Student volunteers sought for SC’14 conference in New Orleans in November — June 15 application deadline
June 15, 2014 @ 12:00 am
The SuperComputing’14 conference in New Orleans Nov. 16-21 is seeking student volunteers to help with the administration of the conference. Student volunteers can participate in student-oriented activities, including professional development workshops and technical talks by famous researchers and industry leaders. In exchange for volunteering, students receive complimentary Conference registration and meals. Conference registration provides access to all tutorials and workshops, technical talks, panels, the Tech Program reception, and much more. There is some support for housing and limited support for transportation expenses (such as airfare), but this assistance is generally available only for international students and students from groups that traditionally have been underrepresented in HPC (African Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians, Pacific Islanders, the physically challenged, and women). So, conference organizers encourage students to seek funding from their institutions for housing and transportation expenses. The conference provides more information on how to apply to the conference and seek funding from your institution. The deadline for applying is June 15.
