Newsflash 08/2023 –

As the largest annual HPC conference gets set to kick off in the United States, staff members at GCS centres are preparing for an active week of discussions, networking, and presentations.

Representatives of the three centres that comprise the Gauss Centre for Supercomputing (GCS) will once again be traveling to the United States for a week of all things high-performance computing (HPC): the annual International Conference for High-Performance Computing, Networking, Storage, and Analysis (SC23) is an annual event bringing together the international HPC community for a week of presentations, birds-of-a-feather sessions, new product showcases, panels, and more. The event takes place this year Nov. 12–17 in Denver, Colorado.

In addition to staff participation in the SC23 program, all three GCS centres—the High-Performance Computing Center Stuttgart (HLRS), the Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC), and the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ)—will have booth on the SC23 exhibition floor.

JSC will be celebrating the contract being signed for Europe’s first exascale machine, with JUPITER beginning construction in early 2024. LRZ will be joined with other Bavarian partner institutions and hosting a “Bavarian Biergarten” on the exhibition floor that will also showcase some of the new advances coming to the center in the next year. HLRS will be hosting a collaborative stickering project at their booth in anticipation for the official announcement of Hunter, the center’s upcoming next-generation machine. On top of those booth event, the centres have also teamed up this year for a scavenger hunt at our booths, with the winners receiving one of three LEGO® Atari 2600 game sets.

Below you will find a brief overview of each centre’s participation in SC23. You can also keep up with all GCS-related activities surrounding SC23 by following @gcs_hpc on X (formerly Twitter).
