Submit Your Best Movies to the Scientific Visualization Showcase!
SC15’s Visualization and Data Analytics Showcase Program provides a forum for the year's most instrumental movies in HPC.  Six finalists will compete for the Best Visualization Award, and each finalist will present his or her movie during a dedicated session at SC15 in a 15-minute presentation. Movies are judged based on how their movie illuminates science, by the quality of the movie, and for innovations in the process used for creating the movie.

Exhibitor Forum Submissions Open Until Monday, September 14

Each year, the Exhibitor Forum provides manufacturers, vendors and HPC service providers with a venue to deliver a technical presentation that is open to both Exhibit and Technical Program attendees. Last year's Exhibitor Forum covered a broad range of topics ranging from cutting-edge hardware to advanced software solutions to data management infrastructures. This year, the Exhibitor Forums will be sharing space and coordinating with the HPC Impact Showcase to provide a consistent attendee experience with a focus on how HPC can transform industry and society.

Due to space constraints this year, there will be less than half the number of slots as last year. Therefore, presentations will be awarded based on technical merit. Click here for more information.

Submissions due: Monday, September 14
