4th Workshop on Education for High Performance Computing (EduHiPC 2022)

December 18, 2022
Bengaluru, India
Website: https://hipc.org/wdfhc/

EduHiPC aims to provide a forum that brings together academia,
industry, government, and non-profit organizations – especially from
India, its vicinity, and Asia – for exploring and exchanging
experiences and ideas about the inclusion of high-performance,
parallel, and distributed computing into undergraduate and graduate
curriculum of Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Computational
Science, Computational Engineering, and computational courses for STEM
and business and other non-STEM disciplines.

The 4th EduHiPC (EduHiPC 2022) workshop invites unpublished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
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 (hardware
vendors and research and development organizations), government labs,
and academia in the context of HiPC 2022. The goal of the workshop is
to hear the challenges faced by educators and professionals, 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 and online evaluation mechanisms for
PDC/HPC. 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 and her neighboring Asian countries.
- 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 Python, CUDA, OpenCL, OpenACC, SYCL, oneAPI,
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 and evaluations, including those
related to meaningful engagement of students and fair assessments.
