Call for papers for EduHPC 2024 at SC24.
Join Us at the EduHPC Workshop at SC24 in Atlanta, GA!

I am the program chair for EduHPC-24: Workshop on Education for High-Performance Computing, which will be held at SC24 (Supercomputing 2024) in Atlanta from 17-22 November 2024. We have been assigned Sunday morning, 17 November 2024, as the date for our workshop.

From supercomputers forecasting weather and developing vaccines to the multicore desktops, laptops, and mobile devices we use daily, high-performance computing (HPC) and parallel and distributed computing (PDC) are integral to modern technology. Whether directly or indirectly, we all benefit from the advancements in these fields. As such, the demand for skilled professionals capable of leveraging these sophisticated computing systems is ever-growing.

To meet this need, it is crucial that programs in Computer Science (CS), Computer Engineering (CE), Data Science (DS), Machine Learning (ML), Computational Biology (CB), and other compute-intensive disciplines equip students with the necessary HPC/PDC skills. However, the rapid evolution of hardware, programming languages, and development environments presents significant challenges for educators striving to prepare students for careers in these areas.

This is where the EduHPC workshop comes in: We invite unpublished manuscripts from academia, industry, and national laboratories on topics related to HPC and PDC in education, professional training, and workforce development. This year's workshop emphasizes Machine Learning/Deep Learning at scale, reflecting the growing importance of AI workloads on HPC systems. In previous years, we have featured papers from a wide range of fields, including Computer Science, Computational Science and Engineering, Data Science, and computational courses across both STEM and non-STEM disciplines.

The EduHPC workshop is a unique gathering at the SC (Supercomputing) conference, bringing together stakeholders from industry, national labs, and academia. Here, we will discuss pedagogical challenges, share innovative approaches, and exchange ideas on incorporating HPC/PDC education into undergraduate and graduate curricula. Our workshop activities include paper presentations, panels on sustainability and reproducibility in technical education, special sessions like “Peachy Assignments” and “Lightning Talks,” and various opportunities for collaboration, resource sharing, educator training, internships, and cross-sector interactions.

Don't miss this chance to be a part of the conversation at the forefront of HPC/PDC education and training. Join us in Atlanta for an engaging and inspiring experience at EduHPC, SC24!
