CRA-W is proud to be a sponsor of the following Discipline Specific Workshop:
Are you an undergraduate or graduate student undecided about your future career directions?
Intrigued by the thought of using and developing advanced computing capabilities to solve complex, impactful problems?
If so, the Pipeline Workshop is for you!
High-performance computing (HPC aka scientific computing or computational sciences) is a multidisciplinary field that includes Applications & Algorithms; Computer Hardware and Software Technologies; Data Analytics; and Program Analysis and Tools. The Pipeline Workshop aims to expand the HPC workforce with researchers and engineers from traditionally underrepresented groups (women, racial minorities and persons with disabilities). We target senior undergraduate and junior graduate students with three primary elements:
- Research Explorations: Sessions by leading experts to expose participants to current and emerging research challenges in computational science and engineering domains.
- Curriculum Advisement: Sessions to help participants tailor their educational curriculum for careers in computational science and engineering fields.
- Real Opportunities: Pre- and peri-workshop activities to match participants with lab and university mentors and specific internship and educational opportunities.
This event is open to both undergraduate and graduate students.
