Applications Being Accepted for SC14 BE Program

April 28 — Every November, more than 10,000 of the world’s leading experts in high performance computing (HPC), networking, data storage and analysis convene for the SC conference, the world’s largest meeting of its kind. To help increase the participation of individuals who have been traditionally under-represented in HPC, the SC conference sponsors the Broader Engagement (BE) program. SC14 will be held Nov. 16-21, 2014 in New Orleans. Complete conference information can be found at: http://sc14.supercomputing.org.

Applications are now being accepted for the SC14 BE program, which offers special activities to introduce, engage and support a diverse community in the conference and in HPC. Competitive grants are available to support limited travel to and participation in the SC14 Technical Program. Consideration will be given to applicants from groups that traditionally have been under-represented in HPC, including women, African Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans, Alaska Natives, Pacific Islanders and people with disabilities. We encourage applications from people in all computing-related disciplines—from research, education and industry.

If you don’t need support but would like to participate, please register to attend the BE workshop or volunteer to serve as a mentor in BE’s Mentor-Protégé Program to support newcomers to the conference.
