Student Program

The student program will be on Wednesday, Oct 12, and Thursday, Oct 13, and the program consists of two sessions during lunchtime on Wednesday and Thursday, respectively.

During Wednesday's lunch meeting, we will meet with industry, academia, and national laboratory participants to discuss career paths. The objective of this session is to expose students to industry, academic, and national laboratory representatives from international companies, leading academic institutions, and national laboratories working in the field of data analytics, distributed infrastructure, and large-scale scientific simulation. The session will be organized as a bird-of-feather session with many opportunities for discussion between invited industrial and academic institutions and national laboratory representatives and students.

At Thursday’s lunch meeting, we will discuss the path toward writing a successful paper with the best paper and the best student paper candidates. The objective of this lunch session is to introduce students to hot topics in data analytics and distributed infrastructures through discussions with the best paper candidates. Topics will be selected in connection with the topics of the best paper candidate talks at the conference. This lunch session will create a cozier atmosphere for students to ask questions to the speakers. The expected duration of each lunch session is one hour, and students will be provided with boxed lunches.
