As part of the Technical Program of SC17, the Doctoral Showcase provides an
important opportunity for students near the end of their Ph.D. to present a
summary of their dissertation research in the form of short talks and
thesis canvas. (Please note that we have renamed ‘posters’ at the Doctoral
Showcase program SC17 to ‘Thesis Canvas’ as it will re ect your entire
dissertation and not just portions of a particular project).

Unlike technical paper and poster presentations, Doctoral Showcase
highlights the entire contents of each dissertation, including previously
published results, to allow for a broad perspective of the work.

This Doctoral Research showcase track provides an opportunity to educate
junior graduate students working in high performance computing areas. This
program also provides an ideal opportunity for prospective employers in
academia, research

laboratories and industry to interact with prospective Ph.Ds.

Who should apply to the Doctoral Research Showcase track?

• D. students who will be graduating in the next 12 months
• D. students looking for a venue to showcase a summary of their research

including previously published results and display a broad perspective of
their work

Students are asked to submit the following:


   A four-page summary of their research that includes problem statement,
   major research highlights, and references;

   A Thesis Canvas draft, which is expected to be a single page and must t
   on a 4-feet tall x 8-feet wide poster display board (PDF format).

   A list of the student’s conference/journal publications for
   consideration by the Doctoral Showcase committee.

The authors of the accepted submissions will be invited to give
presentations at the SC17 conference.

Submissions to this program may also be submitted to the SC17 ACM Student
Research Competition posters track or published in other venues.

Everyone attending SC17 is encouraged to attend this program. Come to see
the latest and greatest dissertation work done by tomorrow’s HPC experts.
Students will greatly bene t from your valuable feedback.
