SC12 will continue the tradition of offering a high-quality education program, providing interested attendees with the opportunity to learn from and interact with internationally recognized experts teaching undergraduate and early career students in all areas of computational science and engineering, computer science and engineering, high performance computing, networking, and storage.
Competitive grants are available to support travel to and participation in SC12 and will cover the following:
- SC12 Education and Technical Programs conference registration fees waived
- Round-trip airfare purchased through SC travel system
- Conference-paid hotel for six nights in a shared double room
- A meal stipend and incidentals for the duration of the stay (not to exceed six days).
Special consideration will be given to applicants from post-secondary educational institutions that traditionally have been underrepresented in HPC, but are aspiring to introduce HPC into classrooms.
Highest consideration will be given to teams of 2-3 faculty from a single institution who apply together and demonstrate institutional interest to support HPC curriculum development (a signed letter from the department head will satisfy this requirement).
Grant recipients are expected to attend the entire SC12 conference from Sunday through Thursday. Accepted grant recipients will be required to provide a signed letter from their department head or other person in authority stating that they have leave to attend the entire Education Program.
To assist instructors with teaching responsibilities at their institutions during SC12, the HPC Educators Program is planning to provide an quiet area and remote teaching technology (such as Adobe Connect or WebEX) to allow instructors to remotely conduct their classes while attending SC12.
