The International Summer School 2017 on High Performance Computing is an annual event organized by four HPC organizations, which brings together the best instructors, leading scientists and the most keen students.

This year, the summer school will be held in Boulder, Colorado, from June 25 to June 30, 2017.

Leading American, European, Canadian and Japanese computational scientists and HPC technologists will offer instruction on a variety of topics, including:

  • HPC challenges by discipline
  • HPC programming proficiencies
  • Performance analysis & profiling
  • Algorithmic approaches & numerical libraries
  • Data-intensive computing
  • Scientific visualization
  • Canadian, EU, Japanese and U.S. HPC-infrastructures

This event is sponsored by the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) with funds from the U.S. National Science Foundation, Compute Canada, the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE) and the RIKEN Advanced Insti­tute for Computational Science (RIKEN AICS). The expense-paid program will benefit advanced scholars from Canadian, European, Japanese and U.S. institutions who use HPC to conduct research.

Participation of students goes through an application process. From the applicants, 80 students will be selected, ten of which will be from Canada. Meals and housing will be covered for the selected participants, and their travel cost will be reimbursed after the event.

Interested students should apply by March 6, 2017. Applications from graduate 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.
