Call For Papers



You are invited to join us for a half day workshop on ‘Women in HPC’ at 
Supercomputing 2014. The workshop aims to address gender issues in HPC 
research and innovation, the challenges facing women and how gender 
inequality can impact efficacy of the scientific method and research 
quality. The workshop will include talks from female early career 
researchers and invited talks by world-leading women working in the 
field of HPC, describing the challenges facing women in HPC careers and 
how to improve the representation of women in supercomputing.

We welcome participation from everyone in the HPC community to discuss 
the most appropriate and beneficial actions that can be taken to address 
the gender imbalance in HPC and the strategies that could be adopted to 
achieve these goals.

*Call for Papers*

Closing date: Thursday 31 July 2014

As part of the workshop we invite submissions from female early career 
researchers  (papers or posters) to present their work in a supportive 
environment that promotes the engagement of women in HPC research and 
applications, providing opportunities for peer to peer networking and 
the opportunity to interact with female role models.

Applicants must be female and either PhD candidates or early career 
researchers who have been awarded their PhD within 5 years of 1st 
November 2014.

Submissions are invited in the following categories:

• Extended abstract (max 500 words) on research in any area that

high performance computing.
