The Education Program works with undergraduate faculty, administrators and college students to integrate computational science and high performance computing and communications technologies into the preparation of future scientists, technologists, engineers, mathematicians and teachers. The program consists of intensive training sessions and presentations during the conference in Austin and summer workshops preceding the conference. The deadline for registering for the SC08 Education Program to be held during SC08 is May 31, 2008.
The SC Conference is the premier international conference for high performance computing (HPC), networking, storage and analysis. SC08 marks the 20th anniversary of the first SC Conference, then called Supercomputing, was held in Orlando, Florida in 1988.
When SC08 opens November 15, 2008 in Austin, Texas, the conference will feature the latest scientific and technical innovations from around the world. Bringing together scientists, engineers, researchers, educators, programmers, system administrators and managers, SC08 will be the forum for demonstrating how these developments are driving new ideas, new discoveries and new industries.
The Education Program runs Nov. 15 through Tuesday, Nov. 19.
