PRACE: International Summer School on HPC Challenges in Computational Sciences, 1-6 June 2014, Budapest

Graduate students and postdoctoral scholars from institutions in Europe, Canada, Japan and the United States are invited to apply for the fifth International Summer School on HPC Challenges in Computational Sciences, to be held from 1 to 6 June 2014 in Budapest, Hungary.

The summer school is sponsored by the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE), U.S. National Science Foundation’s Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE), 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, U.S., Japanese and Canadian HPC-infrastructures
– HPC challenges by discipline (e.g., bioinformatics, computer science, chemistry, and physics)
– HPC Programming Proficiencies
– Performance analysis & profiling
– Algorithmic approaches & numerical libraries
– Data-intensive computing
– Scientific visualization

The program will benefit advanced scholars from European, U.S., Canadian and Japanese institutions who use HPC to conduct research. Meals, housing, and travel from US, Canada and Japan will be covered for the selected participants. Applications from students 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.

Interested students should apply by March 9, 2014.
