    HPDC encourages sponsorship from industry, government, and institutions. Sponsorship takes the form of monetary and in-kind contributions that are acknowledged in announcements before the event, on our web site, during the event, and in the proceedings. Generally, contributions are used to: (1) defray registration costs so that more people can attend, (2) provide limited funding for travel for students who would otherwise not be able to attend, (3) make more interesting social activities possible, (4) support keynote speakers through honoraria, and/or (5) provide prizes/etc for best papers, etc. Depending on the level of sponsorship, inclusion in the industry session, special acknowledgments, reduced-cost or free registrations, and other benefits are possible. Large scale sponsorship, for example sole sponsorship of keynote speeches or social events, including naming rights, is also possible. If you are interested in sponsorship, please email hpdc2010-sponsorship at presciencelab dot org for more information.
