Sun Apr 28 06:32:00 CDT 2019

Deadline: Late May (1 week before late registration ends with a response 
2 days before early registration ends)


The HPDC PhD Forum offers an opportunity for students to interact with 
both their peers and professionals in the field, learn about and 
practice presentation skills, and to learn about career options and 
their tradeoffs.

Qualified students are required to submit an abstract for a poster that 
will be used as part of the forum sessions as well as during the 
Wednesday night poster reception for all HPDC participants.

Educational sessions include:

1. workshop on presentation skills. This will be an interactive 
discussion about what makes a good presentation and help build 
confidence for students when giving presentations.

2. practice presentation session. Each student will present a teaser 
talk of 1-3 minutes for their poster to a small group of peers and a 
leader to get constructive feedback about both their poster construction 
and how well their talk encouraged a listener to interact about the poster.

3. poster reception. As part of the HPDC program, a poster reception 
will be held for all student posters and paper posters. A best student 
poster will be voted on by the attendees with an award given at the 
Thursday night banquet.

4. career insights. A group of professionals in academia, national 
laboratories, and industry will offer a brief introduction about their 
career and will then be open to any questions from the forum 
participants to help the participants better understand both what path 
may be right for them as well as how to best prepare for a particular path.
