Lev Lafayette on New Developments in Supercomputing

Over the past 33 years the International Super Computing conference in
Germany has become one of the world's major computing events with the
bi-annual announcement of the Top500 systems, which continues to be
dominated in entirety by Linux systems. In June this year over 3,500
people attended ISC with a programme of tutorials, workshops and
miniconferences, poster sessions, student competitions, a vast vendor
hall, and numerous other events.

This presentation gives an overview of ISC and makes an attempt to cover
many of the new developments and directions in supercomputing including
new systems. metrics measurement, machine learning, and HPC education.
In addition, the presentation will also feature material from the HPC
Advisory Council conference in Fremantle held in August.

Lev Lafayette is the Senior HPC Support and Training Officer at the
University of Melbourne, where he has been for three years. For eight
years prior to that he worked at the Victorian Partnership for Advanced
Computing in a similar role. He has been a member of the Linux Users of
Victoria as a committee or public officer since 2006.

Many of us like to go for dinner nearby after the meeting, typically at
Trotters Bistro in Lygon St.  Please let us know if you'd like to join us!

Linux Users of Victoria is a subcommittee of Linux Australia.
