HPC Day 2013 - 6th High-Performance Computing Symposium

The HPC Day within the 42nd Argentine Conference of Informatics aims to bring together researchers, developers, and users of HPC to discuss the ideas and experiences of scientist and practitioners of High Performance Computing in Argentina and Latin America.

The HPC Day will feature invited talks from academy and industry, presenting both mature work and new ideas about the application of high performance computing in research and industrial applications, and round-table meetings for the exchange and dissemination of new ideas, techniques, and research in HPC. This year the HPC Day introduces a Working Breakfast, joining HPC practitioners from the Industry and Academia encouraging collaborations in this field. The event will also present the activities held in the VI Latin American Symposium on High Performance Computing (HPCLatAm2013) and the High Performance Computing School (ECAR 2013), both sponsored by SADIO.
