Powering up for summer school
Graduate students and postdoctoral scholars in the United States, Europe and Japan are invited to apply for the fourth International Summer School on HPC Challenges in Computational Sciences, to be held from 23 to 28 June in New York.
The summer school is sponsored by the US National Science Foundation's Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment project, the European Union Seventh Framework Program's Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe Implementation Phase project (PRACE-2IP), and RIKEN Advanced Institute for Computational Science (RIKEN AICS).
Leading American, European and Japanese computational scientists and high-performance computing technologists will offer instruction on a variety of topics, including:
• Access to EU, US, and Japanese cyber infrastructures;
• HPC challenges by discipline (e.g., bioinformatics, computer science, chemistry and physics);
• HPC programming proficiencies;
• Performance analysis and profiling;
• Algorithmic approaches and numerical libraries;
• Data-intensive computing; and
• Scientific visualisation.
The expense-paid summer school will benefit advanced scholars from European, US and Japanese institutions who use HPC for research.
