So far, the SiPE workshops have reached roughly 1000 people at 166 institutions, agencies, companies and organizations in 42 US states and territories and 5 other countries:

* 125 academic institutions;
* 18 government agencies;
* 16 private firms;
* 7 not-for-profit organizations.

SiPE is targeted at an audience of not just computer scientists but especially scientists and engineers, including a mixture of undergraduates, graduate students, faculty and staff.

These workshops focus on fundamental issues of HPC as they relate to Computational and Data-enabled Science & Engineering, including:

* the storage hierarchy;
* instruction-level parallelism;
* high performance compilers;
* shared memory parallelism (e.g., OpenMP);
* distributed parallelism (e.g., MPI);
* HPC application types and parallel paradigms;
* multicore optimization;
* high throughput computing;
* GPGPU computing;
* scientific and I/O libraries;
* scientific visualization.

The key philosophy of the SiPE workshops is that an HPC-based code should be maintainable, extensible and, most especially, portable across platforms, and should be sufficiently flexible that it can adapt to, and adopt, emerging HPC paradigms.
