PSCC Call for Contributions

With the "Proud and Strong in Computing Conference" (PSCC) we want to create a platform to increase the visibility of underrepresented groups in the field of scientific and high-performance computing and discuss measures and opportunities to foster a welcoming athomosphere for everyone in our community. Together we want to create a platform for (multiply) marginalized persons in the HPC-environment for networking, open discussions and presentation of their research. To achieve this, the conference is designed with a multi-disciplinary approach.

You can contribute to the conference by

  • presenting your research regarding diversity at the workplace and in research,
  • presenting initiatives and best practices to increase diversity in your team and in research,
  • sharing your personal experiences in the community, and last but not least,
  • showing off your research and showing the world that our community can grow even stronger through increasing diversity. This track offers a large scope, because we want to see role models from different fields and offer a welcoming atmosphere for all.

Research Track: Current trends in HPC and cognate Science Domains

We welcome scientific talks from all areas of scientific computing that you like to share in a welcoming environment, including, but not limited to,

life sciences,
high-performance computing,
digital humanities,
deep and machine learning,
physics and chemistry.

While your presentation should focus on the scientific content, we also welcome some aspects of proud and strong in computing during the talk. Maybe your personal background contributed in a special way to your research? Maybe you made positive or negative experiences?

Research Track: Current trends in AI and ML

We welcome scientific talks from all areas of scientific computing that you like to share in a welcoming environment, including, but not limited to,


Research Track: Gender research and Diversity

If your research is concerned with diversity in research - in computer sciences, cognate disciplines or in general - we would love to hear from you! In this track, especially talks from the fields of,

gender studies,
social studies,
and related,

are welcome.

Research Track: open call

Are you researching a different topic and would like to take part in the conference?

Track: Personal Experiences in HPC and cognate disciplines

In this track we would like to hear your experiences - bad and good - as a member of an underrepresented group in scientific computing. We think it is necessary for employers to learn from first-hand experiences. And most likely they will not get it from their employees. This track focusses on the exchange of experiences across different companies and intitutes. Please consider contributing a talk in this track presenting:

your experiences as a member of an underrespresented group in scientific computing and cognate disciplines,
your experiences as a caring relative or as a parent.

How does belonging to an underrepresented group influence your work or research? How does it influence the choice of your job? Have you experienced a very welcoming atmosphere somewhere? What was so special or different there?
