Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The twelfth international Women in HPC workshop has issued its Call for Posters. The half-day WHPC workshop takes place June 25 at ISC20 in Frankfurt, Germany.

We are encouraging women who consider themselves to be ‘early career’ (i.e. still studying or within five years of graduation) to participate, however this opportunity is open to help everyone who feels they may benefit from presenting their work, irrespective of career stage.

Benefits of participating include:

  • Present: successful authors will present their work in a lightening talk at the workshop to an HPC audience, including peers and leading women across the international HPC community. Exclusive to ISC20 you will also have the opportunity to present your poster as part of the main ISC20 poster program.
  • Networking: build your HPC network, meet peers and potential employers.
    Advice and mentoring: Receive expert advice and mentorship to help prepare for your poster and presentation, developing skills for the future.
  • ‘Skills to thrive’ in your career. Attend ISC20 and join over 3,500 people to learn about the variety of activities and opportunities in the international high performance computing community.

This workshop provides leaders and managers in the HPC community with methods to improve the inclusion and retention of diverse teams and also to provide early-career women with an opportunity to develop their professional skills and profile. Following the overwhelming success of the 2019 WHPC workshops we will once again discuss methods and steps that can be taken to address the under-representation of women from all backgrounds, in particular, by discussing the following topics:

  • Being part of the solution: instructions for advocates and allies
  • Putting in place a framework to help women take grow their careers
  • Explore pathways to leadership positions

Submissions are due March 2, 2020.
