International HPC Summer School 2014

Posted on 18 February 2014

Graduate students and postdoctoral scholars from institutions in Europe, Canada, Japan and the United States are invited to apply for the fifth International Summer School on HPC Challenges in Computational Sciences, to be held 1-6 June, 2014, in Budapest, Hungary. The summer school is sponsored by the PRACE-3IP project, the U.S. Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) project, RIKEN Advanced Institute for Computational Science (RIKEN AICS), and Compute/Calcul Canada.

Leading American, Canadian, European and Japanese computational scientists and HPC technologists will offer instruction on a variety of topics, including access to HPC infrastructures, HPC challenges by discipline (e.g., bioinformatics, computer science, chemistry, and physics), parallel programming proficiencies, performance analysis & profiling, algorithmic approaches & numerical libraries, data-intensive computing and scientific visualisation.

The school will benefit advanced scholars from European, U.S., Canadian and Japanese institutions who use HPC to conduct research. Applications from students in all science and engineering fields are welcome. Meals and housing will be covered for all selected participants; travel will also be covered for those from US, Canada and Japan. Preference will be given to applicants with parallel programming experience, and a research plan that will benefit from the utilisation of HPC systems.

Interested students should apply by Sunday 9 March, 2014
