Apply Now for PRACE HPC Summer School Programs

The European PRACE organization is now accepting applications for the following expense-paid educational programs: The 2017 International Summer School on HPC Challenges in Computational Sciences and the PRACE Summer of HPC 2017 program.

Call for Proposals: SC17 Workshops

The SC17 conference is now accepting proposals for independently planned full- or half-day workshops. SC17 will be held Nov. 12-17 in Denver.

Registration Open for Argonne Training Program on Extreme-Scale Computing

“As a bridge to that future, this two-week program fills many gaps that exist in the training computational scientists typically receive through formal education or shorter courses. The 2017 ATPESC program will be held at a new location from previous years, at the Q Center, one of the largest conference facilities in the Midwest, located just outside Chicago.”

Apply Now for Summer of HPC 2017 in Barcelona

“The PRACE Summer of HPC is an outreach and training program that offers summer placements at top High Performance Computing 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.”

Penn State Institute for CyberScience to Host HPC Workshops

The Penn State Institute for CyberScience (ICS) is hosting a series of free training workshops on high-performance computing techniques. These workshops are sponsored by the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE). The first workshop will be 11 a.m. to 5 p.m on Jan.17 in 118 Wagner Building, University Park.

SimScale Brings Cloud-based CAE to Academics and Students Worldwide

Today SimScale launched the SimScale Academic Program which brings cloud-based CAE software into universities, schools, and classrooms around the world. “SimScale is a new-generation CAE platform that supports Structural Mechanics, Fluid Dynamics, and Thermal Analysis. Students, Researchers, and Educators can now harness the power of the cloud to run engineering simulations on any laptop, anywhere.”

DDN Opens Synergy Innovations Lab for HPC

Today DDN announced that it has partnered with Synergy Solutions Management to offer organizations access to a first-of-its-kind facility in North America where users can plan, design and test video surveillance and high performance computing solutions and conduct training. The Synergy Innovations Lab, located near Vancouver, Canada, provides a fully-equipped testing lab that allows users to evaluate solutions within a mixed workload environment.

12 Teams to Compete in ISC 2017 Student Cluster Competition

“The competition is an opportunity to showcase the world’s brightest computer science students’ expertise in a friendly, yet spirited competition,” said Martin Meuer, managing director of the ISC Group. “We are very pleased to host these 12 compelling university teams from around the world. We look forward to this very engaging competition and wish the teams good luck.”

NVIDIA Launches Deep Learning Teaching Kit for University Professors

“With demand for graduates with AI skills booming, we’ve released the NVIDIA Deep Learning Teaching Kit to help educators give their students hands on experience with GPU-accelerated computing. The kit — co-developed with deep-learning pioneer Yann LeCun, and largely based on his deep learning course at New York University — was announced Monday at the NIPS machine learning conference in Barcelona. Thanks to the rapid development of NVIDIA GPUs, training deep neural networks is more efficient than ever in terms of both time and resource cost. The result is an AI boom that has given machines the ability to perceive — and understand — the world around us in ways that mimic, and even surpass, our own.”
