PEARC17 Student Program scholars whose participation was supported by Google, Micron Foundation and the Science Gateways Community Institute.

Student cohort, and the sponsors who made it possible:

Sixty-six students from dozens of U.S. colleges and universities attended the Practice & Experience in Advanced Research Computing (PEARC17) conference in July, 2017. Twenty students were partially supported by their institutions (an average of $450). Generous donations to STEM-Trek Nonprofit from Google, Micron Foundation and the Science Gateways Community Institute (SGCI) made it possible for another 46 students to participate.

PEARC17 Student Program Committee:

The PEARC17 Student Program was chaired by Alana Romanella (Virginia Tech), with committee members: Kate Cahill (Oklahoma State University); Peter Enstrom (NCSA); Ricardo Gonzalez (University of Puerto Rico/Mayagüez); Elizabeth Leake (STEM-Trek); Melissa Romanus (Rutgers); Semir Sarajilik (Georgia State University); and Ester Soriano (NCSA).

Media coverage:

All links were promoted via STEM-Trek and PEARC17 General Conference social media channels. A comprehensive feature that summarizes the program will soon be shared with HPCwire and Science Node.
