In case some of you have not heard of the SC Education program, below  
is an announcement about it.  The deadline is approaching rapidly, but  
there is still time to assemble a team of interested faculty from your  
institution.  In past years there have been sections on parallel  
computation and on using computation in various scientific disciplines  
(biology, physics, chemistry, engineering, mathematics, etc.)

SC10 Education Program at the
SC10 International Conference for High Performance Computing,
Networking, Storage and Analysis
Sat Nov 13 - Tue Nov 16 2010 (conference runs through Fri Nov 19)
New Orleans LA

http://sc10.supercomputing.org/?pg=edprog.html

Applications to register are now being taken at:

https://submissions.supercomputing.org/

Applications will close Sat July 31 2010.

DETAILS:

The SC10 Education Program will host a four-day intensive program from
Saturday, November 13 through Tuesday November 16, 2010, that will
immerse participants in High Performance Computing (HPC) and
Computational Science & Engineering (CSE).

The SC Education Program seeks to introduce HPC and computational
tools, resources and methods to undergraduate faculty and to
pre-college educators in Science, Technology, Engineering and
Mathematics (STEM) disciplines, as well as to students considering
careers teaching in STEM disciplines.

The program also assists educators in integrating HPC and
computational techniques into their classrooms and research
programs.

The SC10 Education program provides an excellent opportunity for
you and your institution to adopt existing and emerging techniques
and technologies into your local STEM curriculum.

The 2010 program will include a variety of plenary talks, guided
tours of the SC10 exhibit hall, breakout sessions, focused hands-on
tutorials and birds-of-a-feather gatherings, as well as formal and
informal opportunities to interact with other SC communities and
exhibitors.

The focus will be on both technical content, including how to use
computing in STEM disciplines, as well as pedagogical approaches,
including how to teach STEM disciplines via computing.

The SC10 Education Program is now accepting applications for both
registration and travel support. You can submit an application to
attend via the SC10 submissions website:

https://submissions.supercomputing.org/

The application requests a variety of information about your
background and needs, which will help us to assess which
applicants will be best served by the SC10 Education Program.

Teams of up to five educators are encouraged to apply. Travel
support will include airfare, hotel accommodations (double
occupancy), food, and Education Program registration.

Preference will be given to postsecondary faculty and to teachers
in secondary school STEM programs. Students considering in careers
in teaching are also encouraged to apply.

Through a special program at SC10, limited support will also be
available for additional housing support for participants who are
able to stay for the entire SC10 conference. If you're interested
in this option, please indicate that in your application.

Please note that while we are inviting applications to register,
we cannot guarantee acceptance in advance. Historically, we have
only had sufficient budget to fund a subset of the applicants.

We'll also be able to accept a limited number of self-funded
participants into the SC10 Education Program.

The deadline for SC10 Education Program travel support applications
is Saturday, July 31, 2010. Selected participants will begin to be
notified in mid-August.

We encourage you to share this information with any colleagues
that may also be interested in this program.

The SC10 Education Program is part of the SC10 Communities
initiative, which includes programs like Broader Engagement,
which is focused on promoting participation by traditionally
underrepresented populations; the Ambassadors program, which
seeks to encourage international participation; the Student
Volunteers and the Student Cluster Challenge programs, which
provide a way for students to become directly involved in SC10.

colleagues may participate, visit:
