Women in HPC Summit 2020

WHPC Summit: 29 April - 01 May 2020 - Vancouver, Canada

Building on our success as an internationally recognised organization that is actively addressing gender inclusion in the HPC/AI/Big Data workforce worldwide, the Summit is designed to celebrate the contributions, careers and leadership of women in High Performance Computing,

We are bringing together HPC leaders and innovators with career women in corporate organizations, research institutions, academia, and business for networking, mentoring, and sharing of knowledge in ways that challenge and change existing norms and culture in the technology world.

Together with our supporters and leaders in the community, create unique opportunities for women to network, learn, and build connections and identify opportunities, whether they be for their next career step, training, education or skills.

The WHPC Summit will provide a broadened scope and the first-ever dedicated event for women in the field of advanced computing.

The first WHPC Summit will be a 2-day event, held in downtown Vancouver in Spring 2020. The event will include:

  • Technical presentations from professionals in the community;
  • Career skills-building sessions;
  • Strategies for workforce inclusion, and engagement of under-represented groups;
  • Tutorials.
