=============================================================

Women in HPC will once again attend the Supercomputing conference to discuss diversity and inclusivity topics. Activities  will bring together women from across the international HPC community, provide opportunities to network, showcase the work of inspiring women, and discuss how we can all work towards improving the under-representation of women in supercomputing.

The 7th International Women in High Performance Computing (WHPC) workshop at SC17 in Denver brings  together the HPC community to discuss the growing importance of increasing diversity in the workplace. This workshop will recognize and discuss the challenges of improving the proportion of women in the HPC community, and is relevant for employers and employees throughout the supercomputing workforce who are interested in addressing diversity.

Sessions include:

  • Improving Diversity in the Workplace: What methods have been put in place and tested to improve workplace diversity and inclusion?

  • Career Development and Mentoring: Skills to thrive; sharing your experiences and advice on how to succeed in the workplace.

  • Virtual Poster Showcase: Highlighting work from women across industry and academia.

Call for posters: Now Open!

Deadline for submissions: August 13th 2017 AOE

As part of the workshop, we invite submissions from women in industry and academia to present their work as a virtual poster. This will promote the engagement of women in HPC research and applications, provide opportunities for peer to peer networking, and the opportunity to interact with female role models and employers. Submissions are invited on all topics relating to HPC from users and developers. All abstracts should emphasise the computational aspects of the work, such as the facilities used, the challenges that HPC can help address and any remaining challenges etc.
