High Performance Computing (HPC) Symposium
Prepare for the advent of a new age in Supercomputing

In an increasingly interconnected world, finding a solution to a problem needs to factor in a near infinite number of variables. Processing new world scenarios call for robust and powerful systems that are capable of making the difference between success and missed opportunities.

IBM invites you to explore the world of High Performance Computing (HPC) and to find a new way of driving innovation in research and academia.

Join us and find out what our guest speaker Prof. David Keyes, Dean MCSE, KAUST and other IBM and Intel experts have to say about:

- HPC Market and Technology Trends and IBM's and Intel’s technology and strategy for HPC;

- Examples from IBM and customers demonstrating how HPC accelerates research and can help solve critical challenges

- How IBM can collaborate with Academia and Customers in research and development.
