SC12 Sets Record for Technical Program Submissions
SC12 has received a record number of submissions for technical papers, tutorials, and workshops. We thank the community for their enthusiastic response! For technical papers, SC12 received 465 submissions - a record number of submissions for the SC conference series, and a 32% increase over last year. The technical papers committee is working dilligently to ensure that all papers are reviewed rigorously and the SC12 technical papers program is of the highest quality. Additionally, in response to the dramatic increase in technical paper submissions, the SC12 committee is making a concerted effort to maintain an acceptance rate of about 20% by increasing the number of papers selected for publication over previous year's numbers.
Apply Now: George Michael Memorial HPC Ph.D. Fellowship
The George Michael Memorial HPC Ph.D. Fellowship honors one of the founding fathers of the SC Conference series by recognizing exceptional PhD students
throughout the world with focus areas on high performance computing, networking, storage, and analysis. ACM, the IEEE Computer Society, and the SC
Conference sponsor this award. Fellowship winners will be selected based on their overall potential for research excellence, the degree to which their
technical interests align with those of the HPC community, their academic progress to date (as evidenced by publications and endorsements from their
faculty advisor and department head as well as a plan of study to enhance HPC-related skills), and demonstration of their anticipated use of HPC resources.
Submissions due: July 01, 2012
Technical Posters and ACM SRC Submissions due July 31
Following a long tradition, SC12 solicits technical posters on novel and innovative research for display in a prominent location during the conference.
Poster authors will get the opportunity to discuss poster contents at the Research Poster Reception, and one poster will be selected to receive the Best
Poster Award. ACM student members are encouraged to submit posters to the ACM Student Research Competition (SRC), compete for awards at SC12, and have the
opportunity to join the SRC Grand Finals.
Submissions due: July 31, 2012

Scientific Visualization Showcase Submissions due July 31
The Scientific Visualization Showcase is back for SC12. The Scientific Visualization Showcase will be presented in a museum/art exhibit-style environment
so that attendees can experience and enjoy the latest in science and engineering HPC results expressed through state-of-the-art visualization technologies.
We encourage participation--both in submissions and attendance at the conference--from people and areas that normally do not get involved with SC. The
selected visualizations will be on display during SC12 and will be included in the digital archive.
Submissions due: July 31, 2012

Proposals for Birds-of-a-Feather (BOF) Sessions due July 31
The Birds-of-a-Feather (BOF) program invites you to submit a proposal if you are interested in holding a session that emphasizes audience interaction and
open discussion on non-commercial HPC topics of focused mutual interest and currency within the HPC community. A strong emphasis should be placed on
audience-driven discussion and participation. We expect the number of submissions to exceed the number of available rooms for BOF sessions; submissions,
therefore, will be reviewed by a selection committee for topic, submission quality, audience engagement, and level of interest to the SC community.
Submissions due: July 31, 2012

Call for Submissions to Doctoral Showcase Program
Submissions are now being accepted for the Doctoral Showcase program, which for 2012 has been expanded into two tracks:
- Dissertation Research Showcase: This track provides a venue for Ph.D. students who will be graduating in the next 12 months to present a summary of their dissertation research. It
also provides an ideal opportunity for prospective employers in academia, research laboratories and industry to interact with prospective Ph.D.s.
Everyone attending the conference is encouraged to attend this program. Come to see the latest and greatest dissertation work done by tomorrow’s HPC
- Early Research Showcase: This track provides early-stage research students with an opportunity to present their research and engage with the SC community. The showcase invites
both students who are researching computational techniques and high performance computing, and students applying computational techniques to their
scientific domain. Everyone attending the conference is encouraged to attend this program to engage with future HPC experts and provide valuable
feedback and learn about future research developments.
Submissions due : July 31, 2012

Applications now open for Broader Engagement Program
The Broader Engagement (BE) component of the Communities Program focuses on increasing the involvement of individuals from traditionally underrepresented
groups in the SC'12 conference and in High Performance Computing (HPC). Competitive grants are available to
support travel to and participation in the SC'12 technical program and exhibits.
Applications for the BE program are currently being accepted. Individuals from underrepresented groups in HPC and belonging to any computing-related
disciplines are encouraged to apply. Applicants can either choose to apply under the Standard Track or the Advanced Track. The Standard Track is
intended for newcomers to SC, while the Advanced Track is for returning and/or advanced BE participants who are interested in accessing the
tutorials with partial support from the conference. Detailed information on the BE program is available at: http://sc12.supercomputing.org/content/broader-engagement
Applications Close: August 11, 2012
Submission site: http://submissions.supercomputing.org
HPC Educators Program Application for Travel Support
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
- 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).
Deadline for submissions: September 4, 2012
For more information, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Undergrads Can Apply for Experiencing HPC Program
Applications are now being accepted for the Experiencing HPC for Undergraduates program, which will provide exposure to HPC research topics and techniques to undergraduate students, at the sophomore level and above. The program will introduce students to various aspects of HPC research at the SC12 conference, to make them aware of opportunities to perform research as an undergraduate and potentially in graduate school or in a job related to HPC topics in computer science and computational science. The program covers all conference expenses, including up to $500 for airfare, for each student whose application is accepted.
The deadline to apply is Tuesday, July 31, 2012.
To apply, please use the SC12 submissions site.
