Today the ISC 2016 conference issued their Call for Proposals for their new PhD Forum, which will allow PhD students to present their research results in a setting that sparks the exchange of scientific knowledge and lively discussions. The call is now open and interested students are encouraged to submit their proposals by February 15, 2016.
The PhD Forum will be held on the first conference day, Monday, June 20. It will consist of two parts: a set of back-to-back three-minute lightning talks followed by an hour-worth of poster session. The lightning talks are intended as a quick, to-the-point presentation of research objectives and early results, while the posters will provide more in-depth information as a starting point for deeper discussions.
“Topics may range from performance analysis to optimization, from tools to applications, and from software engineering to hardware architectures. Essentially, all areas covered in the ISC Call for Research Papers are also accepted for the PhD Forum presentations. The organizers strongly encourage submissions by students in an early phase of their PhD work.”
The PhD Forum Program Committee will select one student to receive the “ISC 2016 PhD Forum Award,” after the conference. The winner will receive an Apple iPad, sponsored by the ISC conference organizers.
A number of student travel awards, pending final approval by DFG priority program SPPEXA, will be available to the attendees of the PhD Forum.
Everyone attending the conference is encouraged to attend the PhD Forum to engage with future HPC experts, provide valuable feedback, learn about future research developments, and to fathom promising opportunities for collaboration,
In related news, ISC 2016 has extended the deadline for research papers, which are now due by December 15, 2015.
