Submissions due July 31, 2014
Poster deadline is extended to August 7

SC14 solicits poster submissions that display original, unpublished, cutting-edge research and work in progress in high performance computing, storage, networking, algorithms, and applications. Following the success of last year’s education track, SC14 also solicits education posters of interest to undergraduate HPC educators, with an emphasis on curriculum development and best teaching practices.

Posters provide an excellent opportunity for short presentations and informal discussions with conference attendees, giving presenters a chance to showcase their latest results and innovations. The selected posters will be prominently displayed during the entire conference. They will be digitally archived and made publicly available after the conference. A best poster award will be presented based on the quality of the work and the quality of the poster presentation.

SC14 will also host the ACM Student Research Competition (SRC). This competition will feature posters from undergraduate and graduate students showcasing original research. Exactly one student, who must be an active ACM member, must author each poster.  The student’s advisor may be a coauthor. The ACM SRC pre-selection will happen during the poster reception on Tuesday, 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.


We solicit these types of posters:

  1. Regular Poster;
  2. HPC Education Poster, which is a regular poster marked as part of the education track.  These are separately reviewed by HPC educators;
  3. ACM Student Research Competition Poster.

A full submission for a regular or education poster must include a draft of the poster.  We recommend submitting an additional summary of at most two pages including references, in the SC14 technical paper format. (Click “Sample Submission Forms” at https://submissions.supercomputing.org).

An ACM Student Research Competition submission must include a summary, which is limited to 800 words.

There are separate submission forms for regular and SRC posters. A single poster may be submitted as only one type. To assist us in assigning reviewers, submissions are classified by the submitter, on the submission form, as being relevant to up to two of the following categories: Algorithms, Applications, Architecture and Networks, and System Software.

The web page for submissions is https://submissions.supercomputing.org   See the sample submission forms there for more information on exactly what is required for a poster submission.
