Women in HPC at SC’15: Changing the face of HPC
Supercomputing 2015
Austin, Texas, USA
November 20, 2015
Following on from the success of the first Women in HPC workshop at SC’14 and
the follow-up at ISC 2015, the third international Women in HPC workshop will
take place at Supercomputing 2015.

The workshop aims to address gender issues in HPC research and innovation, the
challenges facing women and how gender inequality can impact efficacy of the
scientific method and research quality. The workshop will include talks from
female early career researchers and invited talks by world-leading women
working in the field of HPC, describing the challenges facing women in HPC
careers and how to improve the representation of women in supercomputing.

We welcome participation from everyone in the HPC community to discuss the
most appropriate and beneficial actions that can be taken to address the
gender imbalance in HPC and the strategies that could be adopted to achieve
these goals.

As part of the workshop we invite submissions from female early career
researchers, in industry or academic) to present their work as a hot topic
paper or poster, at the Women in HPC workshop, providing opportunities
for peer to peer networking and the opportunity to interact with female
role models.
