Abstract Submission Deadline for Women in HPC Workshop Extended to August 14

July 31 — In collaboration with Supercomputing 2014, the WHPC network are running a half day workshop on Friday 21 November 2014 in New Orleans.

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.
