Costs and Scholarships

  • With funding provided by the National Science Foundation through the XSEDE program, with additional funds from NCSI, there is no fee to attend any NCSI/XSEDE workshop this year.
  • Meals and breaks during workshop hours will be provided to all participants (other meals typically not provided).
  • While most participants are expected to be within commuting distance of the workshop location, a limited number of spaces in each workshop will be available for those traveling to a workshop from a greater distance and who would need housing. For those accepted to a workshop, this housing (double occupancy) will be provided at no cost to the participant. Those requesting single occupancy will be responsible for the difference.
  • Subject to funding, a limited number of travel scholarships may also be available as reimbursements for receipted travel to more distant faculty interested in attending the workshops. The scholarships will provide partial or full reimbursement of travel costs to and from the workshops. Preference will be given to faculty from institutions that are formally engaged with the XSEDE education program and to those who can provide some matching travel funds. Recipients are expected to be present for the full workshop. Those interested in a travel scholarship should complete the scholarship application, which can be submitted after you apply for the workshop and is available from the page where you review your application.
  • All other incidental expenses will be paid by participants.
Applications of HPC, Grids, and Parallel Computing to Science Education
This workshop will begin with an emphasis on parallel and cluster computing in an educational setting as well as teaching issues in Grids and Parallel Environments. Examples suitable for classroom use will be presented, including both simple codes that can be made available for student modification and more complex examples that use state of the art open source community codes.

In addition, participants will have the opportunity to be introduced to computational biology and computational chemistry tools and resources. Participants will be introduced to dynamic modeling, bioinformatics, simulation, molecular modeling, mathematical software and visualization viz-a-viz distributed environments and tools.

Super Computing Education Program '08
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.
