SC10 Education Program at the SC10 International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis
Sat Nov 13 – Tue Nov 16 2010 (conference runs through Fri Nov 19)
New Orleans LA

http://sc10.supercomputing.org/?pg=edprog.html

Applications to register are now being taken at:

https://submissions.supercomputing.org/

Applications will close Sat July 31 2010.

DETAILS:

The SC10 Education Program will host a four-day intensive program from Saturday, November 13 through Tuesday November 16, 2010, that will immerse participants in High Performance Computing (HPC) and Computational Science & Engineering (CSE).

The SC Education Program seeks to introduce HPC and computational tools, resources and methods to undergraduate faculty and to pre-college educators in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines, as well as to students considering careers teaching in STEM disciplines.

The program also assists educators in integrating HPC and computational techniques into their classrooms and research
programs.

The SC10 Education program provides an excellent opportunity for you and your institution to adopt existing and emerging techniques and technologies into your local STEM curriculum.

The 2010 program will include a variety of plenary talks, guided tours of the SC10 exhibit hall, breakout sessions, focused hands-on tutorials and birds-of-a-feather gatherings, as well as formal and informal opportunities to interact with other SC communities and exhibitors.

The focus will be on both technical content, including how to use computing in STEM disciplines, as well as pedagogical approaches, including how to teach STEM disciplines via computing.

The SC10 Education Program is now accepting applications for both registration and travel support. You can submit an application to attend via the SC10 submissions website:

https://submissions.supercomputing.org/

The application requests a variety of information about your background and needs, which will help us to assess which
applicants will be best served by the SC10 Education Program.

Teams of up to five educators are encouraged to apply. Travel support will include airfare, hotel accommodations (double
occupancy), food, and Education Program registration.

Preference will be given to postsecondary faculty and to teachers in secondary school STEM programs. Students considering in careers in teaching are also encouraged to apply.

Through a special program at SC10, limited support will also be available for additional housing support for participants who are able to stay for the entire SC10 conference. If you’re interested in this option, please indicate that in your application.

Please note that while we are inviting applications to register, we cannot guarantee acceptance in advance. Historically, we have only had sufficient budget to fund a subset of the applicants.

We’ll also be able to accept a limited number of self-funded participants into the SC10 Education Program.

The deadline for SC10 Education Program travel support applications is Saturday, July 31, 2010. Selected participants will begin to be notified in mid-August.

We encourage you to share this information with any colleagues that may also be interested in this program.

The SC10 Education Program is part of the SC10 Communities initiative, which includes programs like Broader Engagement,
which is focused on promoting participation by traditionally underrepresented populations; the Ambassadors program, which
seeks to encourage international participation; the Student Volunteers and the Student Cluster Challenge programs, which
provide a way for students to become directly involved in SC10.
