Are You Ready for Multi-dimensional HPC?

At this year's Altair’s HPC Summit, experts managing and leveraging some of the world's leading HPC systems will share how they're expanding beyond just job and CPU scheduling, accounting for all new dimensions like hybrid and cloud resources, GPUs, software and I/O performance, and how their teams are tapping new trends in machine learning and artificial intelligence to optimize for both time and cost to solution.

Many of our speakers will be available for live Q&A, plus attendees will be eligible to win one of our gift card giveaways. With prizes totaling $2,000 for attendees - you won't want to miss it!

Driving the Future of HPC Convergence 

While software, data, and HPC solutions are converging on infrastructures across the globe, in many ways the workloads teams are tasked with supporting are more specialized than ever – requiring different tools, different throughput demands, and various levels of end-user expertise. 

Presentations will highlight the product or solution innovations made possible by HPC, lifting the hood to share what’s unique or challenging about their workloads, tools, and infrastructure.

Join for Sessions On:

  • I/O profiling  
  • Cloud/hybrid cloud   
  • License management and optimization  
  • Converged HPC job scheduling  
  • ML/AI   
  • …and more!
