Supercomputing Conference Poster Submission Workshop

IMGP8560_cropIn 2015, Sustainable Horizons Institute was awarded a grant from the National Science Foundation to conduct a workshop for past BE participants. The vision of this project was 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, which was held at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory on April 9-10, 2015, provided participants with numerous SC resources, training and discussion on how to organize research results, and training on what makes a successful poster submission and consequently a successful poster presentation. The workshop also included working sessions where participants prepared draft submissions and 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 was accepted at SC15 became eligible for funding to attend the conference so they could present their poster. In the end, a number of individuals from the workshop attended SIAM CSE15 to present their posters.  Photos from the workshop can be found below.
