* 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.
