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 Training Program on Extreme-Scale Set for August, 2015

class

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.”
