Women in HPC - 16th Annual Workshop at SC23 - Denver, Colorado

Fostering a diverse and inclusive HPC community

The WHPC workshop aims to raise awareness and address issues around diversity and inclusion within the HPC community and workforce. Traditionally, our workshop series has focused on gender diversity and issues primarily facing women. New this year, we will have an increased emphasis on diversity and inclusion of both women and men from under represented groups. We hope that by explicitly broadening our scope, we can increase participation from other minority groups and particularly those individuals who feel marginalized across multiple

This year WHPC@SC23 will focus on the following topics:
• Improving diversity and inclusion for all in the HPC workforce
• Building a deeper understanding of what diversity, equity, and inclusion means for different groups
• Strategies for recruitment, retention, and success
• Building community through real-time networking
• Learning from, and valuing, different experiences and career paths
We will also include short lightning talks by early career researchers from under represented groups.

Call for Posters: COMING SOON

Call for posters: COMING SOON

This year we are welcoming women who are early in their career to present their work in HPC as a poster.  These posters will be featured as part of our workshop program, and will also include the opportunity to meet and network with leaders and employers from across the HPC community.

Submissions for posters are invited as extended abstracts (max. 500 words) and a poster (draft format is acceptable) in any area that utilises high performance computing.

Once accepted, presenters will be provided the opportunity to work with a mentor to aid in the creating a final, printable poster to take and display (details forthcoming) at the event as well as the opportunity to polish their abstract and prepare to make the most our networking opportunities.

Please note, the poster session does require travel to the SC23 conference.  Those authors who are successful must be able to travel to Denver, Colorado to present.

We are encouraging women who consider themselves to be ‘early career’ (i.e., still studying or within five years of graduation) to participate, however this opportunity is open to help everyone who feels they may benefit from presenting their work, irrespective of career stage.


  • Present: Successful authors will present their work in a supportive environment, including an audience of peers and leading women across the international HPC community.
  • Networking: build your HPC network, make new contacts and chat with potential employers.
  • Advice and mentoring: Receive expert advice and mentorship to help prepare for your presentation, including slides, how to deliver effective, in-person communication and how to make the most of the networking time available.


Submissions are invited on all topics relating to HPC from users, developers, projects and beyond. All abstracts should emphasise the computational and/or theoretical aspects of the work, such as the facilities used, problem/issue being addressed, the challenges that HPC can assist in resolving, and any remaining issues or future plans, etc.

You will be making a submission through the SC Linklings account.  Please note, if you have not already done so, you will need to create an account on their service in order to submit.  Once your account is created you can use it for this, and all future SC submissions.
