The deadline for several exciting SC programs is approaching on July 31. Get your submissions in for Birds-of-a-Feather, Doctoral Showcase, Emerging Technologies, Scientific Visualization Showcase and the HPC Impact Showcase. Notifications are scheduled to be sent by early September. Full details are outlined below:
The Birds-of-a-Feather (BOF) tradition will continue at SC16 with a full schedule of exciting, informal, interactive sessions focused around a variety of special topics of mutual interest. The BOF sessions are among the most interactive, popular, and well-attended sessions of the SC Conference Series. The BOF sessions provide a non-commercial, dynamic venue for conference attendees to openly discuss current topics of focused mutual interest within the HPC community with a strong emphasis on audience-driven discussion, professional networking and grassroots participation.
The Doctoral Showcase provides a unique opportunity for students near the end of their Ph.D. to present a summary of their dissertation research in the form of short talks and posters. Unlike technical paper and poster presentations, Doctoral Showcase highlights the entire contents of each dissertation, including previously published results, to allow for a broad perspective of the work. Submissions will undergo a thorough review process with each submission receiving four reviews.
In the Emerging Technologies track, SC16 will examine innovative solutions that may significantly improve and extend the world of HPC in the next five to 15 years. Consisting of carefully selected exhibits and presentations, Emerging Technologies will showcase technologies that are innovative from industry, government labs or initiatives, and academia, but not yet available from industry as products.
SC16’s Visualization and Data Analytics Showcase provides a forum for the year’s most instrumental movies in HPC. This year, there will be both a live display throughout the conference so that attendees can experience and enjoy the latest in science and engineering HPC results expressed through state-of-the-art visualization technologies and a session dedicated to the best of the submissions.
The HPC Impact Showcase highlights real-world applications of high performance computing (HPC) at companies who are currently employing HPC to advance their competitiveness and innovation in the global marketplace. The Showcase is designed to introduce attendees to the many ways that HPC matters in our world, through testimonials from companies large and small. Rather than a technical deep dive of how they are using or managing their HPC environments, their stories are meant to tell how their companies are adopting and embracing HPC as well as how it is improving their businesses.
