Doctoral Showcase Program

Submissions are now being accepted for the Doctoral Showcase program, which for 2012 has been expanded into two tracks:

  • The Dissertation Research Showcase track for Ph.D. students who will be graduating in the next 12 months, and
  • The Early Research Showcase track for Ph.D. and master’s students who are in the early stages of their research.

Dissertation Research Showcase
The dissertation research of Ph.D. students in high performance computing, networking, storage and analysis will be spotlighted in the Doctoral Showcase program. This track provides a venue for Ph.D. students who will be graduating in the next 12 months to present a summary of their latest and systematic dissertation research. It provides an opportunity to educate junior graduate students working in high performance computing areas. This program also provides an ideal opportunity for prospective employers in academia, research laboratories and industry to interact with prospective Ph.D.s. Students are asked to submit a two-page summary of their research, publications list and three slides on their major results for consideration by the Doctoral Showcase committee. These accepted Ph.D. students will be invited for presentations at the SC12 conference. Everyone attending the conference is encouraged to attend this program. Come to see the latest and greatest dissertation work done by tomorrow’s HPC experts.

Early Research Showcase
The Early Research Showcase track provides early-stage research students with an opportunity to present their research and engage with the SC community. This track allows students in the first three years of their Ph.D. to present promising early-stage research, whilst encouraging conversations with SC experts. The format of this track is a poster exhibition that will be co-scheduled with the Dissertation Research Showcase. The showcase invites both students who are researching computational techniques and high performance computing, and students applying computational techniques to their scientific domain. Students are asked to submit a one-page summary of their research. Participating students are encouraged to use the poster session as a forum to introduce new approaches, discuss new technology, learn about relevant literature or define future research goals. 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. The Early Research Showcase is an evolution of the Early Adopters Ph.D. Workshops (SC09 to SC11).

The submission deadline for both tracks is 23:59 ET Tuesday, July 31, 2012. To make a submission, please use the SC12
