Diversity and Inclusion
This year, CCGRID is placing an emphasis on diversity and inclusion in systems research. We are inaugurating a D&I track at CCGRID 2023 which will feature eminent keynote speakers and panel discussions by researchers and practitioners in cluster, cloud and Internet computing from diverse backgrounds. Further, we will be hosting focused mentorship round-tables and networking sessions for students, faculty members and researchers from traditionally under-represented groups to provide them an opportunity to interact with leading experts from academia and industry.
We will be soliciting applications to participate in the D&I track and offer limited travel grants based on need and availability.
