SC21 BoF: Ethics in HPC

This BoF series hopes to foster an ongoing, community-wide discussion about the role of ethics in HPC and to leave participants with a new awareness of the ethical considerations involved in this field. During this BoF, we hope to consider topics such as the role of HPC in supporting morally questionable applications, the ways in which HPC indirectly perpetuates inequality on both an international and individual level, and the environmental impact of HPC. By starting this dialogue, we can help ensure that we are fulfilling HPC’s promise of making the world a better place.
