SC12 Call for Posters
Submissions due July 31, 2012

SC12 is soliciting submissions for posters that display cutting-edge, interesting research and work in progress in high performance computing, storage, networking and analytics. Posters provide an excellent opportunity for short presentations and informal discussions with conference attendees.

Posters will be prominently displayed for the duration of the conference, giving presenters a chance to showcase their latest results and innovations. Authors of accepted posters will have the opportunity to prepare extended abstracts that will be archived with other SC12 materials in IEEE or ACM digital libraries. It is also planned that the presented posters will be digitally archived and made publicly available after the conference. A best poster award will be presented based on quality of research work and quality of poster presentation.

SC12 will also host the ACM Student Research Competition (SRC). This competitive event will feature posters from undergraduate and graduate students showcasing original research. Undergraduate submissions are strongly encouraged and all participating students must be ACM members. Winners will receive prizes and the top finishers will be invited to participate in the ACM Student Research Competition Grand Finals. Otherwise the same guidelines as for regular posters apply.


As in past years, we solicit three different types of posters:
1) Regular Poster (“paper” poster)
2) Electronic Poster (interactive, to be presented on 50-inch LCD displays)

3) ACM Student Research Competition Poster

A full submission for regular and electronic posters needs to include a draft of the poster and may include a 2-page (including references) poster summary in the SC12 technical paper format, see . ACM Student Research Competition submissions are limited to 800 words by ACM rules. There are separate submission forms for the three different types of posters. A single poster may be submitted as only one type.

All posters can be submitted within up to two of the following categories: Algorithms, Applications, Architecture and Networks, and System Software at
