About the HPC Advisory Council
Stanford Conference and Exascale Workshop 2014

The HPC Advisory Council, together with Stanford University, will hold the HPC Advisory Council Stanford Conference and Exascale Workshop 2014 on February 3-5, 2014, at Stanford, California. The conference will focus on High-Performance Computing (HPC) usage models and benefits, the future of supercomputing, latest technology developments, best practices and advanced HPC topics. The conference is open to the public and will bring together system managers, researchers, developers, computational scientists and industry affiliates.

The exascale workshop is a half-day event organized as part of the Thermal and Fluid Sciences Affiliates Program Conference. The objective is to illustrate the vision of exascale scientific computing as it will serve the engineering community. Talks will be given by leaders in the hardware community, representatives of the national laboratories, and engineering firms. The new Stanford Center for Exascale Engineering Computing sponsored by the DOE will also be featured.
