SC16 will continue to broaden its mission to build a strong and diverse HPC student community, at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. A special student-centric program at SC16 will include professional development programs, opportunities to learn from mentors, and engagement with SC’s technical sessions. By encouraging a strong student community centered around HPC, the SC16 Students@SC program helps ease the transition into the broader professional community.
Activities at SC16 will include the Student Cluster Competition, a structured mentor-protégé program, a job fair for students and postdocs, an engaging Student Volunteer program, and other student professional development activities. Within the SC16 Technical Program, the ACM Student Poster Competition and Doctoral Showcase tracks are oriented specifically toward students and will be coordinated with the 2016 Students@SC program.
