Selected applicants will spend June 24-28, 2012, in the Royal Marine Hotel, Dun Laoghaire, Dublin, Ireland, learning issues related to HPC challenges and networking with experts in the field, as leading American and European computational scientists and HPC technologists present a variety of topics. The program will benefit graduate and postdoctoral students from European and U.S. institutions who currently use HPC to conduct research. Participation is free of charge to students who are selected and includes accommodations and full board in the Royal Marine Hotel. Support for travel costs is also available to students selected to participate and who are from U.S. institutions.
