Call for Papers: Women in HPC Workshop for early career researchers in HPC, in collaboration with ISC High Performance 2015
15 May 2015 Frankfurt - The Women in HPC Workshop will bring together female early-career researchers with a focus on European participation, providing them with an opportunity to showcase their work and to meet role models and peers in an environment designed to move beyond the stereotype of HPC as a male-dominated field. It will open with an introduction to current research by the Women in HPC network, the demographics of the HPC community and the different experiences of men and women in the field.
Building on the first workshop at SC14, PRACE will also host a panel discussion, focusing on "How can women fulfill their dreams in HPC, combining work with having a family and working in a male-dominated environment?"
As part of the workshop PRACE will be inviting submissions from female early career researchers - papers or posters - to present their work in a supportive environment that promotes the engagement of women in HPC research and applications, providing opportunities for peer to peer networking and the opportunity to interact with female role models.
Applicants must be female and either PhD candidates or early career researchers who have been awarded their PhD within 5 years of 1 July 2015.
Submissions will be invited for the following categories:
- Extended abstract (max 500 words) for a hot topic 20 minute presentation on research in any area that utilises high performance computing;
- Short abstract (max 250 words) for a poster in any area that utilises high performance computing.
The deadline for submission is 1 June 2015, 5pm GMT.
