Foster the Future of HPC

Mentor–Protégé Matching supports the growth of a vibrant HPC community by connecting students with experienced mentors. Matches are based on multiple factors, including research interests, career goals, long-term plans, and general interests.

Participate (Surveys Now Closed)

Mentors and protégés who sign up by September 1 can participate in additional virtual activities in the months leading up to the conference. We hope these expanded opportunities will contribute to deeper and more meaningful mentoring relationships. After the early deadline passes, sign-ups will remain open until October 1 for regular matching, which is still far enough of ahead of the conference dates to provide mentors and protégés a chance to meet each other virtually and jointly plan their conference activities.

In order to participate, we suggest that you:

  1. Complete a Mentor–Protégé Matching survey.
  2. Conduct a pre-conference email exchange or phone call between mentor and protégé.
  3. Attend at least one of our organized events during the conference (details to be announced).


Be matched with mentors that can provide guidance on navigating SC and your career. We do our best to accommodate as many protégés as we can.

Survey form for student participants is now closed.


Anyone with a desire to give back to the community is eligible to be a mentor at SC. We also expect mentors to be able to provide career and educational advice to a protégé.

Survey form for mentor participants is now closed.
