We had the first HPC Advisory Council conference in Brazil. Held together with the Sao Paulo University. We hosted around 70 HPC professionals and 50 students from the University.
The conference was sponsored by Inspur, NVIDIA, SGI, Supermicro and Newwald. InsideHPC covered the event and videos can be found on www.insidehpc.com. The presentations from the conference can be found on http://www.hpcadvisorycouncil.com/events/2014/brazil-workshop/agenda.php
For me it was my first visit in Brazil. Probably would be better to do it one month after (the world cup….) but still, was happy to be there. Great people, great food and increase usage of HPC for many applications.
I want to thank Alexandre Ramos from the University of Sao Paulo that helped us with organizing the conference.
