The IBM HPC Systems Scientific Computing User Group, ScicomP, is an independent, user-supported not-for-profit international organization of scientific/technical users of large IBM systems. ScicomP brings together computational scientists and engineers interested in achieving maximum performance and scalability on all IBM HPC platforms, including Blue Gene and POWER architectures.

Scientists, engineers, and IBM staff will gather in San Francisco to share real-world experiences porting, tuning, and running codes on IBM supercomputers. ScicomP invites participation from anyone who uses or supports large IBM systems for performing scientific calcuations.


  • Network with collegues, computational scientists, IBM technical staff, HPC center staff.
  • Learn about IBM plans for HPC systems and software.
  • Get tips best practices and tips for using IBM compilers, MPI, and productivity tools.
  • Hear about the latest systems and plans from the world's largest supercomputer centers.
  • Special session for HPC center application support issues.

The ScicomP meeting will be co-located with SPXXL. SPXXL is an organization with systems-oriented interests in large-scale scientific technical computing on IBM hardware. Information about the SPXXL meeting will be available on the private SPXXL web site.
