  Description:
  Since its inception, SC has established a tradition as the place for scientists, engineers, and managers to see the latest in products, services, and innovations in high performance computing, networking and related disciplines, enabling them and return home with the tools they need to prepare their organizations for the future. Now more than ever, they need to operate as effectively as possible, managing their financial and professional resources to best serve their communities. There is no other event that provides the depth and interaction in a wide range of fields such as information architectures, data storage, analysis and visualization, optical networking, scalable computing, scientific applications and distributed systems. Under the conference theme of "Igniting Innovation," industrial exhibitors will demonstrate the future of computing and networks from the desktop to petaflops.

Backed by the industry's only focused conference program, the exhibit floor gives attendees the opportunity to obtain hands-on experience to back up the wealth of information gathered in the conference sessions. They'll examine the impact of our changing society and growing global marketplace as well as breakthrough technologies for management and support. Conference attendees will search for the tools - your products and services - that will allow them to implement this newfound knowledge on a local scale, in their own facilities.

The gala opening shows the exhibits at their best. It is also one of the best places to mingle at SC, allowing contacts with exhibitors and other attendees alike.
