Travel grant applications are due April 28 for attendance at the XSEDE14 Student Program, Jul 13-18 in Atlanta, Georgia. The 2014 XSEDE conference will showcase the discoveries, innovations, and achievements of those who use, build, and support XSEDE resources and services, as well as those involved in related digital resources endeavors around the world. The theme of XSEDE14 is Engaging Communities, to engage both traditional users of digital resources and people who have not traditionally used digital resources but would benefit from their usage. From experts in the field, to people who are novices in the applications of digital resources, the XSEDE14 Conference will provide a range of formal and informal opportunities for people to interact and address their diverse needs and interests.
