HPC brings people together, ideas together, communities together. And it is through the power of connections so evident at the Supercomputing Conference that some of HPC’s greatest contributions to life today got their first exposure and traction. Building on the power of community, SC13 will focus on the increasing integration of HPC into modern life through HPC Interconnections – an enhanced version of the long-standing community elements of SC. HPC Interconnections will help everyone get more out of the conference, providing programs for everyone interested in building a stronger HPC community, including students, educators, researchers, international attendees and underrepresented groups.

HPC Interconnections provides a welcoming entry to SC13 for attendees who may be new to the community or the conference. A range of programs will help attendees get the most out of their time at the conference and bring them into the HPC community. HPC Interconnections comprises Broader Engagement, HPC Educators, Mentors & Protégés, a program for international attendees, and programs for students, including the Doctoral Showcase, the Student Job Fair, the Student Cluster Competition and Student Volunteers. The goal is to ensure that all attendees make meaningful connections to help them during SC13 and after. Please join us.
