ISC High Performance 2022 exceeded all expectations

ISC High Performance is considered the world’s oldest and Europe’s most significant event regarding high performance computing (HPC), machine learning and high-performance data analytics. After two years of online presence, the conference offered an opportunity for scientists, supercomputing centres, companies, and HPC enthusiasts to meet again.

ISC 2022 introduced the latest advancements in HPC, focusing on all key developments in system design, applications, programming models, machine learning, and emerging technologies. It was held from May 29 to June 2 in the brand new Congress Centre in Hamburg for on-site attendees. Nevertheless, the conference also offered an extensive program for online visitors. This year´s conference exceeded all expectations since it welcomed 3007 attendees. Out of the 137 exhibiting organisations, 125 presented their activities within the booths.

IT4Innovations wasn´t missing among the exhibitors and promoted the activities of the National Supercomputing Center and the projects it is involved in. The Czech National Competence Centre in HPC highlighted its activities thanks to the EuroCC video and the presentation of its success stories. We were distributing leaflets and the visitors to the conference could grab promotional items with the logo of the EuroCC project. Many attendees joined our lucky draw, which awarded three lucky winners with wonderful prizes.

The ISC always includes the announcement of the latest TOP500, Green500, and HPCG lists. The first place went to the Frontier supercomputer, which is the first supercomputer ever to break the magic 1 exaflop level. The second place belongs to the Fugaku supercomputer and the third in the ranking was LUMI supercomputer even though it is using only one-third of its peak performance now. We are excited about this result, and we are proud that thanks to the membership of IT4Innovations in the LUMI consortium Czech scientists will also gain access to this supercomputer.
