David Keyes, KAUST professor of applied mathematics and computational science; director of the University's Extreme Computing Research Center; and senior associate to the President of KAUST, will chair the International Supercomputing Conference (ISC) 2020. He will be the first program chair from a Middle Eastern institution, as announced by ISC 2020.
The conference will take place in June 2020 in Frankfurt, Germany, and will tackle high performance computing (HPC) in terms of processing, storage, network, HPC algorithms and applications and the convergence of large-scale simulation with machine learning and big data analytics.
As program chair, Keyes will work with a team of about 100 steering committee and program committee volunteers to define conference topics. He will also lead joint efforts to elevate the value of ISC 2020 within the HPC community.
"ISC is Europe's leading HPC conference, so it is a great opportunity to have technical influence over the meeting as its program chair," stated Keyes.
"HPC evolves as rapidly as any field of scientific endeavor today, making it important for us to be aware of all trends that affect our competitiveness and to network for the placement of our graduates with top HPC partners," he added.
