Sponsors & Exhibitors
With an average attendance of 350 participants (from over 45 countries), ICCS is well known for its scientific rigor (30% paper acceptance rate), its excellent lineup of keynote speakers (about six per year), and its thematic workshops (more than twenty every year) which, keeping in line with ICCS’ wide-reaching approach, cover a broad range of topics, from Physics, Chemistry and Biology to intricate engineering and financial problems. ICCS therefore offers its sponsors the opportunity to reach an extremely broad audience.
Located in the North Atlantic Sea between Europe and America, Iceland offers manifold memorable sights and experiences. Reykjavík University, located in the heart of the nation’s capital, is a dynamic international university with state-of-the-art facilities and will be a proud host for ICSS 2015.

ACC CYFRONET AGH AND PLGRID CORE
Academic Computer Centre Cyfronet AGH is a centre of excellence empowered by the Committee for Scientific Research to develop and manage the Metropolitan Area Network (MAN) in Kraków and to operate an internal network of high-performance computers (HPCs).
Cyfronet strives to maintain its IT infrastructure at a world-class level, but also to provide it in a way which meets emerging standards. However, our mission goes far beyond than just enabling computing and storage resources and building new network connections.
The Centre is leading the PL-Grid Consortium, which consists of five largest Polish supercomputing centres: ACC Cyfronet AGH in Kraków, ICM in Warsaw, PCSS in Poznań, TASK in Gdańsk and WCSS in Wrocław. The Consortium has launched several projects of key importance for the entire Polish scientific community. The work performed by Cyfronet and remaining HPC centres in Poland led to the creation of a well-developed distributed infrastructure for scientific computing. The infrastructure comprises not only high performance computing hardware, but also mass storage and dedicated tools for deployment of scientific applications on the available resources.
Thanks to longstanding involvement in the development of grid computing infrastructures, Cyfronet is now recognized as a national centre of excellence in the area of grid and cloud computing – an achievement reflected by the new large-scale scientific grant named Distributed Grid Infrastructure Competence Centre – PLGrid Core. This grant represents the next step in the development of the PLGrid Program and extension of the infrastructure towards Cloud Computing and handling Big Data calculations. Its aims not only at extension of hardware and software portfolio, but also dedicated accompanying facilities. One of them – a new backup Data Centre is on future agenda. Its construction in separate geographical location will highly increase security of scientific data sets.
As a result of work carried out in PLGrid Core, a great computing power and huge storage for digital data will be offered to users. Moreover, they will obtain access to a set of new basic services allowing for easier integration of their solutions, specific to the selected fields of science, with the PLGrid infrastructure. These services will include: uniform access to distributed data, a Platform as a Service (PaaS) Cloud, or applications maintenance environment, facilitating computations using Big Data paradigm. In addition, a set of end-user services will be developed, e.g. a computing environment for interactive processing of scientific data, a platform for development and execution of large-scale applications organized in a workflow and an environment supporting data farming mass computations.
The PLGrid Core project has been co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund as part of the Innovative Economy program, including the special purpose grant from the Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education.
