Panels at SC13 will be, as in past years, among the most important and heavily attended events of the conference. Panels will bring together the key thinkers and producers in the field to consider in a lively and rapid-fire context some of the key questions challenging HPC this year.

Panels bring a rare opportunity for mutual engagement of community leaders and broad mainstream contributors in a face-to-face exchange through audience participation and questioning. Surprises are the norm at panels, which make for exciting and lively hour-and-a-half sessions. Panels can explore topics in depth by capturing the opinions of a wide range of people active in the relevant fields. Panels represent state of the art opinions, and can be augmented with social media, twitter and video feeds, and even real-time audience polling. Please plan on attending one or more of the panel offerings at SC13. We look forward to your help, through your participation, in making panels at SC13 a major success and lots of fun.
