As part of the Technical Program, 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.
Submissions will be accepted for the Dissertation Research Showcase track for Ph.D. students who will be graduating in the next 12 months, i.e., before the end of November, 2017. This track provides a venue for Ph.D. students to present a summary of their latest and systematic dissertation research. It provides an opportunity to educate junior graduate students working in high performance computing areas. Moreover, this program provides an ideal opportunity for prospective employers in academia, research laboratories and industry to interact with prospective Ph.D.s.
Students are asked to submit the following:
- A four-page summary of their research that includes problem statement, major research highlights, and references;
- A poster draft, which is expected to be a single page and must fit on a 4-feet tall x 8-feet wide display board (PDF format).
- A list of the student’s conference/journal publications for consideration by the Doctoral Showcase committee.
The authors of the accepted submissions will be invited to give presentations at the SC16 conference. Submissions to this program may also be submitted to the SC16 ACM Student Research Competition posters track or published in other venues.
Everyone attending SC16 is encouraged to attend this program. Come to see the latest and greatest dissertation work done by tomorrow’s HPC experts!
