Tutorials Submission

PLEASE NOTE: The Call for Tutorials is currently open for submission

The ISC tutorials are interactive courses that focus on ISC key topics. Renowned experts in high performance computing, machine learning, data analytics, and quantum computing will give attendees a comprehensive introduction to the subject and provide a closer look at specific problems. Tutorials are encouraged to include a “hands-on” component to allow attendees to practice prepared materials.

Submitted tutorial proposals will be reviewed by the ISC 2023 Tutorials Committee, which is headed by Suren Byna, Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, USA, as chair.
