Welcome to the March 2016 Women in HPC Newsletter

We have been busy so far in 2016! Our Advisory Board established a couple of committees at our November meeting and these committees are busy with their charters. For example, one committee is looking at how to better support the companies that sponsor WHPC activities. 

We kicked off our blog! Our goal is to publish a blog once a week. We are looking for authors, so if you have something to say let us know!

We are in the process of planning for ISC and discussing options such as a networking event, so stay tuned.

Do you like our newsletter? Share it with your colleagues! Our goal is to continue to provide updates to you, our members.

Happy March!
Sharing is caring! Like our newsletter? Tell your network about us!

ACM and SIGHPC Launch New International Fellowships in Computational and
Data Science

ACM SIGHPC and Intel are launching a new international program of graduate fellowships in computational and data science. The goal of this new graduate fellowship is to increase the diversity of students pursuing graduate degrees in data science and computational science, including women as well as students from racial/ethnic backgrounds that have not traditionally participated in the computing field. The program will support students pursuing degrees at institutions anywhere in the world.

Submissions Open March 15, 2016 for the ACM SIGHPC/Intel Computational & Data Science Fellowships. 

Interested faculty advisors and students can find more information on the fellowships, including a description of the fully online nomination process, at
