SC2012 is at the forefront in gathering the best and brightest minds in supercomputing together. SHPCloud workshop will contribute the HPC cloud computing experiences to the continued successes of Supercomputing Conferences.

About SHPCloud'12 Workshop in Supercomputing 2012

SHPCloud'12 is relocated to ACM/IEEE Supercomputing 2012 in Salt Lake City, Utah. Conference dates: November 10-16, 2012.

ABOUT SHPCloud Workshops

HPC Cloud computing offers better resource utilization and more software flexibility to researchers. There are also challenges. These include virtual machine administration complexities and less performance compared to traditional HPC clusters. As a budding community, we are always looking for credible experiences in using HPC cloud for different types of applications.  The SHPCloud workshop is dedicated to disseminate research reports and experiences in HPC Cloud applications.

SHPCloud-2012 is the Second International Workshop of Sustainable High Performance Cloud Computing. The first workshop was held in Banff, Canada, September 2011 in collaboration with HPCC2011.
