Event Overview

The 16th High Performance Computing Conference (HiPC) features the third student research symposium on High Performance Computing (HPC). It aims to stimulate and foster student research, and provide an international forum to showcase their research accomplishments. The conference encourages submissions from PhD scholars from Indian and international universities. To be considered, students should submit a five page extended abstract of their research. The symposium exposes students to HPC best practices in academia and industry.

The one-day symposium features brief presentations by student authors on their research, followed by a poster exhibit and short invited talks by leading HPC experts. It provides an opportunity for students to interact with HPC researchers and practitioners (and recruiters) from academia and industry.
