Women in HPC on camera and cover!

In 2015 PRACE in collaboration with Women in HPC will publish 2 magazines entirely dedicated to Women in HPC: the first one in the run-up to PRACEdays15 in May 2015 where a special satellite event with Women in HPC will be organised, and the second one as a special edition of the PRACE Digest to be launched at SC15 in Austin in November 2015.

The cover of at least one of these magazines will include a mosaic or collage of pictures of women working in HPC in Europe, and we need to collect as many photographs as possible.

PRACE invites all women working in HPC in Europe to send a photo of themselves to Tiina Leiponen (Tiina.Leiponen@csc.fi) and / or Marjolein Oorsprong (M.Oorsprong@staff.prace-ri.eu).

Send your own and invite your colleagues to join in submitting photographs!

Photos can either be selfies or “official” photos from your organisation (so typically head-only photos) and should be sent with the following information:

  • Name and title of the person
  • Institution or organisation name
  • Country of work
  • Nationality
  • Area of work > you don’t have to be a scientist! Anyone working in any department, group or industry sector that uses HPC technologies, from small clusters to large supercomputers, is invited to join in.
  • PRACE staff or user of PRACE resources (Yes or No)

We will use the photographs only for this one purpose. Please state explicitly in your e-mail that you allow PRACE to use your photo for the covers of these two publications. You can use the standard sentence: “I hereby grant PRACE aisbl the right to use my photo for the cover of the two Women in HPC themed magazines (one for PRACEdays15 and one PRACE Digest in November 2015)
