Latin American Women on HPC

About the workshop

This workshop aims to bring together women working on High-Performance Computing and BioInspired Processing, as well as related areas. This space is designed to improve the visibility of Women as role models in this field either working for the industry or the academy and to catalyze the interaction and networking between students, researchers, and professionals.

A special invitation is extended to all those interested in participating in this space, especially University students with a particular interest in Cloud Computing, simulation, bioinformatics, data science, parallel computing, accelerators, machine learning, and how women are developing their work in these areas. Walk-ins will be welcome as the workshop has no fee for participation.
