The Ontario Summerschool on High Performance Computing provides attendees with opportunities to learn and share knowledge and experience in high performance, technical, and data-centric computing. The Ontario Summerschool on High Performance Computing will have three installments. The first will be in London (May 25-29), the second in Toronto (July 9-13), hosted by SciNet, while the third will be held in Kingston (July 27-31).

The format of the Toronto installment will be a five-day workshop with mixed lectures and hands-on sessions on a number of selected subjects, including shared memory programming, distributed memory programming, and general purpose graphics processing unit programming. To incorporate this many topic, the summer school has two parallel streams throughout, from which you can pick and choose.


  • Linux command line: a primer
  • Introduction to High Performance Computing
  • Shared memory programming with OpenMP
  • Distributed memory programming with MPI
  • General Purpose GPU Programming with CUDA
  • Data Analysis with R
  • Parallel R
  • Scientific Computing with Python
  • Python for High Performance Computing
  • HPC optimization and debugging
  • Visualization


This event will be held in the Galbraith building, University of Toronto, 35 St. George Street, Toronto, Ontario M5S 1A4.


Participants that complete more than three days worth of instruction will be given an Ontario Summerschool Certificate. Note that this certificate is separate from the SciNet certificates.
