3rd Workshop on Education for High Performance Computing (EduHiPC 2021)

in conjunction with the
December 17-18, 2021 | Virtual Event, INDIA | www.hipc.org

The 3rd EduHiPC (EduHiPC 2021) workshop invites unpublished
manuscripts from academia, industry, and government laboratories on
topics pertaining to needs and approaches for augmenting undergraduate
and graduate education in Computer Science and Engineering,
Computational Science, and computational courses for both STEM and
business disciplines with PDC and HPC concepts. Additionally, we
highly encourage manuscripts that validate their innovative approaches
through the systematic collection and analysis of information to
evaluate their performance and impact. The workshop is particularly
dedicated to bringing together stakeholders from industry (both
hardware vendors and employers), government labs, and academia in the
context of HiPC 2021. The goal is to hear the challenges faced by
others, to learn about various approaches to addressing these
challenges, and to have opportunities to exchange ideas and solutions.
We also encourage submissions related to the challenges in imparting
education during this difficult pandemic situation. This effort is in
coordination with the Center for Parallel and Distributed Computing
Curriculum Development and Educational Resources (CDER).

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Pedagogical issues in incorporating PDC and HPC in undergraduate and
graduate education, especially in core courses.
- Novel ways of teaching PDC and HPC topics.
- Issues and experiences addressing remote synchronous and
asynchronous teaching of PDC/HPC during the current pandemic
- Data science and big data aspects of teaching HPC/PDC, including
early experience with data science degree programs.
- Evidence-based educational practices for teaching HPC/PDC topics
that provide evidence about what works best under what circumstances.
- Experience with incorporating PDC and HPC topics into core CS/CE
courses and in domains.
- Experience and challenges with HPC education in developing
countries, especially in India, its vicinity, and Asia.
- Computational Science and Engineering courses.
- Pedagogical tools, programming environments, infrastructures,
languages, and projects for PDC and HPC.
- Employers’ experiences with new hires and expectation of the level
of PDC and HPC proficiency among new graduates.
- Education resources based on high-level programming languages and
environments such as X10, Chapel, Haskell, Python, Cilk, CUDA, OpenCL,
OpenACC, Hadoop, and Spark.
- Parallel and distributed models of programming and computation
suitable for teaching, learning, and workforce development.
- Issues and experiences addressing the gender gap in computing and
broadening participation of underrepresented groups.
- Challenges in remote teaching, including those related to meaningful
engagement of students and assessment.

We are closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation globally and in India
in particular. The decision whether to hold the conference on-site or
virtually will be made before October 2021. Should the conference be
held on-site, we understand that travel to India and within India may
still be difficult or even impossible for some. Because travel from
outside India will require an entry visa and that there may be travel
restrictions still in place, we will arrange some form of remote
presentation for those authors. We do not have changes to how accepted
papers will be published in IEEE Xplore — every accepted paper will
have at least one author who will register at the notified (reduced)
registration fee and also present the paper at the conference

Authors should submit papers in PDF format through the submission site
We are accepting submissions for full papers (5-8 pages including
figures, tables, and references). Submissions should be formatted as
single-spaced, double-column pages (IEEE format). Authors must try to
revise their papers to incorporate feedback from the reviewers. All
accepted papers will be published in the HiPC Workshop Proceedings and
will be included in the IEEE Xplore digital library. Accepted papers
will be available from the CDER website approximately 2 weeks before
the workshop so that attendees can read papers before attending the
talks. Papers that are not accepted as full papers may be optionally
accepted as short poster papers (2 pages). Authors of papers accepted
as poster papers will be invited to revise their papers in a 2-page
format. Authors of all accepted full and short papers must present at
the workshop. Authors will be further invited to publish their work in
a Journal of Parallel and Distributed Computing (JPDC) special issue,
as in the past workshops.

Abstract Submission Deadline: October 7, 2021 (encouraged)
Paper Submission Deadline: October 12, 2021 (hard deadline)
Paper Notification: November 5, 2021
Camera-ready Deadline: November 12, 2021

All deadlines are at 11:59 PM AOE (UTC-12).
