Call opened for 2016 International Summer School on HPC Challenges in Computational Sciences
16 Dec 2015 Ljubljana - Graduate students and postdoctoral scholars from institutions in Canada, Europe, Japan and the United States are invited to apply for the seventh International Summer School on HPC Challenges in Computational Sciences, to be held June 26 to July 1, 2016, in Ljubljana, Slovenia. Applications are due February 15, 2016. The summer school is sponsored byCompute/Calcul Canada, the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) with funds from the U.S. National Science Foundation, the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE) and the RIKEN Advanced Institute for Computational Science (RIKEN AICS).
Leading American, European and Japanese computational scientists and HPC technologists will offer instruction on a variety of topics, including:
- HPC challenges by discipline (e.g, earth, life and materials sciences, physics)
- HPC programming proficiencies
- Performance analysis & profiling
- Algorithmic approaches & numerical libraries
- Data-intensive computing
- Scientific visualization
- Canadian, EU, Japanese and U.S. HPC-infrastructures
The expense-paid programme will benefit advanced scholars from Canadian, European, Japanese and U.S. institutions who use HPC to conduct research. Interested students should apply by February 15, 2016. Meals and housing will be covered for the selected participants, also travel from outside Europe. Applications from graduate students and postdocs in all science and engineering fields are welcome. Preference will be given to applicants with parallel programming experience, and a research plan that will benefit from the utilization of high performance computing systems.
