SC16 Technical Paper Abstracts due by Sunday, March 27
The SC16 Conference Committee solicits submissions of technical papers that introduce new ideas to the field and stimulate future trends on topics related to high-performance computing, including algorithms; applications; architecture and networks; clouds and distributed computing; data analytics, visualization, and storage; performance measurement, modeling, and tools; programming systems; state of the practice; and system software.
New this year
Double-blind review: SC16 will use a double-blind review process, which is a change from prior years.
Reproducibility initiative: As part of an initiative that aims to increase the level of reproducibility and replicability of results, SC16 invites authors of technical papers to volunteer to publish their methodology, code, and data with the paper, if their paper is accepted to SC16.
Abstracts due (required): Sunday, March 27 (firm deadline)
Full papers due: Sunday, April 3 (a traditional one week extension will be given until Sunday, April 10; no further extensions will be granted)

You will be able to make your reservations by starting at http://sc16.supercomputing.org/attendees/housing/.
A link to the housing reservation system will be available there once general attendee housing opens.
ACM/IEEE-CS George Michael Memorial HPC Fellowship Submissions Open
The ACM/IEEE-CS George Michael Memorial HPC Fellowship is open for submissions until Friday, May 1. Applications are sought from exceptional Ph.D. students whose research focus is on high-performance computing applications, networking, storage, or large-scale data analysis using the most powerful computers that are currently available.
Recipients receive a $5000 honorarium, travel and registration for SC16, and recognition at the SC16 Awards Ceremony. For detailed information on the requirements, selection criteria and application process go to http://awards.acm.org/hpcfell/. Address questions to email@example.com
Submissions due: Friday, May 1
Team Applications for Student Cluster Competition Due April 15
Students interested in demonstrating their high-performance computing skills on a global stage are invited to team up and sign up to compete in the tenth annual Student Cluster Competition at the SC16 Conference. The Student Cluster Competition is a high energy event featuring young supercomputing talent from around the world competing to build and operate powerful cluster computers. Applications are now being accepted and the deadline for team submissions is Friday, April 15.
Created as an opportunity to showcase student expertise in a friendly yet spirited competition, the Student Cluster Competition aims to introduce the next generation of students to the high-performance computing community.
New this year
New this year is the SCC Reproducibility Initiative, in which students will be challenged to reproduce a paper rather than run prescribed datasets. Students will be responsible for replicating results from an award-winning paper that was presented at SC15.
Panel Submissions due Sunday, April 24
Panels bring together key thinkers and producers to consider, in a lively and rapid-fire context, some of the key questions challenging the HPC community. Panels explore topics in depth by capturing the opinions of a wide range of people active in the relevant fields.

A New Format for the Vis Showcase!
SC16’s Visualization and Data Analytics Showcase Program provides a forum for the year's most instrumental movies in HPC. This year, there will be both a live display throughout the conference and a session at SC16 dedicated to the best of the submissions. There will also be a reception to give attendees plenty of time to enjoy and discuss this years great work!
Submissions due: Sunday, July 31
