Shaping Tomorrow

ISC 2020 Call for BoFs

PLEASE NOTE: Submission will open early September!

Like-minded ISC attendees come together in our informal Birds-of-a-Feather (BoF) sessions to discuss current HPC topics, network and share their thoughts and ideas. Each 60-minute BoF session addresses a different topic and is led by one or more individuals with expertise in the area. BoFs are different in nature from panels, technical paper sessions, tutorials, vendor talks, and other, more presentation-oriented parts of the ISC program. 

Proposals that cannot demonstrate a clear concept for the intended interactivity of their BoF will be rejected. During and after the conference, attendees will be asked for feedback on all program components, including BoFs. The amount of interactivity will be given special attention in the survey.

Submitted BoF proposals will be reviewed by the ISC 2020 BoFs Committee, which is headed by Prof. Masha Sosonkina, Old Dominion University, USA, with Roman Wyrzykowski, University of Czestochowa, Poland, as Deputy Chair.

Chair - Masha Sosonkina

Attendance will require an Exhibition Pass. Please find the ISC 2019 registration fees here. ISC 2020 registration fees will be published in January 2020.
