To make SC even more accessible for relevant HPC researchers and technologists with innovative software or hardware, discoveries, or exciting technical content, SC23’s Inclusivity and Exhibits committees have partnered to offer the HPC Illuminations Pavilion.
The cost of exhibit floor space, a booth, and services can quickly add up for many smaller entities. This new opportunity provides free exhibit space (and booth) for up to twenty-four newly established or underrepresented research teams or institutions that need more means to present their work at SC through the usual channels.
SC hopes this new initiative will attract important content that would otherwise go unseen and foster quality discussions and interactions as part of a larger effort to highlight the breadth and depth of the HPC community. Many attendees will attest that SC is a great place to build and strengthen community relationships.
Participating organizations may showcase technical material, presentations, and demos from a kiosk in the HPC Illuminations Pavilion. Areas designed for informal discussions and networking will also be provided. Travel support will be available for a limited number of under-resourced participants. Qualified applicants will be invited to apply for travel funding.
HPC Illuminations Pavilion Kiosk
Rather than just empty booth space, each HPC Illuminations participant will receive a complimentary furnished booth. The booth package includes:
- Cabinet with desktop, stem light, and stools
- Backdrop panel
- Header graphic panel
- Electrical outlet
- Carpeted area
The application process closes on September 29. There is still time. Applications received after August 25 will be considered if any of the 24 allotted spaces remain unfilled.
As part of the selection process, special consideration will be made for applicants from small labs or research centers that have been historically underrepresented at the SC Conference.
Individuals and representatives from not-for-profit and international organizations who actively engage with the HPC community are welcome!
Applicants should not:
- Currently have a booth on the SC23 exhibit floor.
- Have exhibited at SC in the past (first-timers only).
- Be considered an industry exhibitor or start-up.
Applications can be submitted here.
