Events for the ACM SIGHPC Education Chapter

    SIGHPC Education Webinar HPC Carpentry Register and Connect to This Meeting The HPC Carpentry project has deep roots in some high-performance computing communities and has evolved considerably over several years. The basic idea is to make use of pedagogical techniques and the community-based continuous self-improvement that can be realized in the open-source world to develop instructional materials for novice users of HPC facilities. This fills an instructional gap that arises for both novice users of existing facilities, and investigators in research domains where HPC resources are newly available to them, due to the decreasing cost of increasingly sophisticated computing power.

    The ACM SIGHPC Education Chapter is announcing the initiation of a biannual education award to recognize outstanding contributions to computational, data-enabled science, and HPC education and training in all disciplines. We are seeking nominations for candidates who have led projects or programs that have made significant contributions to computational science education, defined broadly to include all disciplines and all education levels. The executive committee of the SIGHPC Education Chapter (Chair, Vice-chair, and Secretary-treasurer) and SIGHPC are not eligible for this award.

YouTube video Mentoring has the potential for great impact, and can play a key role in building community and bringing new researchers to HPC. However, sometimes getting involved in mentoring can be intimidating, and it can be difficult to find best practices for mentoring in HPC. In this webinar, “Mentoring: Maximize Your Impact”, four panelists with extensive mentoring experience will share their perspectives on effective mentoring, their own experiences, and tips on how to organize your mentoring program, followed by discussion and Q&A.
