SC20 in Atlanta, GA, 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; 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.
