Policies and Guidelines

This section of the website maintains copies of documents related to SIGHPC policies and guidelines.


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
