SESSION: Broadening Engagement Workshop
EVENT TYPE: Broader Engagement, Workshops
TIME: 8:30AM - 5:00PM
SESSION CHAIR: Tiki L. Suarez-Brown
The Broader Engagement (BE) Program Workshop brings an eclectic mix of topics ranging from exascale computing to video-gaming. Some sessions are being organized in association with the HPC Educators Program. Two plenary sessions (8:30 AM to 10 AM on November 11th and 12th) have been organized to introduce the audience to the topics related to cloud computing and exascale computing. The current challenges and future directions in the areas of HPC and Big Data will be also discussed. Participants will receive hands-on experience on OpenMP and directives programming for the accelerators. The main goal of the BE program is to broaden the participation of the underrepresented groups in HPC in general and SC conferences in particular. The workshop will provide multiple opportunities and sessions to interact with a diverse group of participants. The workshop participants also are invited to purchase tickets and attend the resource fair organized by the BE and HPC Educators program.
