Apply Now for the PEARC17 Student Program

The PEARC17 conference encourages undergrad students to apply for their student program, which will bring together researchers, students, and prospective users from under-represented groups and new disciplines. Formerly known as the XSEDE Conferene, PEARC17 takes place July 9-13 in New Orleans.

PEARC17 provides students with a range of opportunities in the Technical Program and in targeted student activities. For all student attendees, PEARC17 will include a one-day intensive collaborative modeling and analysis challenge; a session on careers in modeling and large data analytics; a mentorship program; and opportunities for students to volunteer to assist with conference activities. Participation from traditionally under-represented communities including women, minorities, and people with disabilities, is strongly encouraged.

Opportunities for financial support for student contributors are now available, thanks to support from XSEDE and the San Diego Supercomputer Center, and through the fundraising efforts of STEM-Trek and Virginia Tech! Submit your student paper or poster, then apply for financial support.

The Student Volunteer Program is another great way to get a behind the scenes look at conference activities and network with other students who are passionate about advanced research computing. As a student volunteer, you will have an all-access pass to the conference program and tutorials. By helping to support the conference, you will have a unique opportunity to meet and learn from leading researchers, professionals, and educators. Students with a passion for leadership and service are encouraged to apply this exclusive opportunity!

Applications are due May 25. Students must be enrolled in a full-time undergraduate or graduate program during the 2016-2017 school year to apply.
