Society of High Performance Computing Professionals Focus Group and Presentation Theater at Digital Arena # 341

Geophysics has been associated with computing technology from its inception. High Performance Computing (HPC) consistently provides challenges and opportunities to enhance hardware, software and infrastructure solutions to match the performance and quality of the industry’s algorithms, data consumption and exploration advances.

The geophysical industry constantly increases the demands placed on HPC suppliers to process more data faster than ever before.

Considering the SEG’s interest in and need for HPC, the SEG and The Society of HPC Professionals (SHPCP) have brought together a group of HPC organizations to exhibit in a common area of the Exhibit Hall and make technical presentations. This theater will showcase two state-of-the-art 84” LCD panel systems provided by Prysm. 

Several SHPCP ( are regular exhibitors at the SEG Annual Meetings; however, the theater will also include participants that are first-time SEG Exhibitors and will feature new industry technology. Sponsors of this area will deliver presentations in the theater with daily programs. 

The following organizations will be participating in the HPC Focused Group: TBD.
