SPPEXA Women’s Workshop 2019

The first SPPEXA (DFG priority program for exascale computing) workshop for women in HPC will take place in the vicinity of Munich in January 2019. The workshop will bring together researchers at all career stages, with an emphasis on supporting younger researchers in their developing career paths. Women in SPPEXA, and the larger HPC community, will be supported through the exchange of experiences, inspiration from sessions with invited senior researchers, and relevant soft-skills education.


Female PhD students and Postdocs, who would like to learn from the experiences of others, extend their network and clarify questions regarding future career perspectives are invited to take part in our diverse program. For registration and further information please contact sppexawomensws@ipvs.uni-stuttgart.de

The workshop is financially supported by SPPEXA. Accommodation, catering on site as well as travel expenses will be covered.

We are looking forward to your attendance.
