Building the HPC Infrastructure and Community in the Kingdom

Welcome to Saudi HPC/AI Conference 2019
This is the 9th edition of the Saudi HPC/AI Conference. In all its editions, the conference has been the premier regional HPC event where local/international HPC users, experts, and technology providers have been socializing, exchanging business ideas and experience. Traditionally, the conference has been focusing (and will still focus) on topics related to HPC Applications, Big Data, and Analytics. However, due to the importance of the emerging field of Artificial Intelligence, we are adding it to the conference theme as well where many invited talks will focus on emerging AI/ML applications.
