PRACE is seeking students interested in spending the summer working abroad at a European High Performance Computing (HPC) Centre.
In a bid to break the world land speed record of 1000 miles an hour, the UK’s largest distributed general supercomputing network is challenging schools in Wales with the ultimate science project. “Based on the Bloodhound Supersonic Car, this innovative competition will provide pupils with hands on experience of engineering tools and systems through access to technology usually used by Welsh academics, PhD students and businesses.”
Argonne will host their 2015 ATPESC Training Program on Extreme-Scale Computing for computational scientists. The event takes place August 2-14 in Chicago. “The program provides intensive hands-on training on the key skills, approaches and tools to design, implement, and execute computational science and engineering applications on current supercomputers and the HPC systems of the future. As a bridge to that future, this two-week program to be held at the Pheasant Run Resort in suburban Chicago fills many gaps that exist in the training computational scientists typically receive through formal education or shorter courses.”
In this video, Dr. Andrew Turner from EPCC in the UK presents: A Short Introduction to High Performance Computing. “I originally joined EPCC in July 2008 as a member of the User Support and Liaison Team. My work is centred around helping researchers get the most from computing facilities hosted by EPCC and elsewhere. I do this through porting and optimizing code to various HPC facilities; providing consultancy to commercial organizations; teaching undergraduates and postgraduates; and collaborating with academics on research proposals.”
