DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS: NOW CLOSED.
A cornerstone of our workshop is inviting submissions from women to present on their work in HPC as a short lightning talk to our attendees. For those who are chosen to present, there will be the opportunity to meet with leaders and employers from across the HPC community at this workshop, giving you an opportunity to discuss your work with them.
Submissions for talks are invited as extended abstracts (up to 2 pages) in any area that utilizes High Performance Computing. Successful authors will be asked to provide a version of their work highlighting its goals, accomplishments and impact to present on no more than three slides. Authors are also expected to give a short lightning talk (3 minutes) at the workshop itself.
We are encouraging women who consider themselves to be ‘early career’ (i.e. still studying or within five years of graduation or transition into the field) to participate, however this opportunity is open to help everyone who feels they may benefit from presenting their work, irrespective of career stage. As HPC is a large community which encompasses many different roles, we welcome both technical and non-technical contributors to submit about their work in order to broaden the knowledge of all those to attend our workshop.
BENEFITS OF PARTICIPATING:
- Networking: build your HPC network, meet peers and potential employers.
- Advice and mentoring: Receive expert advice and mentorship to help prepare for your presentation, including slides, how to structure a lightning talk for effective communication and how to make the most of the networking time afterwards.
