/ ISM Workshop: Statistical approach for IR (Institutional Research)

Oct. 5th-6th, 2016, The National Art Center, Tokyo




ISM HPCCON 2016

The second ISM High Performance Computing Conference / ISM Workshop: Statistical approach for IR (Institutional Research) will take place at The National Art Center, Tokyo, Japan, 5-6 October 2016.The conference aims at promoting to break new ground of science. Importance of IR is increasing in academia of recent Japan.Various problems are being discussed by researchers and practitioners of IR. At the same time, Graph analytics is growing rapidly in HPC. It is our conviction that Graph analytics will offer effectiveness for IR area, especially scientific performance evaluation. A number of technical talks and tutorials will be given during the conference by researchers from various fields. We hope that this conference will lead to a new interdisciplinary research.
