Hello all,

We are seeking some graduate students in the history of computing to help
both as compensated graduate student researchers and unpaid volunteers at
the upcoming ACM/IEEE Supercomputer Conference in Dallas, November 11 -
16.  Yes, the funding is modest, but the experience in invaluable.




The graduate student researchers will be charged to carry out some research
and categorize achievements in a review of conference technical program
papers from 2012 - 2017.  The research will be used to create content for
some history displays at SC 18 during the conference from November 11 - 16
in Dallas.

The selected graduate students will then apply this sprint orientation on
high performance computing to carry out some oral history interviews at the
conference, and help in the SC 30th Anniversary Booth, where will will have
a Cray 1 on display.

Each of the selected students will receive support funds of $2,800 to do
the research during the Summer along with the cost of travel and hotel to
attend and work at the conference in November

The history students will join over 100 other international grad students
in computer science for meals and social activities during the conference.
All students will be in the same hotel block.  Most meals for students are
funded by the conference.  This includes various conference celebrations
for over 10,000 attendees, as well as the full conference technical program
and exhibits.

Apply as a volunteer and in your application, please indicate you are
interested in working with the SC 30th Anniversary Committee as a graduate
student in the history of computing.   We will separate your applications
from all the those students applying only to be volunteers to work at the

If interested, follow the directions outlined here -

Graduate students in the history of computing that simply want to apply to
volunteer (not work during the Summer) can also apply, and if selected you
can help at the conference in November as assigned.

The deadline to apply is June 15.

Feel free to contact me with any questions.
