The organizers of ISC High Performance are pleased to announce the selection of Prof. David Keyes of the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) in Saudi Arabia, as the ISC 2020 Program Chair. This appointment continues the internationalization of ISC High Performance with its first Program Chair from the Middle East.

We are happy to announce two papers have been chosen as finalists for this year’s Hans Meuer Award, which honors the most outstanding research paper submitted to the ISC High Performance Conference. The award was introduced in 2015 in memory of the late Dr. Hans Meuer, general chair of the ISC conference from 1986 through 2014, and co-founder of the TOP500 project.
