For a quarter of a century, the Supercomputing Conference has served as the crossroads for the entire HPC community. From users and program managers to colleagues and vendors...from government to private industry to academia...SC has provided unparalleled cooperation, unequaled collaboration, and unmatched exposure.

And what better place to celebrate our 25th year than in Denver, Colorado? Located near the center of the continental United States, at the convergence of mountain and prairie, where high-rise buildings greet open range and the earth touches the sky, Denver is a community boldly moving into the future.

Spotlighting the most advanced scientific and technical applications in the world, SC13 will bring together the international supercomputing community for an exceptional program of technical papers, tutorials and timely research posters. The SC13 Exhibition Hall will feature exhibits of the latest and greatest technologies from industry, academia and government research organizations; many of these technologies will be seen for the first time in Denver.

Connect with the latest developments in supercomputing through SC13’s diverse programs:

Technical Program

SC’s continuing goal is to provide an informative, high-quality technical program that meets the highest academic standards. The Technical Program is highly competitive and one of the broadest of any HPC conference, with venues ranging from invited talks, panels, and research papers to tutorials, workshops, posters, and Birds-of-a-Feather (BOF) sessions. Whether you are unveiling new research for the first time, or helping teach the HPC body of knowledge to the next generation, being part of the SC technical program is a rite of passage in any HPC career.

Exhibit Hall

Inside the Convention Center, things will be bustling at SC13. We’re expecting more than 350 exhibitors spread over nearly 140,000 square feet of exhibit space. With 26 meeting rooms dedicated to the Technical Program, Exhibitor Forum, Tutorials, Workshops, and HPC Interconnections, and two ballrooms for Technical Program events, there’ll be plenty of space for all of our events, yet laid out in a way that makes it quick and easy to find your way around.

HPC Interconnections

In the world today, HPC brings people together, ideas together, communities together. And it is through the power of community so evident at the Supercomputing Conference that some of HPC’s greatest contributions to life today got their first exposure and traction. Building on that power, SC13 will focus on the increasing integration of HPC into modern life through HPC Interconnections – an enhanced version of the long-standing community elements of SC. HPC Interconnections will help everyone get more out of the conference than ever, providing programs for everyone interested in building a stronger HPC community, including students, educators, researchers, international attendees and under-represented groups.

HPC Interconnections provides a welcoming entry to SC13 for attendees who may be new to the community or the conference. A range of programs are provided to help attendees get the most out of their time at the conference and bring them into the HPC community. HPC Interconnections comprises Broader Engagement, HPC Educators, Mentors & Protégés, a program for international attendees, and programs for students, including the Doctoral Showcase, the Student Job Fair, the Student Cluster Competition, and Student Volunteers. The goal is to ensure that all attendees make meaningful connections to help them during SC13 and after. Please join us.
