International HPC Summer School 2016

Graduate students and postdoctoral scholars from institutions in Europe, Canada, Japan and the United States are invited to apply for the seventh International Summer School on HPC Challenges in Computational Sciences, to be held June 26 – July 1, 2016, in Ljubljana, Slovenia. Applications are due February 15th, 2016. The summer school is sponsored by Compute/Calcul Canada, the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) with funds from the U.S. National Science Foundation, the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE) and the RIKEN Advanced Institute for Computational Science (RIKEN AICS).

Leading European, Canadian, 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, EU, Japanese and U.S. HPC-infrastructures

The expense-paid program will benefit advanced scholars from European, Canadian, Japanese and U.S. institutions who use HPC to conduct research. Interested students should apply by February 15th, 2016. Meals and housing will be covered for the selected participants, also travel from outside Europe. Applications from graduate students and postdocs 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.

Agenda

Leading European, Canadian, 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, EU, Japanese and U.S. HPC-infrastructures

Application

People who wish to attend the summer school must fill out the application form below. Eligible applications will be reviewed and those selected to participate in the school will be notified by email. Important dates for the application and selection process are the following:

Application opening December 16th, 2015
Application deadline February 15th, 2016
Selection and announcement March 9th, 2016

A two week period will be allowed for selected candidates to confirm participation. After that time any remaining seats will be offered to candidates from waiting lists. Selected candidates who confirm their participation will be requested to register. Registration instructions will be provided to selected participants.

IHPCSS 2016 Summer School Application

Who should apply (target participants)?

Ideal candidates for IHPCSS are graduate students in computational sciences with HPC relevance, who have already gathered some research and HPC experience, and postdocs in computational sciences with HPC relevance in an early phase of their research.

Important evaluation criteria

Important evaluation criteria include:

  • Strong scientific/technological reasons for participation
  • IHPCSS can contribute to advance research goals
  • Engagement in code development
  • Experience with HPC programming (MPI, OpenMP)

To also encourage participation from disciplines with HPC as emerging technology (e.g. biomedical and social sciences), HPC experience for applicants from those disciplines will enter with reduced weight.
