power will require new approaches to parallelism, programming models, operating environments, and applications. And assuming we succeed, advancement
won’t stop there, as long as there are harder science problems to be solved.
is a pressing need for our industry to attract incoming talent, to develop new generations of innovators to chart our course over the next horizon.
STEM Student Day, for students in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). The program is free for students and offers an introduction
to the world of HPC and its applications, including industry presentations and a guided tour of the conference expo.
says the ISC STEM Student Day website. “We have created a program to welcome STEM students into the world of high performance computing, [and to] demonstrate
how technical skills can propel their future careers in this area.”
The day program for STEM students includes a peek at the Student Cluster Competition awards and admission to the Wednesday afternoon keynote session by
Thomas Sterling. During the evening, students will hear a welcome address from Toni Collis of the University of Edinburgh Supercomputing Centre, who
is also a co-founder of Women in HPC. The day’s events conclude with a career fair, dinner, and networking.
