HPC Summer School

posted on January 30, 2014

The fifth International Summer School on HPC Challenges in Computational Sciences will be held June 1-6, 2014, in Budapest, Hungary. The summer school is sponsored by the European Union Seventh Framework Program’s Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe Implementation Phase project (PRACE-3IP), the US National Science Foundation’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 EU, US, Japanese, and Canadian cyberinfrastructures
  • 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
  • Scientific visualization


This program is open to graduate students and post-docs and will benefit advanced scholars who use HPC for their research. Meals, housing, and travel expenses will be paid.

The application deadline is March 9, 2014.
