SIGHPC chapters provide an opportunity for a sub-group of SIGHPC to form a more targeted community. Chapters can be organized by a geographic region or by a technical topic area. They can be based on city, state, prefecture, or canton. They can also be on specific topic area of mutual interest, and you'll see some great ideas reflected in the list of chapters below.
HPC is a broad, multi-disciplined field with members often spread across different parts of companies or universities. The idea of a chapter is to allow our scattered members to gather together around topics of common interest related to HPC. Depending on the chapter, they might have physical meetings, webinars, BOF sessions at conferences - or whatever it takes to allow the community to flourish and serve its members.
