SC23 Announces New Program for Supporting Underrepresented Research Teams

24 recipients will win booth space for this year’s conference and a chance to discuss ongoing work in HPC

The SC23 high-performance computing conference, which will be held this Nov 12-17 in Denver, Colorado USA, has announced a new program for “newly established and/or underrepresented research teams or institutions that lack the means to present their work at SC through the usual channels.” The new area of the show floor, dubbed the HPC Illuminations Pavilion, will feature 24 exhibits from institutions participating in the program.

The announcement states, “SC hopes this new initiative will attract content that would otherwise go unseen, and to foster quality discussions and interactions as part of a larger effort to better highlight the breadth and depth of the HPC community.”

The deadline for consideration is August 25, 2023. Institutions that currently have a booth at SC23 or have exhibited at SC in the past are not eligible for the program. Industry exhibitors or startups are also excluded. Individuals and representatives from not-for-profit and international organizations who actively engage with the HPC community are welcome to apply.
