The SIGHPC Education chapter has as its purpose the promotion of interest in and knowledge of applications of High Performance Computing (HPC). The objectives of SIGHPC Chapter include:
- Promote an increased knowledge of, and greater interest in, the educational and scientific aspects of HPC and their applications.
- Provide a means of communication among individuals having an interest in education and career building activities relating to HPC.
- Promote and collate education activities and programs through formal and informal education activities.
- Provide guidance to the community on the competencies required for effective application of computational modeling, simulation, data analysis, and visualization techniques.
- Provide information on quality educational programs and materials as will as facilitating experience building access to existing HPC resources.
