International HPC Summer School 2018

July 8-13, Ostrava, Czech Republic

Since the call for applications closed in February 2018, a total of 80 graduate students and postdoctoral scholars from institutions in Canada, Europe, Japan and the United States have been selected to participate in the 9th International HPC Summer School, to be held July 8-13, 2018, in Ostrava, Czech Republic, hosted by the IT4Innovations National Supercomputing Center. The summer school is sponsored by the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE), the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE), the RIKEN Advanced Institute for Computational Science (RIKEN AICS) and the SciNet HPC Consortium.

Leading Canadian, European, Japanese and American 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 and profiling
  • Algorithmic approaches and numerical libraries
  • Data-intensive computing
  • Scientific visualization
  • Canadian, European, Japanese and U.S. HPC-infrastructures

The expense-paid program will benefit scholars from Canadian, European, Japanese and U.S. institutions who use advanced computing in their research.
