As the HPC community begins to show its age, there is a growing need to bring in the bright young minds that will be tomorrow’s supercomputing leaders.
At SC14, the Experiencing HPC for Undergraduates Program provides undergraduate students at the sophomore level and above with exposure to HPC research topics and techniques .
The Program introduces various aspects of HPC research at the SC14 Conference to increase awareness of opportunities to perform research as an undergraduate and potentially in graduate school or in a job related to HPC topics in computer science and computational science. The Program contains selected parts of the main SC Technical Program, with several additional elements. Special sessions include panels with current graduate students in HPC areas to discuss graduate school and research, and panels with senior HPC researchers from universities, government and industrial labs to discuss career opportunities in HPC fields.
Applications for the Experiencing HPC for Undergraduates Program are due June 15, 2014.
