Established in 1988, the annual SC conference continues to grow steadily in size and impact each year. Approximately 5,000 people participate in the technical program, with about 11,000 people overall.
SC has built a diverse community of participants including researchers, scientists, application developers, computing center staff and management, computing industry staff, agency program managers, journalists, and congressional staffers. This diversity is one of the conference's main strengths, making it a yearly "must attend" forum for stakeholders throughout the technical computing community.
The technical program is the heart of SC. It has addressed virtually every area of scientific and engineering research, as well as technological development, innovation, and education. Its presentations, tutorials, panels, and discussion forums have included breakthroughs in many areas and inspired new and innovative areas of computing.
High Performance Computing touches lives everywhere – every day. And today, our work in HPC is more essential than ever, driven by an urgent need to provide computational solutions for the world’s greatest challenges from precision medicine and agricultural technologies to autonomous vehicles in smart cities and renewable energy. The impact of HPC goes beyond traditional research boundaries to enhance our daily lives. Be part of the HPC revolution at SC19. The future is now. HPC is now.

HPC is the underpinning for many of today’s most exciting new research areas, from machine learning to artificial intelligence to quantum computing. Working with science teams across disciplines, we are finding new ways to fight disease, combat poverty and homelessness, grow heartier crops, and better predict natural disasters. Bring your passion and energy for HPC to SC20 in Atlanta, where together, we can be more than HPC.
