Student Research Symposium

HiPC 2015 will feature the 8th 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. The symposium will also provide exposure to students in the best practices in HPC in academia and industry.

The one-day symposium, to be held on day one of the conference (Wednesday, ) will feature brief presentations by student authors on their research followed by a poster exhibit. Invited talks by leading HPC researchers/ practitioners will be included in the SRS program. Experts scheduled to speak include Vianney Koelman from Shell whose talk is titled Bits, Bytes, Barrels: HPC in the Energy Industry, and Raghu Ramakrishnan from Microsoft whose talk is titled Big Data@Microsoft.

The Conference Reception and Student Symposium Poster Exhibit will provide an opportunity for students to interact with HPC researchers and practitioners (and recruiters) from academia and industry.

Awards for Best Paper and Best Poster, sponsored by IEEE Technical Committee for Parallel Processing, will be presented at the symposium. An online book containing the resumes of the students participating in the symposium will be compiled and made available to the sponsors of the HiPC 2015 conference.
