Student Research Symposium

HiPC 2011 Student Symposium Flyer»

Message from the Co-Chairs»

HiPC 2011 will feature the fourth student research symposium on High Performance Computing (HPC) aimed at stimulating and fostering student research, and providing an international forum to highlight student research accomplishments. We welcome submissions from students enrolled in any degree program. In particular, we encourage submissions from PhD students in India as well as from international universities. The symposium will also expose students to the best practices in HPC in academia and industry. The one-day symposium will feature brief presentations by student authors on their research, followed by a poster exhibit. Short invited talks by leading HPC researchers/practitioners will be included in the program. The Conference Reception and Student Symposium Poster Exhibits will provide an opportunity for students to interact with HPC researchers and practitioners (and recruiters) from academia and industry. To be considered, students should submit a 5 page extended abstract of their research.

    Scholarship opportunities

    Students from Indian academic institutions are encouraged to apply for the HiPC travel scholarship. The conference expects to award travel scholarship to at least one student author of each accepted submission from Indian academic institutions who apply. In addition, highly motivated students who wish to attend the conference but do not have a submission may also apply for these scholarships. Please see the announcement page for details.

    Unfortunately, we are not able to offer travel support for International students this year.
