ISC 2021 Call for PhD Forum


ISC PhD Forum is an excellent opportunity to present your latest research results, projects, and innovations to a global audience including your HPC peers and future coworkers.
All posters will be presented through the digital ISC and we intend to offer interactivity between presenters and attendees.
The PhD Forum consists of two parts:

  *   A set of short back-to-back lightning talks (swift, focused presentation of the PhD student’s research objectives and early results; format will be defined soon)
  *   Poster presentation session (starting point for engaging discussions with more in-depth information)
Submitted PhD Forum proposals will be reviewed by the ISC 2021 PhD Forum Committee<https://www.isc-hpc.com/isc-committees.html>, which is headed by Olga Pearce, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), USA, with Abhinav Bhatele, University of Maryland, USA, as Deputy Chair.

Springer, the international publisher specializing in science, technology and medicine, will again sponsor  the ISC 2021 PhD Forum Award<https://www.isc-hpc.com/awards-2021.html> which recognizes the three most outstanding posters as selected by members of the PhD Forum committee<https://www.isc-hpc.com/isc-committees.html>. The awards include cash prizes for the first, second and third winner (EUR 500/300/150).

Submission Deadline:                                                               March 10, 2021, 11:59 pm AOE.

Notification of Acceptance:                                                      May 5, 2021

Final Presentation Slides and Posters due:                                June 7, 2021

Attendance requires a Conference Pass. Registration fees will be published in spring 2021.
ISC will grant a complimentary conference pass to one author per accepted poster.


Topics may range from performance analysis to optimization, from tools to applications, and from software engineering to hardware architectures, with a cross-cut on reproducible and open-science research. Essentially, all areas covered in the call for research papers<https://www.isc-hpc.com/research-papers-2020.html> are also accepted for the PhD Forum submissions. We strongly encourage submissions by students in an early phase of their PhD track.
