ISC 2021 Call for PhD Forum submissions


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
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;

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
