SC-Camp is an initiative of researchers inspired by this idea that offers undergraduate and master students state-of-the-art lectures and programming practical sessions upon High Performance and Distributed Computing topics. SC-Camp is a non-profit event, addressed to all students including those that lack of financial backup. Usually, students applying in due time receive a partial or total grant, including meals, accommodations, lectures access, and programming challenges. .

The summer school focus on the following topics:

  • Parallel Programming
  • Multiprocessor Programming
  • Distributed Systems
  • Cluster Computing
  • Grid Computing
  • Cloud Computing
  • Volunteer Computing
  • Hybrid and GPU Programming
  • Resource/Job Management
  • Virtualization
  • Fault tolerance
  • Green Computing
  • Performance Evaluation

Screenshot 2016-09-05 at 9.05.48 AMWe welcome applications of undergraduate (preferable in Senior year) or master students from all areas of engineering and science with strong interest upon High Performance and Distributed Computing. Due to the advanced content of lectures some basic notions of Parallel and Distributed Computing along with programming skills are desirable. All courses and lectures will be held in English, thus a good knowledge of English is mandatory. The scientific and steering committee will evaluate the application forms based on the applicant’s scientific background and their motivation letter. This year, as the former year, we expect to accept 20 – 40 students.

Applications are due Sept. 19, 2016.
