*EduHPC: Workshop on Education for High-Performance Computing*

Sun, Nov 16, 2014

Website: *http://cs.gsu.edu/~tcpp/curriculum/?q=edupdhpc*

In conjunction with SC-14: The International Conference for High
Performance Computing, Networking, Storage, and Analysis



The EduHPC Workshop is devoted to the development and assessment of
educational resources for undergraduate education in Parallel and
Distributed Computing (PDC) and High Performance Computing (HPC).  Both PDC
and HPC now permeate the world of computing to a degree that makes it
imperative for even entry-level computer professionals to incorporate these
computing modalities into their computing toolkits, no matter what aspect
of computing they work on.  This workshop focuses on the state of the art
in HPC and PDC education, by means of both contributed and invited papers
from academia, industry, and other educational and research institutions.
Topics of interest include all topics pertaining to the teaching of PDC and
HPC within Computer Science and Engineering, Computational Science, and
Domain Science and Engineering curricula. The emphasis of the workshop is
undergraduate education, but fundamental issues related to graduate
education are also welcome. The workshop is coordinated by the CDER Center
for PDC Education and highlights the NSF/TCPP curriculum initiative on PDC (

This workshop invites unpublished manuscripts from academia, industry, and
government laboratories on topics pertaining to the needs and approaches
for augmenting undergraduate and graduate education in Computer Science and
Engineering, Computational Science and computational courses for STEM and
business disciplines with PDC and high performance computing (HPC)

The workshop is particularly dedicated to bringing together stakeholders
from industry (both hardware/software vendors and employers), government
labs, funding agencies, and academia in the context of SC-14, so that each
can hear the challenges faced by the others, can learn the various
approaches to these challenges, and can generally have opportunities to
exchange ideas and brainstorm solutions.  In addition to contributed talks,
this workshop will feature panels, special sessions, and invited talks on
opportunities for collaboration, resource sharing, educator training,
internships, and other means of increasing cross-fertilization between
industry, government, and academia, without "eating the seed corn."
Proposals for panels and special sessions are also welcome.

 Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

1. Pedagogical issues in incorporating PDC and HPC into undergraduate and
graduate education, especially in core courses

2. Novel ways of teaching PDC and HPC topics

3. Experience with incorporating PDC and HPC topics into core CS/CE courses

4. Pedagogical tools, programming environments, infrastructures, languages,
and projects for PDC and HPC

5. Employers’ experiences with and expectation of the level of PDC and HPC
proficiency among new graduates.


*Papers:* Authors are asked to submit 6-8 page papers in pdf format through
the EasyChair submission site at
https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=eduhpc14 choosing its “Paper”
track.  Submissions should be formatted as single-spaced double-column
pages using 10-point size font on 8.5x11 inch pages (IEEE conference
style), including figures, tables, and references. See style templates for
details. Papers will be published in the conference workshop proceedings.

Aug 20, 2014: Abstract submission deadline

Aug 27, 2014: Paper submission deadline

Sept 26, 2014: Author notification

Oct 10, 2014:  Camera-ready paper deadline

*Panels:* Prospective organizers are asked to submit a proposal in PDF
format through the EasyChair submission site at
https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=eduhpc14 choosing its
“Panel” track.
Upload a single PDF file that describes the panel, which may include such
information as description of the panel topic or position statements by the
panelists. You must convince us that the panel will truly be an interactive
session and not a series of presentations. Explain why the panel will
attract a good audience and why the audience will feel that the panel was
beneficial. Suggested length for this proposal is 1-2 pages.  Use font and
style as for papers noted earlier.
