This week SC14 Blog is featuring an interview with Exhibits Chair Christine Cuicchi from DoD Mod.
The SC14 communications team interviewed Trish to get her perspective on this year’s Supercomputing Conference. “There is a wealth of knowledge from experienced SC volunteers who continue to provide their expertise year after year. The volunteers of SC are the heart of creating the thriving conference each year. My job is to keep them motivated and moving in the same direction.”
The SC14 Broader Engagement Program is designed to increase the participation of individuals who have been traditionally under-represented in HPC. And while the BE program received 153 applications this year, the budget will only allow for 61 participants to attend SC14 in New Orleans. This number is down significantly from 2011, when some 150 participants were able to travel to the conference.
“Over the years I have chaired many parts of the Technical Program, but never had a chance to chair the whole Technical Program. SC plays an important role in the high-performance community. It is through the SC Conference that HPC practitioners get an overview of the field, get to showcase our important work, and network with the community.”
Over at the Data Stack, Mike Bernhardt has posted an interview with Georg Hager, who lead Team Germany to victory in the Intel Parallel Universe Computing Challenge at SC13. People are interested in performance, that’s why they attend SC (mostly). But there is such little competition outside the academic peer review that an idea such as […]
The SC14 conference has posted their full Technical Program schedule. “With SC’s new theme, ‘HPC matters’, SC14 attendees can expect a fresh look at high performance computing. SC14 will not only bring HPC’s emerging techniques and innovative applications to New Orleans, but they will also deliver a stronger message of just how much HPC impacts our lives.”
