                             CALL FOR PANELS
                     We solicit panel proposals for

    ACM/IEEE International Conference for High Performance Computing,
                 Networking, Storage, and Analysis (SC15)

Submit your panel proposals by Friday, April 24 (11:59PM AOE, see
http://www.timeanddate.com/time/zones/aoe).  As one of the most
important and heavily attended events of SC, your panel should include
lively and rapid-fire content with challenging questions related to high
performance computing, networking, storage and associated analysis
technologies for the foreseeable future.

Panels offer a rare opportunity for the mutual engagement of community
leaders and broad mainstream contributors in a face-to-face exchange
through audience participation and questioning. Surprises are the norm
at panels, which makes for exciting and lively hour-and-a-half sessions.
Panels can explore topics in-depth by capturing the opinions of a wide
range of people active in the relevant fields. Panels represent
state-of-the-art opinions, and can be augmented with social media
technologies including Twitter, LinkedIn, and video feeds-even real-time
audience polling.

This year, the panels committee plans to suggest questions to the panel
organizers that should only be revealed during the session.  This new
format is more interactive and thus more challenging for the panelists
and not least more informative for the audience.

We invite you plan on actively participating in one or more of the panel
offerings at SC15. We look forward to everyone's participation in making
panels at SC15 a major success and lots of fun.

Submission Deadline: April 24, 2015 (11:59PM AOE)
