EPCC's Women in HPC Chapter Launch
06 May 2019
St Leonard's, Pollock Halls, University of Edinburgh, 8th May 2019
Registration is free and open to all.
EPCC's Women in HPC Chapter is excited to announce that we will be holding a launch event, to celebrate our recently formed chapter and to engage and develop our Women in HPC community. The chapter has a strong focus on diversity and we are particularly keen that the launch is open and welcoming to all, whether you are interested in becoming a member of the network or simply keen to be an ally and supporter.
The launch is free to attend and will take a workshop approach, with short lightning talks, breakout sessions and opportunities for discussion and networking.
The event will focus on two areas in particular: The first will look at the challenges and opportunities for women to develop their professional skills and profile throughout their careers. Through a series of lightning talks, participants will discuss their experiences and challenges before breaking into discussion groups. The second will focus on celebrating and encouraging diversity in high performance computing and computational science. Opportunities will exist for break out sessions and discussion in areas such as outreach, publicity, recruitment and the working environment.
