Where Blockchain meets HPC: iEx.ec at the SuperComputing Exhibition (SC16)
We’ve been working hard to present a demo of iEx.ec at the Super Computing Conference taking place in Salt Lake City, November 14–18 2016. Meet us at INRIA booth #615.
iEx.ec aims at building a Blockchain-based fully Distributed Cloud infrastructure. iEx.ec provides distributed applications running on the blockchain a scalable, secure and easy access to the services, the data-sets and the computing resources they need. This technology relies on the Ethereum smart contracts and allows building a virtual Cloud infrastructure that provides high-performance computing services on demand. We’re making blockchain and HPC come together for the very first time at SC, and we’ll love to make you experience it at the INRIA booth #615. Meet us and get your first SC16 special edition token.

Inria is the French public research establishment entirely dedicated to information and communication sciences. For over 40 years, it has supported the economic and social transformations linked with the dissemination of digital technologies. As such, together with its academic and industrial partners, it conducts at the highest international level an increasingly influential activity in fundamental research and technology development. Participating in Supercomputing since 1994, Inria is leading an ambitious research and innovation policy on HPC for over 30 years.
SC16 is the premier international conference showcasing the many ways high performance computing, networking, storage and analysis and lead to advances in scientific discovery, research, education and commerce. The annual event, created and sponsored by the ACM (Association for Computing Machinery) and the IEEE Computer Society, attracts HPC professionals and educators from around the globe to participate in its complete technical education program, workshops, tutorials, a world class exhibit area, demonstrations and opportunities for hands-on learning.
Last year, SC15 gathered more than 12,000 attendees and featured 343 exhibitors from industry, academia and research organizations from 23 different countries.
