White paper submissions provide extremely useful input to Compute Canada’s SPARC planning process. We welcome white papers from individuals, institutions, disciplinary groups, etc. For details, please find the latest call for white papers.  

In order to encourage the creation of community or disciplinary white papers, we list below the white papers received in 2014 and 2016 along with contact authors for those submissions and whether they are planning an update to their submission. Where those submissions are public, we provide a link below.

If you are in the process of preparing a white paper and would like to be listed as a contact on this page, please send us an email at sparc@computecanada.ca and we will add you to the list  of papers in progress.
