EU/US Challenges in High Performance Computing Summer School
As Barry Schneider, NSF-OCI told students who attended last year's summer school, we know that the grand challenges of the future will be solved by large teams of multidisciplinary researchers. One objective for the experience is to bring young multinational researchers together that may not otherwise have the opportunity to meet. The seeds we plant at this summer school will yield the fruit of future discovery and develop friendships among young innovators that will last a lifetime.
The U.S. National Science Foundation’s TeraGrid, the European Union Seventh Framework Program’s Distributed European Infrastructure for Supercomputing Applications (DEISA), and the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE) are pleased to announce the second joint EU-US summer school on High Performance Computing (HPC) Challenges in Computational Science, August 7-11, 2011 at Embassy Suites Lake Tahoe Hotel and Resort, Lake Tahoe, California.
Sweeping views of the Sierra Nevada Mountains frame the setting for an educational experience designed to foster international and multidisciplinary research collaborations. Sixty U.S. and European graduate and postdoctoral scholars will be selected to participate in a six-day educational and team-building program. Leading American and European computational scientists and HPC technologists will present a variety of topics, including:
- An overview of E.U. and U.S. cyberinfrastructure
- HPC challenges among disciplines (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 scholars from E.U. and U.S. institutions who currently use HPC to conduct research. Applications from qualified candidates will be accepted through April 25, 2011. Participants will be selected and notified via email by May 9, 2011. U.S. nationals, female, and minority students are especially encouraged to apply by deadline.
