FAQs about Communications

Who gets SIGHPC emails?

SIGHPC maintains a maillist for active SIGHPC members.  Individuals can "opt out" of receiving emails by modifying their profiles on the myACM website.

Can I post to the SIGHPC maillist?

No, the SIGHPC maillist is reserved for official communications.  Mailings are kept to a minimum, and are limited to:

  • CONNECT E-newsletter
  • Important SIGHPC business (elections, the Annual Meeting, etc.)
  • Announcements of events with a formal SIGHPC collaboration (e.g., workshop held "in cooperation with" SIGHPC)
  • Infrequent "Upcoming Events" emails listing upcoming events of interest

Will SIGHPC announce my workshop / scholarship / book / etc.?
