June is here and before you know it so will the SC16 Poster & ACM Student Research Competition deadline of July 15th. Posters should display cutting-edge research and work in progress in high performance computing, storage, networking and analysis. Posters provide an excellent opportunity for short presentations and informal discussions with Conference attendees and are a great way to advance your career.
In addition to being displayed at the conference, accepted posters will be digitally archived and made publicly available post-SC16. Plus, a “Best Poster Award” will be presented based on quality of research work and quality of poster presentation.
For SC15, 254 detailed poster submissions went through a rigorous review process. In the end, 114 posters were accepted and seven finalists were selected for the Best Poster Award.
Last year, the Best Poster Award went to “Parallelization, Acceleration, and Advancement of Dissipative Particle Dynamics (DPD) Methods” by Timothy I. Mattox and James P. Larentzos, both of Engility Corp.; Christopher P. Stone, Computational Science and Engineering, LLC; Sean Ziegeler, Engility Corp.; John K. Brennan, U.S. Army Research Laboratory; and Martin Lísal, Institute of Chemical Process Fundamentals of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic and J. E. Purkyne University.
ACM Student Research Competition
SC16 will also host the ACM Student Research Competition (SRC). This event will feature posters from undergraduate and graduate students showcasing original student research. An SRC poster may be authored by exactly one graduate student or up to two undergraduate students (optionally with the advisor).
Student authors must be current ACM members. The ACM SRC pre-selection will happen during the poster reception on Tuesday and selected poster presenters will be given the opportunity to present their work in short talks on Wednesday. The ACM SRC committee will select a set of winners based on their poster content and presentation style. ACM’s SRC program covers expenses up to $500 for all students invited to the SRC.
The SC15 ACM Undergraduate Student Research Award first place winner was: “Lessons from Post-Processing Climate Data on Modern Flash-Based HPC Systems” by Adnan Haider, Illinois Institute of Technology. The Graduate Student Research Award first place winner was: “AccFFT: A New Parallel FFT Library for CPU and GPU Architectures” by Amir Gholami, The University of Texas at Austin.
