Supercomputing Conference Poster Submission Workshop

IMGP8560_cropSustainable Horizons Institute was recently awarded a grant from the National Science Foundation to conduct a workshop for past BE participants. The vision of this project is to help past SCxy BE participants get more involved with the main technical track of the conference by providing training and assistance for their submission to the technical program poster session. Past Broader Engagement participants were encouraged apply for participation in the two-day workshop. The workshop included training and discussion on how to organize research results, available SC resources and what makes a successful poster submission and consequently a successful poster presentation. The workshop also included working sessions where participants prepared draft submissions and

IMGP8600_crop then received feedback on their submissions. There also was a mock-poster session to provide participants an opportunity to practice what they learned. Each participant left the workshop with a draft poster submission to be finalized and submitted through the SC15 Poster Submissions application.

Participants whose poster is accepted at SC15 will be eligible for funding to attend the conference and present their poster.

The workshop was held at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory on April 9-10, 2015

Benefits included:

Training, mentoring, and practice
