Illinois Tech Undergraduate Student Shreyas Moudgalya to Attend International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage, and Analysis

Illinois Tech undergraduate student Shreyas Moudgalya was selected to attend the SC16 Experiencing HPC for Undergraduates Program from Sunday, November 13 through Friday, November 18 in Salt Lake City. He was among the top 29 students who qualified for the program.

The program covers travel expenses for selected students to attend SC16, including registration for the full SC16 Technical Program.

The Experiencing HPC for Undergraduates Program gives undergraduate students at the sophomore level and above an introduction to HPC research topics and techniques. The program introduces various aspects of HPC research at the SC16 conference to participants to give them a better understanding of opportunities to perform research as an undergraduate and potentially in graduate school. This information is also useful in deciding on career options related to HPC topics in computer science and computational science.

The program contains selected parts of the main SC Technical Program, with several additional elements. Special sessions include panels with current graduate students in HPC areas to discuss graduate school and research and panels with senior HPC researchers from universities, government labs and industry to discuss career opportunities in HPC fields.
