BoF @SC15 – “Recruiting Non-Traditional HPC Users: High-Performance Communications for High-Performance Computing”
When: Thursday, 19
This BoF, “Recruiting Non-Traditional HPC Users: High-Performance Communications for High-Performance Computing,” will bring together leaders from supercomputing centers, universities, industry, and laboratories to discuss the challenges in attracting non-traditional users to supercomputing centers. We will focus our discussion on the sharing of outreach strategies and support mechanisms to engage high-potential user communities currently under represented within HPC centers, e.g., biotechnology, social science, digital humanities, experimental science, etc. The BoF will focus mainly on a lively discussion in which attendees will be encouraged to share their ideas, experiences, and best practices. We will also focus on networking and community building.
