When registering for SC17, consider signing up as a mentor to help students get the most out of the conference and make a difference in their careers.
Organized as part of the Students@SC program, the Mentor-Protégé Program supports the growth of a vibrant HPC community by connecting the newcomers at the SC conference with experienced conference attendees. It is a great opportunity to give back and help out the next generation of industry professionals.
For many students, SC17 will be their first conference and can be overwhelming, but a mentor can help them make the best use of their time and make personal connections. Conference attendees who have attended SC one or more times in the past are encouraged to sign up to be mentors by checking the appropriate box when they register for SC.
Mentors should plan their travel arrangements so they can attend a Monday afternoon mixer for mentors and protégés from 3:30-5 p.m. Monday, Nov. 13. To register, click here.
