Women in IT Networking at SC accepting applications

March 5, 2019

The Women in IT Networking at SC (WINS) program is now accepting applications for the 2019 program. The application deadline is 11:59 p.m. AoE, April 1, 2019. The application form and details are available here.

Since 2015, the WINS program has provided an immersive “hands-on” mentorship opportunity for early- to mid-career women in the IT field who are selected to participate in the ground-up construction of SCinet, one of the fastest and most advanced computer networks in the world. SCinet is built annually for the Supercomputing Conference (SC). SC19, to be held in Denver, Colorado, is expected to attract more than 13,000 attendees who are leaders in high-performance computing and networking.

WINS is a joint effort between the Department of Energy’s Energy Sciences Network (ESnet), the Keystone Initiative for Network Based Education and Research (KINBER), and the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR), and works collaboratively with the SC program committee.

The program offers travel funding for awardees through an NSF grant and ESnet funding; collaborates with SCinet committee leadership to match each awardee with a SCinet team and a mentor; and provides ongoing support and career development opportunities for the awardees before, during, and after the conference.
