The deadline for the TeraGrid ‘08 Student Competitions, to be held as part of the TeraGrid ‘08 conference, has been extended to 28 April 2008.

In addition to paper presentations, tutorials, and demonstrations, the third annual TeraGrid conference, to be held 9-13 June in Las Vegas, U.S., will include two competitions for students: “The Impact of Cyberinfrastructure on Your World” and “TeraGrid Student Research” competitions.

The student competitions are intended to provide a venue for students to share scholarly work, even in its early stages, as a visual display,” said Diglio Simoni, HPC scientist with RTI International and co-chair of the TG08 Student Competition.

“The competitions provide opportunities to practice presenting and to interact with senior colleagues and gather feedback. The goal is to promote a culture of HPC technology adoption even at the earliest stages of an individual's academic career by increasing awareness of available technologies and inspiring students to think, connect, create and share. Along the way, they learn research, writing and technology skills and compete for prizes.”

Competition Details

“The Impact of Cyberinfrastructure on Your World” Competition

High school and undergraduate students are invited to showcase their talents and creativity to convey how cyberinfrastructure will impact the world. Entries due 28 April 2008.

“TeraGrid Student Research” Competition

Students will be notified of the success of their submission by 5 May 2008.

The TeraGrid conference will provide the scientific community with opportunities for collaboration and technology sharing to enable scientific discovery using the TeraGrid.

The TeraGrid is a comprehensive cyberinfrastructure enabling world-class open computational research. TeraGrid ’08 will showcase the capabilities, achievements and impact of TeraGrid in research and education through presented papers, demonstrations, posters and visualizations. TG08 will foster collaborations among leading researchers, developers and educators to build on the growing TeraGrid infrastructure. TG08 will also provide information and training to enable both current and future users to achieve optimal results and maximum impact using TeraGrid resources and services.

Attendees will include researchers, developers, faculty and postdocs; graduate students, undergraduate students and high school teachers; program managers, directors and liaisons from federal agencies; representatives of companies who use or develop advanced computing technologies; and staff from the TeraGrid partner institutions.
