Riyadh - April 2016

The Saudi Arabian High-Performance Computing (SAHPC) Forum is a premier regional event at which HPC industry leaders, application developers, scientific and engineering users, educators, and economic and institutional planners network on the opportunities and challenges of supercomputing. The SAHPC Forum creates national 'critical mass' that enfolds local HPC communities in Saudi Arabia, facilitating exchanges and fostering new collaborations in business, research, and education. It also helps develop a national identity for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia as an emerging international power in supercomputing.

The main theme of the conference is HPC applications, and the topics up for discussion include:

  • Oil and Gas
  • Bioinformatics
  • Meteorology
  • Security and Defense

King Abdulaziz city for Science and Technology (KACST) is delighted to organize the forum for this year, 2016, which will take place during 19-20 of April. Saudi Arabia’s HPC community will inspire and enable scientific, economic, and social advances through the development and implementation of computing and data-intensive solutions, while the HPC-trained workforce will foster innovation, attract investment, and create jobs yet unimagined.

The SAHPC conference program comprises two days of Keynote speech, talks by HPS experts in above-mentioned themes and plenary discussions. Perhaps the most important parts of the meeting, however, are the breaks and the social events, where networking can be conducted and talks followed up on. During these regular breaks, vendor displays will be available for your perusal. Please study this booklet to maximize your opportunities over two rich days of networking.

Thank you for joining us!
