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, the Doctoral Showcase highlights the entire contents of each dissertation, including previously published results, to allow for a broad perspective of the work.
This Doctoral Research showcase track provides an opportunity to educate junior graduate students working in high performance computing areas. This program also provides an ideal opportunity for prospective employers in academia, research laboratories and industry to interact with prospective Ph.Ds.
Come to see the latest and greatest dissertation work done by tomorrow’s HPC experts. Students will greatly benefit 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”. Pramod says “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).
