Each year, SC provides the leading technical program for professionals and students in the HPC community, as measured by impact, at the highest academic and professional standards. The Program is designed to share best practices in areas such as: algorithms; applications; architectures and networks; clouds and distributed computing; data analytics, visualization, and storage; machine learning and HPC; performance; programming systems; system software; and state of the practice in large-scale deployment and integration.

We have kept as many elements of the in-person program as possible, though we have shuffled things around a bit to allow for maximum attendance, and in recognition of the challenges in our attendees’ schedules during the pandemic.
