ISC STEM Student Day now open for sign-up


18 Apr 2019 Frankfurt - The sign-up for the ISC STEM Student Day programme is now open and the organizers call on regional and international students to apply soon as the programme can only admit a total of 200 participants. The tutorial can only accept 100 students due to space constraints.

This programme, currently third in its series, has so far given close to 350 undergraduate and graduate students an early insight into the field of high performance computing (HPC), and also introduced them to the important players in the sector.

Organisations looking for talent to hire or universities considering candidates for their postgraduate degree programmes benefit from being a part of the ISC STEM Student Day & Gala.

The ISC STEM Student Day & Gala will be held on June 19, kicking off with a morning tutorial on HPC Applications, Systems, and Programming Models, delivered by Dr. Bernd Mohr, a senior scientist at the Juelich Supercomputing Centre. Other key elements of the programme include a tour of the exhibition, the Wednesday keynote address delivered by Dr. Thomas Sterling, and the HPC career fair and networking dinner in the evening.

Interested applicants are encouraged to sign up through the website as soon as possible. Those accepted will receive free admission to the programme as well as the Wednesday conference.

The current applicants are enrolled in various degree programmes, including meteorology, physics, computer science, computer engineering, mathematics, biosciences, biochemistry, machine learning, computational physics, automation engineering, biology, chemistry, climate science, engineering cybernetics, business IT, and molecular biotechnology.

"Every employer in the HPC sector hopes to find qualified workforce, but many STEM graduates are not entering high performance computing, as they aren't all that aware of the career opportunities in this field. There is a misconception that HPC is an old technology. To make it worse, many universities still don't integrate high performance computing as a module in their existing curriculum, which put the students and the HPC sector at a disadvantage", stated Nages Sieslack, ISC Communications Manager.

"When I presented this disparity to the ISC management three years ago, they fully supported me in establishing this programme. As conference organizers, it is our hope to enable more students to experience the conference and the HPC community. Besides providing them free registration, networking opportunities, meals and career advice, we hope to help them achieve a realistic impression of this challenging field."
