  • SIGHPC and Diversity
SIGHPC believes that HPC can only reach its full potential through the efforts of people from all backgrounds, organizations, and disciplines. The organizers of all SIGHPC-related activities are asked to: 
    • structure their committees to include diverse backgrounds and opinions 
    • establish rigorously fair review/selection processes to ensure there is no explicit or implicit bias against newcomers 
    • choose speaker lineups that include diverse representation 
    • track their progress in improving diversity by gathering and disseminating statistics on the gender/geographical/organizational makeup of committees, reviewers, authors, and speakers
