Reinventing HPC

Tutorial Submission

The ISC tutorials are interactive courses and collaborative learning experiences focusing on key topics of high performance computing, machine learning, data analytics and quantum computing.

Renowned experts in their respective fields will give attendees a comprehensive introduction to the topic as well as providing a closer look at specific problems.

Tutorials are encouraged to include a “hands-on” component to allow attendees to practice prepared materials.

Please note: the Call for Tutorials is closed!
