During the week of SC, SCinet becomes the most powerful and advanced network on Earth, connecting the SC community to the world. Every year, industry, academia, and government experts volunteer to design, build, and administer the cutting-edge SCinet infrastructure.

SCinet not only provides internet connectivity for conference attendees, it pushes the boundaries of networking technologies and innovations through workshops, demos, and collaborative opportunities.

Immensely powerful, insanely fast
