BoF on High Performance Communications for HPC, Tuesday 24 June 2014, 10:00-11:00

The next BoF of the hpc-hpc Community will take place at Leipzig-ISC14:

BoF 07: High Performance Communications for High Performance Computing
Hall 4
Tuesday, June 24, 2014
10:00 am – 11:00 am

We will adress the following topics:

Engage – (“Engaging for HPC”)

An important role of our communication activities is to engage “people” (our stakeholders) to what our centers and the scientists are doing. The discussion is somehow a precursor of the subject of SC14 that will be about hpc matters.


How could we additionally  promote our communication activities?
For example when an organization participates in a conference like ISC, what could be the useful tools the conference should make available, like virtual press box, blog site, social media?
