HPC: suddenly relevant to mainstream CS education?
SESSION: HPC: suddenly relevant to mainstream CS education?
EVENT TYPE: Broader Engagement, HPC Educator
TIME: 1:30PM - 5:00PM
Significant computer science curriculum initiatives are underway, with parallel and distributed computing and the impacts of multi-/many-core infrastructures and ubiquitous cloud computing playing a pivotal role. The developing guidelines will impact millions of students worldwide, and many emerging geographies are looking to use them to boost competitive advantage. Does this mainstream focus on ubiquitous parallelism draw HPC into the core of computer science, or does it make HPC’s particular interests more remote from the cloud/gaming/multi-core emphasis? Following the successful model used at SC10 & SC11, the session will be highly interactive. An initial panel will lay out some of the core issues, with experts from multiple areas in education and industry. Following this will be a lively, moderated discussion to gather ideas from participants about industry and research needs as well as the role of academia in HPC.
