For a quarter of a century, the Supercomputing Conference has served as the crossroads for the entire HPC community. From users and program managers to colleagues and vendors...from government to private industry to academia...SC has provided unparalleled cooperation, unequaled collaboration, and unmatched exposure. And what better place to celebrate our 25th year than in Denver, Colorado? Located near the center of the continental United States, at the convergence of mountain and prairie, where high-rise buildings greet open range and the earth touches the sky, Denver is a community boldly moving into the future. Spotlighting the most advanced scientific and technical applications in the world, SC13 will bring together the international supercomputing community for an exceptional program of technical papers, tutorials and timely research posters. The SC13 Exhibition Hall will feature exhibits of the latest and greatest technologies from industry, academia and government research organizations; many of these technologies will be seen for the first time in Denver.
