Four new members joined the PRACE Training Centres network


17 Dec 2019 Brussels - The Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE) under the PRACE 6IP Project has recently expanded the network of PRACE Training Centres (PTCs) from 10 to 14 members. The four new members, all with proven track records in HPC training, are established in the following PRACE partner countries: Austria - TU Wien representing VSC Research Center, Belgium - UANTWERPEN representing VSC & CÉCI, Slovenia - University of Ljubljana representing the HPC Center Slovenia, and Sweden - Swedish National Infrastructure for Computing, SNIC. They join an existing network of 10 PTCs that have been operational in the Czech Republic, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain and the UK.

All the PTCs will soon begin preparations for the next joint PTC training programme that will deliver over 115 HPC-related courses in 14 European countries during the 2020-2021 academic year. The PTC training programme will cover a wide range of courses aimed at HPC users from novices to experts alike and is open for academia and industry. There will be good coverage of topics for HPC application developers including parallel programming methodologies, performance engineering, exploiting accelerators such as GPUs, novel HPC programming paradigms, etc. Some PTC courses will be expected to be targeted at other relevant areas such as high performance data analysis (HPDA), data management, software engineering as well as machine and deep learning. The PRACE training is free of charge.
