The Supercomputing 2014 (SC 2014) took place in New Orleans, Louisiana on November 16 – 21. As part of the conference, students supported by the Center of Excellence in Remote Sensing Education and Research (CERSER) program at Elizabeth City State University (ECSU) participated in the Broader Engagement Program. The goal is to increase the participation of individuals who have been traditionally under-represented in High Performance Computing (HPC).

Students participating this year were Maya Smith from Winston Salem State University, Derek Morris from Elizabeth City State University, and Bernard Aldrich from Jackson State University.

Derek presented "Analyzing the Security of Android Operating System," research that he completed as part of the Indiana University - Research Experience for Undergraduates.

Maya presented "Isotopic Signatures of Rain and Snow in the Juneau Icefield Snowpack," as part of her participation in the 2014 Juneau Ice Field Research.
