Women in IT Networking at SC 2018 (WINS 2018)

Hosting Institution: SCinet
Submission Deadline: March 23, 2018
Summary: The Women in IT Networking at SC (WINS) program is seeking qualified female U.S. candidates in their early to mid-career to join the SCinet volunteer workforce for SC18. Selected candidates will receive full travel support and mentoring by well-known engineering experts in the research and education community. Created each year for the SC conference, SCinet brings to life a very high-capacity network that supports the revolutionary applications and experiments that are a hallmark of the SC conference. SCinet will link the convention center to research and commercial networks around the world. The SC Conference Series is dedicated to supporting an inclusive environment. In 2015, SCinet partnered with a team of collaborators to create the pilot SCinet Diversity Program┬╣,developed as a means for addressing the prevalent gender gap that exists in information technology (IT), particularly in the fields of network engineering and high performance computing. The success of the 2015 program led to an official three-year awardby the National Science Foundation (NSF) and DOE-ESnet, titled Women in IT Networking at SC (WINS)┬▓. WINS is a joint effort between the Energy Sciences Network (ESnet), the Keystone Initiative for Network Based Education and Research (KINBER),the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR),and SCinet.

The following awards are given at the November Supercomputing Conference each year:

ACM Gordon Bell Prize

The Gordon Bell Prize is awarded each year to recognize outstanding achievement in high-performance computing. The purpose of the award is to track the progress over time of parallel computing, with particular emphasis on rewarding innovation in applying high-performance computing to applications in science, engineering, and large-scale data analytics. Prizes may be awarded for peak performance or special achievements in scalability and time-to-solution on important science and engineering problems. Financial support of the $10,000 award is provided by Gordon Bell, a pioneer in high-performance and parallel computing. For more information, please visit .

IEEE Seymour Cray and Sidney Fernbach Awards

The Seymour Cray Computer Science and Engineering Award recognizes innovative contributions to HPC systems that best exemplify the creative spirit of Seymour Cray. The Sidney Fernbach Memorial Award honors innovative uses of HPC in problem solving. Sponsored by IEEE Computer Society, these prestigious honors are presented during special sessions held during the conference. For more information, please visit .
