather (BoF) sessions. 


Each year, SC showcases not only the best and brightest stars of high performance computing, but also its rising stars and those who have made a lasting impression. SC Awards provide one way these individuals are recognized. 


The SC17 conference continues its mission to build a strong and diverse HPC student community at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, through professional development programs, opportunities to learn from mentors, and engagement with SC’s technical sessions. By encouraging a strong student community centered around HPC, the SC17 Students@SC program helps ease the transition into the broader professional community. 


Since its inception in 1991, SCinet has been SC’s research network that pushes the boundaries of networking technologies and innovations through various workshops, demos, and activities, in addition to operational services necessary to provide conference attendees with connectivity to the commodity Internet and to many national R&E backbones.
