The objective of the TCHPC Education and Outreach Initiative is to coordinate activities, information and best practices around HPC education/outreach across its member technical committee and the broader community. Currently planned activities with this initiative include:
- Coordinate student activities across conferences (e.g., Ph.D., forums and student mentoring); develop a repository of related material and best practices.
- Develop a web portal integrating resources and activities in the area of HPC education at both the undergraduate and graduate level. The portal will also link to various efforts in HPC curriculum development.
- Create a list of HPC resources available for educational use to support faculty teaching classes that need these resources.
- Serve as a bridge between undergraduate programs and industry and labs seeking to host HPC REU students and interns.
