SC07 to Feature Doctoral Showcase Activity

Reno, Nev. June 25, 2007 -- The annual SC conference has always been known as a place to meet people and hear about the latest results in HPC. This year there is a new way to hear about the latest research from the brightest minds in supercomputing.

The inaugural Doctoral Showcase will provide a forum for PhD students who will be graduating within a year after SC07 to provide information about their research to an international community.  The presentations will be part of the SC07 Technical Program, taking place Nov. 10-16, 2007, at the Reno-Sparks Convention Center in Reno, NV.

The goal of this showcase is two fold:  first, it provides students with a interested audience as they describe their research;  second, it also provides a visible, centralized location for organizations searching for new HPC talent.

These students represent the future of HPC and they are doing some incredible work. We felt it was important to create a forum to hear about their ideas, said Jeffrey Hollingsworth, SC07 Doctoral Showcase chair and professor of computer science at the University of Maryland.

Presentations will be limited to 15 minutes each to accommodate as many students as possible. To register to speak at the Doctoral Showcase, please submit a request at the SC'07 submissions web site http://sc-submissions.org by July 31, 2007.
