The IBM HPC Systems Scientific Computing User Group
The IBM HPC Systems Scientific Computing User Group,
international organization of scientific/technical users of IBM systems.
ScicomP brings together computational scientists and engineers interested in achieving maximum
performance and scalability on all IBM HPC platforms, including Blue Gene, POWER, Cell, Blade,
and hybrid architectures. At yearly meetings presentations are given by HPC users, HPC center
staff, and IBM staff with a focus on sharing real-world experiences porting, tuning, and running
codes on IBM supercomputers.
ScicomP is a user-supported, not-for-profit organization. ScicomP
invites participation from anyone who uses or supports a large IBM
system for performing scientific calcuations. ScicomP is an open-membership Working
Group of SPXXL and meetings are co-located with SPXXL, the
members-only user group for sites with large IBM systems.
SPXXL membership is not required for ScicomP participation.

meetings are held once a year, in the spring or summer. Every other
meeting is held outside the USA. Sites will be chosen by the members,
at least a year in advance, and earlier if possible. Additional informal
meetings, such as Birds-of-a-Feather sessions at other conferences, may
also be scheduled.
