A charitable, service-based non-profit 501(c)(3) organization (NPO) educating and connecting the High Performance Computing (HPC) user community to state of art technology for the purpose of optimizing business processes and workforce advancement.

Our technology focus includes AI/Machine Learning, Data Science, Cloud Computing, and Visualization utilized in applications in Energy, Life Sciences, Manufacturing & Engineering, Financial Services, Academia, and Government.

SHPCP membership is open to all HPC professionals serving all industries.


The SHPCP was formed by a group of Senior Industry Professionals to provide open forum meetings that address the availability, use and evaluation of existing technology and to keep the HPC user community informed about emerging technology.


To accomplish this the Society was established with the goal to be a vendor neutral, user centric organization. The benefits that will be derived by the members will come from the two-way communications provided through open forum meetings that will bring the HPC community together to share technology, user experiences and maintain dialog among its worldwide membership.
