Workshops to embellish SC13

Registration is now open for SC13, the international conference for high-performance computing, networking, storage, and analysis. In addition to registering for the SC13 Technical Program, conference attendees can also choose from more than 25 workshops organised in conjunction with the conference.

Three of the workshops are affiliated with the SC13 High Performance Computing Interconnections program (HPCI), which provides a welcoming entry to SC13 for attendees who may be new to the community or the conference. Two of the workshops are designed for educators interested in integrating HPC into undergraduate programs, and the third Broader Engagement workshop seeks to increase the participation of individuals who have been traditionally under-represented in HPC.

The three workshops are as follows:

  • The HPC Educators Workshop on Sunday 17 November offers sessions on what to teach and how to teach HPC-related concepts to undergraduate students and early-career graduate students. The Sunday morning session will be 'Supercomputing in Plain English,' providing a broad overview of HPC. The Sunday afternoon session will concern the mapping of CS2013 and NSF/TCPP parallel and distributed computing (PDC) recommendations and resources to core computer science courses.
  • The HPC Educators’ Workshop on Parallel, Distributed and High-Performance Computing in Undergraduate Curricula will be held on Monday 18 November. This workshop on the state-of-the-art in parallel, distributed and high-performance computing education will include contributed  and invited papers from academia, industry and other educational and research institutions.
  • The Broader Engagement Workshop on Sunday and Monday, 17 and 18 November is part of the Broader Engagement (BE) Program, which strives to increase the participation of individuals who have been traditionally under-represented in HPC. The programme offers special activities to introduce, engage and support a diverse community at the conference and in HPC.
