PRACE is seeking students interested in spending the summer working abroad. Consisting of a training week and two months at a European High Performance Computing Center, the program affords participants the opportunity to learn and share more about PRACE and HPC, and includes accommodation, a stipend and travel to their HPC center placement.
The PRACE Summer of HPC is a PRACE outreach and training program that offers summer placements at top HPC centers across Europe to late-stage undergraduates and early-stage postgraduate students. Up to twenty top applicants from across Europe will be selected to participate. Participants will spend two months working on projects related to PRACE technical or industrial work and produce a report and a visualization or video of their results.
Applications are due January 31, 2016 and are welcome from all disciplines. Previous experience in HPC is not required, as training will be provided. Some coding knowledge is a prerequisite but the most important attribute is a desire to learn, and share, more about HPC. A strong visual flair and an interest in blogging, video blogging or social media are desirable. Project outlines with more detailed prerequisites and more information on applying are available on the PRACE Summer of HPC website.
