International Summer School on HPC Challenges in Computational Sciences

Graduate students and postdoctoral scholars in the United States, Europe, and Japan are invited to apply for the fourth International Summer School on HPC Challenges in Computational Sciences, to be held June 23-28, 2013, in New York City. The summer school is sponsored by the U.S. National Science Foundation’s Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) project, the European Union Seventh Framework Program’s Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe Implementation Phase project (PRACE-2IP), and RIKEN Advanced Institute for Computational Science (RIKEN AICS).

Leading American, European and Japanese computational scientists and high-performance computing technologists will offer instruction on a variety of topics, including:

  • Access to EU, U.S., and Japanese cyberinfrastructures
  • 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 summer school will benefit advanced scholars from European, U.S., and Japanese institutions who use HPC to conduct research.


Interested students should apply by March 18. Meals, housing, and travel expenses will be paid for the selected participants.
