  Conferences, Fellowships, Forums and Networking Opportunities

  • 2016-2017 Humanities Institute at Stony Book (HISB) Graduate Student Public Humanities Fellowship In Partnership with the New York Council for the Humanities - The Graduate Student Public Humanities Fellowship was developed by the New York Council for the Humanities in partnership with seven New York research universities to bring humanities scholarship into the public realm, encourage emerging humanities scholars to conceive of their work in relation to the public sphere, develop scholars’ skills for doing public work, and strengthen the public humanities community in New York State. The year-long Fellowship will involve a combination of training in the methods and approaches of public scholarship and work by the Fellow to explore the public dimensions of their own scholarship in partnership with a community organization. Applicants must be residents of New York State and enrolled as a graduate student in a humanities discipline, broadly defined, at one of these seven universities: The City University of New York Graduate Center, Columbia University, Cornell University, New York University, SUNY Buffalo, SUNY Stony Brook, or Syracuse University. Duration of the Fellowship is August 2016 to June 2017, including mandatory attendance at a two-day orientation on August 22-23, 2016 in New York City. The Fellowship stipend is $8,000, plus a $500 travel and research stipend. The Fellowship is supported by grants from the Mrs. Giles Whiting Foundation and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Interested applicants should submit an online application, including a resume/CV and two references, by Friday, February 12, 2016. The link to the application is here: Public Humanities Fellowship Application. Applicants will be notified of final decisions by Friday, April 8, 2016. CONTACT: New York Council for the Humanities Program Officer Adam Capitanio (212-233-1131 / acapitanio@nyhumanities.org)

  • GPU Programming Hackathon – The five day hackathon is scheduled for May 2-6, 2016 at the University of Delaware (in collaboration with Oak Ridge National Lab). Participation is free and the goal of each hackathon is for current or prospective user groups of large hybrid CPU-GPU systems to send teams of at least 3 developers along with either 1) a (potentially) scalable application that needs to be ported to GPU accelerators or 2) an application running on accelerators which needs optimization. There will be intensive mentoring during this 5-day hands-on workshop, with the goal that the teams leave with applications running on GPUs, or at least with a clear roadmap of how to get there. Our mentors come from national laboratories, universities and vendors, and besides having extensive experience in programming with OpenACC/CUDA, many of them develop the GPU-capable compilers and help define the OpenACC standard.
