SC13 Call for Posters

Submissions due July 31, 2013

SC13 is soliciting submissions for posters that display cutting-edge, interesting research and work in progress in high performance computing, storage, networking and analysis. Posters provide an excellent opportunity for short presentations and informal discussions with conference attendees.

Posters will be prominently displayed for the duration of the conference, giving presenters a chance to showcase their latest results and innovations. The presented posters will be digitally archived and made publicly available after the conference. A best poster award will be presented based on quality of research work and quality of poster presentation.

SC13 will also host the ACM Student Research Competition (SRC). This competitive will feature posters from undergraduate and graduate students showcasing original research. Exactly one student must author each poster (optionally with their advisor) and the student must be an active ACM member. The ACM SRC pre-selection will happen during the poster reception and selected poster presenters will be given the opportunity to present their work in short talks on Wednesday. The ACM SRC committee will select a set of winners based on their poster content and presentation style.


As in past years, we solicit three different types of posters:

1) Regular Poster (“paper” poster)

2) Electronic Poster (interactive, to be presented on 50-inch LCD displays)

3) ACM Student Research Competition Poster

A full submission for regular and electronic posters needs to include a draft of the poster. An additional 2-page poster summary (including references) in the SC13 technical paper format (see is recommended but not mandatory.

ACM Student Research Competition submissions are limited to 800 words by ACM rules.

There are separate submission forms for the three different types of posters. A single poster may be submitted as only one type. All posters can be submitted within up to two of the following categories: Algorithms, Applications, Architecture and Networks, and System Software at
