Dear all,

We extended the deadline for the SBAC-PAD 2019 PhD Forum application
submissions to the week before the end of the early registration
period (see dates below).

The PhD Forum is a great opportunity for PhD students and Masters
students on track to enter a PhD program to expand their network and
discuss their projects with international researchers.

Please consider participating or encouraging your students to participate!

PhD Forum Chairs


The first annual SBAC-PAD PhD Forum event will hold poster
presentations by students working toward a PhD in broadly defined
areas related to high-performance and distributed computing. In
addition, there will be a broader, enhanced program to include several
lunch-time sessions to provide the student participants coaching in
scientific writing and presentation skills.

Participating students will have the opportunity to both present their
research work and interact with senior academic and industry people in
an informal setting. In addition, there will be mentoring sessions to
help students improve communication skills, obtain valuable
information for career planning, get familiar with a few of the trendy
research topics, and make valuable contacts – all while enjoying the
SBAC-PAD main conference and many associated workshops. The program
culminates with a poster presentation, where students have the
opportunity to practice what they learned and disseminate their work
to the broader SBAC-PAD audience.


Because the 2019 SBAC-PAD PhD Forum will emphasize interactive
activities and offer mentoring-coaching support, the Applicant
Statement of Interest will be as important as the poster proposal in
the selection process. Applicant students must be officially enrolled
in a PhD Program at the time of submission, and each submission MUST
be backed by a specific endorsement from the official PhD advisor(s).
Masters students on track to enter a PhD program may apply but should
meet the same standards as other applicants.

Details on the submission documents are available at
