|Focus||High Performance Computing|
ACM SIGHPC is the Association for Computing Machinery's Special Interest Group on High Performance Computing, an international community of students, faculty, researchers, and practitioners working on research and in professional practice related to supercomputing, high-end computers, and cluster computing. The organization co-sponsors international conferences related to high-performance and scientific computing, including the SC Conference (formerly ACM/IEEE Supercomputing Conference).
During its formation, the SIG was led by a set of volunteer officers:
|Vice Chair||Jeffery K. Hollingsworth|
These officers were replaced by the first elected slate of officers in July 2013, with subsequent elections scheduled every three years.
|Jeffery K. Hollingsworth||2016-2019|
|Vice Chair||Jeff Hollingsworth||2013-2016|
In addition to elected officers, the SIG is supported by a variety of appointed volunteer leaders who are responsible for membership coordination, creating the newsletter, and other duties needed to operated the SIG; the roles vary as the needs of the SIG change over time. These volunteer leaders are appointed by the SIG chair.
ACM SIGHPC co-sponsors the following international conferences related to high performance computing:
In addition, ACM SIGHPC supports the following conferences:
ACM SIGHPC sponsors the Emerging Woman Leader in Technical Computing Award. The award is offered once every two years to recognize a woman in high-performance computing and technical computing during the important middle years of their career for their work in research, education, and/or practice over the five to fifteen years after completing her last academic degree.
ACM SIGHPC partners with Intel to offer Computational and Data Science Fellowships to encourage students from underrepresented groups in high-performance computing, and data and computational science.
