SC Conference - Activity Details

Pathways to HPC: Broaden Participation, Increase Impact

Primary Session Leader:
Laura McGinnis  (Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center)

Birds-of-a-Feather Session
Tuesday,  12:15PM - 01:15PM
Room 9C
This BoF will bring together SC attendees interested in increasing the impact HPC has by broadening participation in HPC to include traditionally underrepresented disciplines and demographic groups. A survey of existing pathway resources will be presented, and then a facilitated discussion will address issues critical to improving diversity and impact in HPC. Topics will include: what do underrepresented disciplines need to successfully utilize HPC, how can the existing HPC community encourage and support new users and researchers, and what are effective ways to introduce HPC concepts and opportunities earlier in the career development process (e.g. high school and 2-year schools)?
