* SC19 Panels Program - Call for Submissions *

SC19: The International Conference for High Performance Computing, 
Networking, Storage, and Analysis
November 17-22, 2019, Denver, Colorado, USA

SC19 Panels will be held Tuesday–Friday, November 19–22, 2019.

Panels create an opportunity for the community to engage in discussion 
on current HPC challenges and solutions. The goal of the Panels program 
is to gather diverse practitioners in sharing insightful perspectives, 
engaging the broader community in dialogue, and making concrete progress 
toward a specific collaborative goal.

We invite you to make a submission and to offer your encouragement and 
assistance to others in making submissions. Please start your 
submissions early and refine them until submissions close.

* Review Criteria *
Panels are peer-reviewed by a committee of experts. Each panel proposal 
will have at least three reviewers. Panel reviews are single-blind. 
Panels are evaluated on the following criteria:

- Relevance and timeliness of the topic: Is this an issue that needs to 
be resolved now?

- Expectation of driving toward insight: Will the panel make a 
meaningful contribution to the state of the art and for the good of the 
supercomputing community?

- Diversity of panelists: Diversity may be broadly construed to include 
topical, institutional, geographic, and demographic characteristics 
(e.g., seniority, gender). How is your panel representative of the 
current, or of an ideal, HPC community?

- Audience draw: Expectation of creating excitement and drawing an 
audience, as evidenced by relevance and participation in similar events 
(e.g., panels, workshops, conferences) at related venues.

- Approach: Effectiveness of prescribed approach in sharing and drawing 
out insights, including highlighting diverse perspectives (a little 
friendly controversy is often beneficial for discussion) and fostering 
and garnering audience participation. The submission should include a 
proposed agenda for the panel session.

- Clarity: The proposal should be clear, complete, and articulate.
