**11th International Women in HPC Workshop: Diversifying the HPC
Community and Engaging Male Allies**
Sunday November 17th 2019
Denver, Colorado, USA

# Call for Lightning Talks
Women-in-HPC will once again attend the Supercomputing conference to
discuss diversity and inclusivity topics. Activities will bring
together women and male allies from across the international HPC
community, provide opportunities to network, showcase the work of
inspiring women, and discuss how we can all work towards improving the
under-representation of women in supercomputing.

The 11th International Women in High Performance Computing (WHPC)
workshop at SC19 in Denver brings together the HPC community to
discuss the growing importance of increasing diversity in the
workplace. This workshop will recognize and discuss the challenges of
improving the proportion of women in the HPC community, and is
relevant for employers and employees throughout the supercomputing
workforce who are interested in addressing diversity.

## Sessions will focus on the following areas:
- Surviving difficult events and how to minimize the impact on your career
- Managing and resolving imposter syndrome
- Building an effective professional network
- How to get a new job or promotion
- Behaviors for inclusion: coping strategies for unconscious bias and
- Dealing with the guilt while being a parent, guardian and caregiver
- Pointers on making and engaging male allies at workplace

**Call for Lightning Talks: Now Open!**
Deadline for submissions: August 30th 2019 AOE

As part of the workshop, we invite submissions from women in industry
and academia to present their work as a lightning talk. This will
promote the engagement of women in HPC research and applications,
provide opportunities for peer to peer networking, and the opportunity
to interact with female role models and employers. Submissions are
invited on all topics relating to HPC from users and developers. All
abstracts should emphasize the computational aspects of the work, such
as the facilities used, the challenges that HPC can help address and
any remaining challenges etc.
