broken the record for the largest number of workshops since its inception, and
will be as vibrant as ever. The Workshop program includes 22 full-day and 20 half-day workshops distributed across Sunday
November 15, Monday November 16, and Friday morning of November 20. The high-value workshops selected this
year by a rigorous peer-reviewed process focus on in-depth presentations,
discussion, and interaction on topics of interest to the HPC community.
set of topics featured at the SC15 workshops this year is unique to no other
conference” said Workshops Chair Michela Taufer (University of Delaware). “Long
time hosted workshops with an exciting and well-established audience will be
held side by side with newer workshops on emerging topics. For example
workshops like DISCO and VHPC are in their 10th
edition, while many new workshops are responding to demands for the exascale
era, like the new 1st. Numerical Reproducibility
at Exascale workshop.”
can indeed choose among workshops that target technical HPC aspects associated
to e.g., irregular applications, architectures and algorithms, such as IA^3, participate
in the discussion about educational techniques for fostering parallel
programming in undergraduate and graduate curriculums, learn more about the
challenges that face women in HPC, or appreciate how HPC is revolutionizing
applications all over the sciences with, for example, new computational
approaches for cancer.
are wrapping up their program, others are still collecting paper submissions
and can serve as a great target for new attendees to present their work at SC15
for the first time” said Workshops vice-Chair Trilce Estrada (University of New Mexico). The SC15 workshop webpage provides the complete list of workshops. Authors looking for a home for their
work can learn more about individual workshops’ scope and URL by clicking on particular

year, we wanted to encourage attendees to participate in several
workshops, across the three days, by introducing a single, small fee of $40 for
students and $90 for regular attendees. This pass has to be added to their
technical program registration” said the Technical Program Chair Jeffrey Vetter
(ORNL). “We hope many colleagues who register for the regular technical program
will take advantage of this new opportunity,” he added.
programs, will complement the overall SC15 Technical Program events, expanding
the knowledge of their attendees on subject areas, and extending the HPC impact
with greater depth of focus. Register before October 15 and enjoy any workshop
at SC for the new single, small registration fee!
