Workshop on HPC Education and Training for Emerging Technologies (HETET19)
The HETET19 workshop is an ACM SIGHPC Education Chapter coordinated effort aimed at fostering collaborations among the practitioners from traditional and emerging fields to explore strategies to enhance computational, data-enabled, AI and HPC educational needs. Attendees will discuss approaches for developing and deploying HPC education and training, as well as identifying new challenges and opportunities for keeping pace with the rapid pace of technological advances – from collaborative and online learning tools to new HPC platforms; advanced technology solutions supporting HPC, Accelerated Analytics, and AI applications. The workshop will provide opportunities for: learning about methods for conducting effective HPC education and training for emerging technologies; promoting collaborations among HPC educators, trainers and users; and for disseminating resources, materials, lessons learned and good/best practices.

This half-day workshop is aimed at users, professionals, researchers, scholars, educators, and other interested community members with an active interest in training, educating, using and supporting the HPC community of developers, researchers, educators, and practitioners.

The workshop will include a panel, presentations and lightning talks. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Pedagogical methods/tools for High performance data analytics and cognitive computing
  • Best practices and models for teaching and learning HPC topics and course materials
  • Sustainable educational strategies for HPC education and training
  • Emerging and scalable online environments and tools for HPC education and training
  • Evaluation and assessment of training and instructional materials
  • Legal issues involved in training (e.g. ADA compliance, software licenses, intellectual property rights, etc.)
  • Novel andragogical approaches for training and education
  • Pedagogical methods/tools for non-traditional HPC disciplines
  • Pedagogical methods/tools enabling HPC, Accelerated Analytics, and AI Applications

We invite submissions for full papers and extended abstract lightning talks. All accepted papers and extended abstracts will be considered for publication in a special issue of Journal of Computational Science Education.

Important Dates:

Submission Deadline: April 20, 2019
Notification of acceptance: April 27, 2019
