ICS offers graduate student travel awards

The Institute for CyberScience (ICS) is accepting applications for the SuperComputing ’17 Student Travel Awards. Through this new program, graduate students can receive funding to attend the SuperComputing 2017 (SC17) conference in Denver, Colorado, this November. Applications are due Aug. 15.

Up to three awards of $1,000 will be made to cover student travel costs and conference registration. Students presenting at the conference will receive preference.

SC17 is an international conference for high-performance computing (HPC) industry professionals and researchers who rely on HPC for their work. Several conference strands are oriented to students, including a job fair, a poster competition, a showcase of doctoral dissertation research, and a mentor-protégé program that will pair newcomers with veteran conference participants.

“SC17 is a great opportunity for graduate students to develop professionally, network with potential employers, present their research, and stay current with the latest HPC techniques,” said ICS Director Jenni Evans. “I’m excited to help students attend through this award program.”
