Please find below a message from Gilad Shainer - Chairman of the HPC-AI Advisory Council.
On behalf of the HPC-AI Advisory Council, I regretfully must join in postponing group-based gatherings as a result of the growing concerns around COVID-19 globally.
For over a decade we have looked forward to and enjoyed gathering together to share all new insights, works and collaborations occurring across the HPC community. It is in consideration for everyone’s well-being this year that we have decided to cancel the 11th Annual Swiss Conference and HPCXXL User Group.
Please accept our sincere apologies for any inconvenience as a result, and our profound gratitude for your understanding and support! Everyone registered for the conference will receive a full refund which CSCS will initiate in the coming days. Please allow for at least a week for the refund which will be issued to the same card used for registration.
To our 2020 sponsors, we will be contacting you in a separate follow-up, but we would like to acknowledge your generous support and thank you all … AWS, DDN, IBM, Intel, Lenovo, Mellanox, NVIDIA and X-ScaleSolutions. We also want to thank all the brilliant SME presenters, as well as the HPCXXL Board and our amazing collaborative host CSCS, and particularly Hussein Harake, Tatjana Ruefli and Raluca Hodoroaba for their incredible efforts that make each conference a success!
Over the coming months we will regroup to determine new dates in March/April 2021. We are truly grateful for your continued consideration and support and look forward to our next gathering. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
