Apply by 9 March, decisions in early April
Expenses paid by program
Sponsored by PRACE, XSEDE, Riken, and Compute Canada
Compute Canada/Calcul Canada invites students and researchers at Canadian post-secondary institutions to apply for one of 10 spots allocated to Canada for the fifth International Summer School on HPC Challenges in Computational Sciences. This is a great opportunity for Canadian students and postdocs to attend an Advanced Summer School on High Performance Computing Challenges, all expenses paid.
The workshop is aimed primarily at graduate students or postdocs; however, junior faculty or advanced undergraduates are also welcome to apply. Attendees will be expected to have some experience in HPC parallel programming (for instance, MPI, OpenMP, or CUDA/OpenCL), preferably on software used in successful research projects, and must be at least 18 years of age at time of application. Attendees from all disciplines are invited to participate.
The summer school is sponsored by the European Union Seventh Framework Program’s Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe Implementation Phase project (PRACE-3IP), U.S. National Science Foundation’s Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) project, RIKEN Advanced Institute for Computational Science (RIKEN AICS), and Compute Canada / 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, Canadian, Japanese and U.S. 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 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 March 9, 2014.
Meals, housing, and travel from Canada, Japan and the U.S. 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.
