An introduction to HPC research topics and techniques await undergraduate students accepted into the Experiencing HPC for Undergraduates program at SC16. The application deadline is July 15, 2016.
Participants in the program—undergrads at the sophomore level and above—will gain a better understanding of opportunities to perform research as an undergraduate and potentially in graduate school. This information also is useful in deciding on career options related to HPC topics in computer science and computational science.
The program contains selected parts of the main SC Technical Program, with several additional elements. Special sessions include panels with current graduate students in HPC areas to discuss graduate school and research, and panels with senior HPC researchers from universities, government and industrial labs to discuss career opportunities in HPC fields.
The program covers travel expenses for students to attend SC16, including registration for the full Technical Program at the conference. To apply, click here and submit a completed application by the deadline of Friday, July 15.
Student-centric programming at SC16 includes professional development programs, opportunities to learn from mentors, and engagement with SC’s technical sessions. By encouraging a strong student community centered around HPC, SC16 helps ease student transitions into the broader professional community.
