Apply Now for Computing4Change Competition: Deadline May 21
Undergraduate students looking to create positive change in their communities as well as to enhance their skills are encouraged to apply for the new Computing4Change Competition. SIGHPC, ACM’s Special Interest Group on High Performance Computing, is launching Computing4Change for students from diverse disciplines and backgrounds who want to work collaboratively to:

  • Learn to apply data analysis and computational thinking to a social challenge
  • Experience the latest tools and techniques for exploring data through visualization
  • Expand skills in team-based problem solving
  • Learn how to communicate ideas more effectively to the general public

The next Computing4Change event will be held at the SC18 conference (November 11 to 16, 2018, in Dallas, Texas). SIGHPC will support 16 students to travel to SC18 for the competition.

Nominations are due May 21. For more information and to apply, please visit the SIGHPC Computing4Change Competition website.
