The HP-CAST Community Meets Again

The HP-CAST Community Meets Again!
HP-CAST is an organization of HP customers and partners who
provide input to HP to increase the capabilities of HP solutions
for large-scale, scientific and technical computing. HP-CAST
provides guidance to HP on essential developments and support
requirements. HP-CAST meetings include briefings by HP
executives, HP technical staff, industry analysts, partner
briefings and lectures by HP customers on their state-of-the-art
computing facilities.

At HP-CAST 16 a special focus will be on the following key topics:

  • Highly energy efficient HPC systems and data-centers
  • Future processors, GPU and chipset roadmaps
  • HPC and Cloud Computing

    Furthermore numerous tutorials and other in-depth sessions
    (SIGs) will address specific HPC topics of interest.
    The spring meeting is scheduled for June 17 & 18, just prior to the beginning
    of the International Supercomputing Conference 2011, thus
    allowing for efficient travel and logistics.

    Registration will be available soon on the HP-CAST web site.
