Education Outreach

The SC conference series has a proud tradition of reaching out to faculty and students, providing opportunities through formal training sessions, meetings and volunteer programs. The SC2003 conference in Phoenix will offer the following educational outreach programs:

The Education Program: Follow this link to learn more about the SC2003 Education Program which engages undergraduate faculty and K-12 teachers in four days of hands-on workshops to learn about high performance computing and communications tools and resources appropriate for their classroom. The participants selected to participate in this program will learn about approaches to using modeling and visualization in the classroom, including numerical modeling, algebraic modeling, dynamic modeling systems, and agent modeling. The Education Program runs November 15-18, 2003 at the Phoenix Civic Plaza in Phoenix, Arizona. The deadline for applications is closed, but there will be other opportunities for educators to participate in similar programs through the National Computational Science Institute.

MSI Program: This program aims to increase the participation of minorities in the SC conferences by providing support to help faculty and/or IT professionals from Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) attend the conference, as well as foster lasting collaborative relationships between faculty and the research community. The deadline for applications is May 30.

Student Volunteers: This program supports undergraduate and graduate students who volunteer to help with various aspects of the conference, including SCinet, media relations, exhibit setup and a host of other functions. Application deadline is September 30.
