DOCTORAL SHOWCASE PROGRAM @ SC17
CALL FOR APPLICATION http://sc17.supercomputing.org/submitters/doctoral-showcase/
Notification: September 1, 2017
As part of the Technical Program of SC17, the Doctoral Showcase provides an important opportunity for students near the end of their Ph.D. to present a summary of their dissertation research in the form of short talks and thesis canvas. (Please note that we have renamed ‘posters’ at the Doctoral Showcase program SC17 to ‘Thesis Canvas’ as it will reflect your entire dissertation and not just portions of a particular project).
Unlike technical paper and poster presentations, Doctoral Showcase highlights the entire contents of each dissertation, including previously published results, to allow for a broad perspective of the work.
This program also provides an ideal opportunity for prospective employers in academia, research laboratories and hiring managers industry to interact with prospective Ph.Ds.
Who should apply to the Doctoral Research Showcase track?
- Students who will be graduating in the next 12 months
- Students looking for a venue to showcase a summary of their research highlights, including previously published results and display a broad perspective of their work
Students are asked to submit the following:
- A four-page summary of their research that includes problem statement, major research highlights, and references;
- A Thesis Canvas draft, which is expected to be a single page and must t on a 4-feet tall x 8-feet wide poster display board (PDF format).
- A list of the student’s conference/journal publications for consideration by the Doctoral Showcase committee.
The authors of the accepted submissions will be invited to give presentations at the SC17 conference.
Submissions to this program may also be submitted to the SC17 ACM Student Research Competition posters track or published in other venues.
Everyone attending SC17 is encouraged to attend this program. Come to see the latest and greatest dissertation work done by tomorrow’s HPC experts. Students will greatly bene t from your valuable feedback.

Dr. Pramod Ganapathi, a Ph.D. student at SUNY, StonyBrook participated in the Doctoral Showcase program in 2016 and presented work on his Ph.D. titled “Automatic Discovery of Efficient Divide-&-Conquer Algorithms for Dynamic Programming Problems”.
Ganapathi said, “Participating at DS-SC16 was a nice experience for me. First, it gives a platform to showcase a Ph.D. student’s several years of research work. Second, it creates opportunities for networking and collaboration. Third, it opens the door to learning various cutting edge research work on supercomputing”.
He is currently a Founder & CEO of an online educational company called “Learning is Beautiful” (learningisbeautiful.in).
