Call For Papers


7th Workshop on Education for High-Performance Computing (EduHPC’20), co-located with SC20.
To be held on November 15th, 2020 in Atlanta, GA

We are pleased to invite you to submit unpublished manuscripts on topics pertaining to the needs and approaches for augmenting undergraduate and graduate education in Computer Science and Engineering, Computational Science, and courses for both STEM and business disciplines with PDC and HPC concepts. We are especially interested in novel pedagogical tools/approaches, educational resources, infrastructures, and projects for PDC, HPC, data science, and computational science education. We highly encourage manuscripts that validate their innovative approaches through the systematic collection and analysis of information to evaluate their performance and impact.


We are accepting submissions for three categories: Full papers (8-10 pages), Lightning Talk proposals (2-page abstract) and Peachy Parallel assignments (1-page abstract).

1.- Papers: Authors should submit 8-10 page papers in PDF format through the Linklings submission site (TBD). Topics of interest include, but are not limited to Pedagogical issues in incorporating PDC and HPC in undergraduate and graduate education, novel ways of teaching PDC and HPC topics, Data Science and Big Data aspects of teaching HPC/PDC including early experience with data science degree programs, evidence-based educational practices for teaching HPC/PDC topics. Submissions should be formatted as single-spaced, double-column pages (IEEE format), including figures, tables, and references.

2.- Lightning talks: lightning talk sessions encourage the presentation of ongoing research, new and innovative ideas, or prospects for partnership and collaboration. Additionally, Lightning talk will be an appropriate track of submission for our large body of early adopters to present their curriculum adoption experiences, findings and recommendations. Proposals should be limited to a 2-page PDF document

3.- Peachy Parallel Assignments: we are seeking assignments that are 1) Tested - All submitted assignments should have been used successfully in a class. 2) Adoptable - Preference will be given to assignments that are widely applicable and easy to adopt. Traits of such assignments include coverage of widely-taught concepts, using common parallel languages and widely-available hardware, having few prerequisites, and (with variations) being appropriate for different levels of students. 3) Cool and Inspirational - Peachy assignments should be fun and inspiring for students. They encourage students to spend time with the relevant concepts. Ideal assignments are those that students want to demonstrate to their roommate. Assignments can cover any topics in Parallel and Distributed Computing. Initial submissions should be a 1-page PDF document describing the assignment and its context of use. What is the main idea? What concepts are covered? Who are its targeted students? In what context have you used it? What prerequisite material does it assume they have seen? What are its strengths and weaknesses? Are there any variations that may be of interest?
