High Performance Computing Area at EAGE Paris 2017

The Geophysical Industry constantly increases the demands placed on High Performance and Super Computing (HPC) suppliers to process more data faster than ever before; and this trend has become strikingly evident at recent EAGE Meetings. Considering the interest and need in HPC, the EAGE in cooperation with The Society of HPC Professionals (SHPCP) have brought together a group of HPC organizations that will exhibit in a common area in Exhibit Hall and make technical presentations. This theater, with approximately 35 seats, will showcase a state-of-the-art Geoscience Computing solutions. 

The history of the Geophysics has been associated with computing technology from its inception and has consistently provided challenges and opportunities to enhance hardware, software and infrastructure solutions to match the performance and quality of the industry's algorithms, data consumption and exploration advances. Sponsors of the "HPC Focused Group" will deliver presentations in the Theater with daily programs of TECHNICAL content and focused on HPC Topics.

We invite all companies active in this field to participate in the HPC area with a stand and presentations. To sign please return a completed contract to exhibition@eage.org.
