  • Lev Lafayette on New Developments in Supercomputing

Over the past 33 years the International Super Computing conference in Germany has become one of the world's major computing events with the bi-annual announcement of the Top500 systems, which continues to be dominated in entirety by Linux systems. In June this year over 3,500 people attended ISC with a programme of tutorials, workshops and miniconferences, poster sessions, student competitions, a vast vendor hall, and numerous other events.

This presentation gives an overview of ISC and makes an attempt to cover many of the new developments and directions in supercomputing including new systems. metrics measurement, machine learning, and HPC education. In addition, the presentation will also feature material from the HPC Advisory Council conference in Fremantle held in August.

Lev Lafayette is the Senior HPC Support and Training Officer at the University of Melbourne, where he has been for three years. For eight years prior to that he worked at the Victorian Partnership for Advanced Computing in a similar role. He has been a member of the Linux Users of Victoria as a committee or public officer since 2006.

 

Many of us like to go for dinner nearby after the meeting, typically at Trotters Bistro in Lygon St.  Please let us know if you'd like to join us!

Linux Users of Victoria is a subcommittee of Linux Australia.
