Impressions from the PASC23 Early Career Travel Grant recipients

“I’ve aOended PASC remotely in the past and enjoyed that but my experience in person far surpassed my expectations. I found it to be a friendly crowd eager to ask and answer questions. The agenda was busy and engaging and the scenery outside the conference was beautiful. Professional opportunities opened up for me while I was there as well. I’m very grateful for the SIGHPC travel grant for enabling me to go to PASC23 and to the conference organizers for making sure I met researchers with similar interests to my own.” Hannah Cohoon

“PASC was an extremely rewarding experience that I would not have been able to afford were it not for the early career travel grant. I made a number of valuable professional connections that I’m looking forward to maintaining going forward!” Rachel Kurchin

“PASC is an exceptionally unique conference bridging together HPC and domain science. As a first-time attendee, I was eagerly looking forward to presenting my work and exploring related domains. My expectations were not just met but exceeded by the vast diversity of disciplines showcased. Engaging with new communities and discovering a multitude of future interests was an invaluable experience. I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to the organizers for creating such an enriching event. Additionally, I extend my thanks to ACM SIGHPC for enabling my attendance as an early career participant.” Mikaela Cashman

“Attending PASC23 was an amazing experience. The conference exceeded all of my expectations. I learned so much from the presentations, workshops, and discussions. The conference gave me the unique opportunity to network not only with experts from my field, but also with specialists from different yet complementary disciplines. I am confident that these connections will be beneficial to my career in the future. I am also very grateful for the opportunity to have presented my own research at the conference. I am glad that I had the chance to share my work with other scientists and receive their feedback and suggestions. All this would not have been possible without the travel grant provided by SIGHPC and I am extremely thankful for the support received.” Nitin Shukla
