Announcement - TeraGrid '10 contest for high school, undergraduate, and graduate students

TeraGrid ’10 is seeking students to participate in this year’s 5th Annual TeraGrid Conference. As a student, you can participate in several ways:

Poster Contest

How do you use computational science to solve science, engineering or mathematics problems? Let us know by submitting a poster that demonstrates your models, simulations, or visualizations. Awards will recognize the best poster in each of three categories: high school, undergraduate, and graduate.

Programming Contest

Showcase your team’s programming skills by participating in this exciting, fast-paced on-site contest. With access to computing resources, teams (of up to five members, plus one coach) will receive a variety of interesting science and parallel computation problems to address at the conference. Awards will recognize creativity, quality of the solutions and innovative excellence of the teams who solve the most problems during the competition.

Research Papers

You can be one of three students acknowledged at TG’10 as a “TeraGrid Emerging Scientist.” How? If you are an undergraduate or graduate student and are working on a research project that utilizes TeraGrid or Open Science Grid (OSG), we encourage you to submit a paper that describes your research. Send your submission, indicating you are a student, to one of the TG’10 conference tracks (Science, Technology, Gateways or Education, Outreach and Training (EOT)).

If your submission is selected to be presented at TeraGrid'10, you will receive funding to cover your expenses to attend the conference, along with complimentary registration to TG’10. The deadline for submissions is 7 June 2010 so don’t delay. Get your submission in today!
