WOMEN IN HPC BOF: PATHWAYS AND ROADBLOCKS
10.00am – 12.00 pm, Wednesday 18 November 2015
Venue: Room 13B, Austin Convention Center, 500 E. Cesar Chavez Street, Austin, TX 78701, United States
Within certain sub-disciplines and occupational categories in HPC, women comprise a higher percentage of the population than the overall average. In this BOF, we seek to understand what makes these subfields so successful in attracting women, and how other subfields might emulate their successes.
To take part in the BoF and Workshop please note you will need to register for the appropriate SC15 passes. Early bird registration closes on October 15, so please register soon at http://sc15.supercomputing.org/register.

Following on from the success of the first Women in HPC workshop at SC14 and the follow-up at ISC2015, we are delighted to announce that the third international Women in HPC workshop will take place at Supercomputing 2015.
The workshop aims to address gender issues in HPC research and innovation, the challenges facing women and how gender inequality can impact efficacy of the scientific method and research quality. The workshop will include talks from female early career researchers and invited talks by world-leading women working in the field of HPC, describing the challenges facing women in HPC careers and how to improve the representation of women in supercomputing.
We welcome participation from everyone in the HPC community to discuss the most appropriate and beneficial actions that can be taken to address the gender imbalance in HPC and the strategies that could be adopted to achieve these goals.
