Call for PEARC18 Student Contributions 

 

PEARC18 is organized thematically into four tracks: Facilitation of Advanced Computing Infrastructure, Applications of Advanced Computing Infrastructure, Visualization and Data Analytics, and Workforce Development and Diversity. All student submissions should make clear their relevance to Advanced Research Computing, as well as identify which track is most appropriate for their submission (see below for track definitions). Submission should be made at: https://ssl.linklings.net/conferences/pearc/

 

Submission Deadline for Student Papers and Student Posters: May 7, 2018 (8 PM EST)

 

Student Papers Full papers (5–8 pages) should be submitted using the 2017 ACM Sigconf template at:

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/s6rbao74dg2cq0s/AAB1L9lJd7yz-pXbKsz8gpnea?dl=0 . Authors should indicate which conference track is most suitable (see below for definitions). All accepted papers will be published in the online Proceedings.  Please indicate if the primary author is a student. To qualify, the work must be primarily the student's, the student must be the primary author, and the student must make a 15 minute presentation of the paper at the conference.

 

Student Posters: An abstract and optional mockup should be submitted. We strongly encourage submission of a poster mockup to allow a higher quality review of your submission. Poster size: maximum of 3.5 ft (1.1 m) wide by 4 ft (1.2 m) tall.  Authors of accepted student posters who wish to have their work included in the proceedings will need to provide a 2- to 4-page version of the poster in the format provided at:

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/s6rbao74dg2cq0s/AAB1L9lJd7yz-pXbKsz8gpnea?dl=0  by the June 1 camera-ready content deadline.  Please indicate if the primary author is a student. To qualify, a student must be the primary author and the work must be primarily theirs. When submitting, please affirm that the primary author is a student.

 

At least one author of an accepted student paper or student poster must attend the conference to present the work.
