SIGHPC's flagship conference has been held every November for over 30 years.
Established in 1988, SC: The International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis is co sponsored by ACM and IEEE-CS, with SIGHPC and SIGARCH overseeing it on behalf of ACM.
Approximately 5,000 people participate in the technical program, with about 12,000 attendees overall. SC has built a diverse community of participants including researchers, scientists, application developers, computing center staff and management, computing industry staff, agency program managers, journalists, and congressional staffers. This diversity is one of the conference's main strengths, making it a yearly "must attend" forum for stakeholders throughout the technical computing community.
SC's technical program has addressed virtually every area of scientific and engineering research, as well as technological development, innovation, and education.
This year's conference is SC21, and will take place in St. Louis, 14-19 November 2021. While you're there, don't miss the SIGHPC-affiliated workshops. Their proceedings will be published by ACM, and will be available to SIGHPC members through the ACM Digital Library.
