Announcing 3rd EU-US HPC Summer School

Hi DCOMPers,

This just in ...

Announcing the third EU-U.S. Summer School on HPC Challenges in Computational Sciences, June 24-28, 2012, Dublin, Ireland
The U.S. National Science Foundation’s Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) project and the European Union Seventh Framework Program’s Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE) are pleased to announce the third International Summer School on High Performance Computing (HPC) Challenges in Computational Sciences, June 24-28, 2012, in Dublin, Ireland.

After the success of summer schools in Catania, Sicily, in 2010 and in South Lake Tahoe, California, in 2011, the third summer school will take place in Dublin, the capital of the “Green Island.”
The summer school is designed to foster international and multidisciplinary research collaborations with U.S. and European graduate and postdoctoral scholars. Leading American and European computational scientists and HPC technologists will present a variety of topics, including:
An overview of EU and U.S. cyberinfrastructure
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 and U.S. institutions who currently use HPC to conduct research.
