Overview

Since its inception, SC has established a tradition as the place for scientists, engineers, and managers to see the latest in products, services, and innovations in high performance computing, networking, storage and related disciplines, enabling them to return home with the tools they need to prepare their organizations for the future. This conference series has grown to now include researchers, software developers, policy makers, corporate managers, CIOs and IT administrators from universities, industry and government. Now more than ever, they need to operate as effectively as possible, managing their financial and professional resources to best serve their communities. There is no other event that provides the depth and interaction in a wide range of fields such as information architectures, data storage, analysis and visualization, optical networking, scalable computing, scientific applications and distributed systems.

The SC2004 theme, Bridging Communities, ties the program components together and demonstrates how high performance computing, networking and storage touches all scientific disciplines, promotes interdisciplinary projects, affects the educational process through the use of computers in modeling and simulation in the classroom, and solves heretofore unsolvable problems in biotechnology, weather research, astronomy, drug research, wearable sensors and many other applications.

Backed by the industry’s only focused conference program, the exhibit floor gives attendees the opportunity to obtain hands-on experience to back up the wealth of information gathered in the conference sessions. They’ll examine the impact of our changing society and growing global marketplace as well as breakthrough technologies for management and support. Conference attendees will search for the tools---your products and services---that will allow them to implement this newfound knowledge on a local scale, in their own facilities.
