      Registration for the SC08 Education Program Summer workshops is now open (See
      http://sc-education.org/workshops). Two recent additions include the
      curriculum development workshop at Louisiana State University and the Nano and Bio
      sciences workshop at the University of Texas at El Paso.

      The SC Education program provides week-long workshops in high performance
      computing (HPC) education and HPC curriculum development for faculty,
      administrators and students. These week-long workshops focus on curriculum change and
      professional development derived from today's high performance computing
      environments. Topics for the 2008 summer workshop series include:

      Participants are asked to pay a registration fee of $150 and will be
      required to cover their own travel expenses. Room, board and other costs associate
      with the workshop are covered by the SC Education Program.

      Workshops are also open to high school teachers collaborating with college
      faculty. Educators in all fields of science, technology, engineering,
      mathematics, humanities, arts and social sciences are welcome, especially those from
      minority-serving institutions. Faculty are encouraged to mentor and support
      undergraduate and graduate students as part of their workshop team.

      The SC08 Education Program is a year-long program working with undergraduate
      faculty, administrators, college students, and collaborating high school
      teachers to integrate computational science and high performance computing and
      communications technologies highlighted through the SC Conference into the
      preparation of future scientists, technologists, engineers, mathematicians and
