Overview

 

Showcases are fun, informal, interactive learning environments where you can engage with the creators of next-generation technologies. Showcases will include the Doctoral Showcase, Emerging Technologies Showcase, and Scientific Visualization & Data Analytic Showcase.
 

 

Doctoral Showcase Submissions

 

The Doctoral Showcase provides a unique opportunity for students nearing completion of their PhD to present a summary of their dissertation research in the form of talks and posters. Unlike Papers and Poster presentations, a Doctoral Showcase poster (now called a thesis canvas) highlights the entire contents of a dissertation, including previously published results, to allow for a broad perspective of the work.

SC18 submissions will be accepted from PhD students who plan to graduate by December 2019.

Please see the sample submission and review forms for more details on submission formats and evaluation criteria.

The authors of accepted submissions will be invited to present at the SC Conference, and will also display their work as a poster. Submissions to this program may also be submitted to the ACM Student Research Competition posters track or published at other venues.

All conference attendees are encouraged to attend this event. This program provides an ideal opportunity for prospective employers in academia, research laboratories and industry to meet prospective PhDs. Come to see the latest and greatest dissertation work done by tomorrow’s HPC experts.

 

Emerging Technologies Showcase Submissions

 

SC’s Emerging Technologies Showcase highlights innovative solutions that may significantly improve and extend the world of HPC in the next five to fifteen years. Consisting of carefully selected exhibits and presentations, Emerging Technologies will showcase innovative technologies from industry, government labs, or academia. Typically these technologies will be very early-stage and so not yet available from industry as products.

Technologies such as, but not limited to, neuromorphic and deep-learning accelerators, reconfigurable and approximate computing devices and systems, new SoC designs, 3D and non-volatile memory technologies, alternative programming languages and system software, and novel cooling techniques may offer medium-term benefits, while new device technologies such as, but not limited to, carbon nanotubes as well as quantum computing and next-generation optical computers offer potentially paradigm-changing benefits over the longer term.

The Emerging Technologies Committee will select these technologies from submissions, using a peer-review process. Successful projects advocate future technologies with the potential to influence computing and society as a whole.

 

Scientific Visualization & Data Analytics Showcase Submissions

 

SC’s Scientific Visualization & Data Analytics Showcase provides a forum for the year’s most instrumental movies in HPC. Six finalists will compete for the Best Visualization Award, and each finalist will present his or her movie during a dedicated 15-minute presentation. Movies are judged by overall quality, how they illuminate science, and for creative innovations in the movie production process.

Accepted submissions will be published in a virtual special issue of Parallel Computing.
