CALL FOR PAPERS: The 11th Workshop on Education for High-Performance 
Computing (EduHPC23)

The 11th Workshop on Education for High-Performance Computing (EduHPC23) 
will be held in conjunction with SC23: The International Conference for 
High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis, in Denver, 
Colorado, November 13.

We invite submissions of unpublished manuscripts from academia, 
industry, and national laboratories on topics in high-performance 
computing (HPC), parallel and distributed computing (PDC), distributed 
data science (DS), scalable AI and machine learning (AI/ML), and the 
Internet of Things and Edge computing (IoT/Edge) as they relate to 
undergraduate and graduate education, professional training and 
workforce development. Because of the growing importance of AI workloads 
on HPC systems, this year's workshop will have a special focus on ML/DL 
training at scale. Past workshops have included papers from Computer 
Science, Computational Science and Engineering, Data Science, and 
computational courses in STEM and non-STEM disciplines.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

1. Pedagogical issues in incorporating HPC, PDC, DS, AI/ML and IoT/Edge  
into undergraduate and graduate education, especially in core courses
2. Evidence-based educational practices and novel ways of teaching 
HPC/PDC/DS/AI/ML/IoT/Edge topics
3. Pedagogical tools, materials, infrastructures, languages, and 
projects for HPC/PDC/DS/AI/ML/IoT/Edge education
4. Professional training and workforce development initiatives in 
5. Employers' experiences with and/or expectations of new graduatesÕ 
HPC/PDC/IoT/Edge proficiency
6. Teaching HPC, PDC and IoT/Edge in a data science context, especially 
data science degree programs
7. Education resources based on higher-level programming languages 
including but not limited to Chapel, Haskell, Scala, Python, modern C++, 
and Julia and environments/frameworks such as Cilk, CUDA, SYCL, OpenCL, 
OpenACC, OpenMP, oneAPI, Hadoop, and Spark
8. Efforts to evaluate generative AI (e.g., Chat-GPT) impacts on 
teaching HPC
9. Experiences and best practices in addressing the gender gap in 
computing disciplines and broadening participation of underrepresented 
groups and enhancing the pipeline to careers in HPC and related areas

This year’s invited talk will be delivered by Dr. Kathy Yelick, Vice 
Chancellor for Research and the Robert S. Pepper Professor of Electrical 
Engineering and Computer Sciences at the University of California, 


EduHPC accepts submissions in three categories: Full papers (6-8 pages), 
Lightning Talks (2-page abstract) and Peachy Parallel Assignments (1-2 
page abstract).

1. Full Papers: Authors should submit 6-8 page papers in PDF format 
through SCÕs Linklings submission site. The 8-page limit includes 
figures, tables, and references. An additional 2 pages can be used for 
the optional Artifact Description (AD) appendix. All submitted papers 
will be peer-reviewed and will be considered for a Best Paper award.

2. Lightning Talks: A Lightning Talk is a short (~5) presentation of a 
new or innovative idea, preliminary or ongoing research, prospects for 
partnership and collaboration, and/or preliminary HPC/PDC teaching 
experiences. Lightning Talk submissions are limited to a 2-page PDF 
document. The accepted Lightning Talks will be further curated to create 
a summary paper co-authored by the Lightning Talk chair and the talk 

3. Peachy Parallel Assignments: Peachy Parallel Assignments are HPC/PDC 
educational assignments that cover any topics related to HPC or PDC 
education, and are tested, adoptable, and engaging and inspirational.  
Peachy assignments are limited to a 2-page PDF. The accepted Peachy 
Assignments will be further curated to create a summary paper 
co-authored by the Peachy Assignments chair and the assignments' 
authors.  Authors will also be required to upload assignment materials  
to a permanent repository.

All submissions should be made through the SC's Linklings submission 
site. All submissions should be formatted using the ACM proceedings 
template. Please see EduHPC23 website at 
https://tcpp.cs.gsu.edu/curriculum/?q=eduhpc23 for additional details.


All accepted full papers, the Lightning Talks summary paper, and the 
Peachy Assignments summary paper will be published in the SC Workshop 
Proceedings and will be included in the IEEE Xplore digital library. The 
accepted peachy assignment abstracts and course materials will be 
published on the CDER website and archived with a permanent DOI at
