The Exhibitor Forum furnishes manufacturers, vendors, and HPC service providers with a venue to deliver technical presentations open to all conference attendees. It is a great opportunity to showcase a technology or use case to a large audience outside the confines of an exhibit space.

Sessions will include topics at the forefront of HPC such as data, HPC services, usability, and networking. The Exhibitor Forum topic areas are:

  • Hardware and Architecture
  • Moving, Managing, and Storing Data
  • Effective Application of HPC
  • Software for HPC
  • HPC Futures and Exascale
  • Networking
  • Artificial Intelligence and Analytics

The Exhibitor Forum is an important opportunity for all attendees, and our exhibitor community is at the heart of every SC conference. We appreciate your participation and support and look forward to offering exciting Exhibitor Forum sessions this year.




Please provide a short presentation abstract of no more than 150 words. You may upload an optional PDF file to supplement your submission. This can be a white paper, a presentation, or other material. Please do not submit company-confidential information, since this file will be disseminated to the review committee.

Exhibitor Forum submissions will be reviewed and chosen based on review score and how well the abstract fits with the topics above. All other factors, including order of submissions, will have no bearing on acceptance. Late submissions will not be accepted. The deadline for abstracts is Friday, August 3, 2018, 11:59 pm AoE. Each accepted presentation will be scheduled in a 30-minute slot on Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday morning of the conference.
