NERSCPowering Scientific Discovery for 50 Years

International HPC Summer School July 2024

July 7, 2024


Graduate students and postdoctoral scholars from institutions in Australia, Europe, Japan, and the United States are invited to apply for the 13th International High Performance Computing (HPC) Summer School, to be held on 7-12 July, 2024 in Kobe, Japan, hosted by the RIKEN Center for Computational Science. The summer school is sponsored by the RIKEN Center for Computational Science (R-CCS), the EuroHPC Joint Undertaking (EuroHPC JU), the Pawsey Supercomputing Research Centre (Pawsey) and the ACCESS program. Additional sponsors, who will conduct separate, internal selection processes, include EPCC (U.K.) and NICIS CHPC (South Africa). 

Summer School Topics

Leading computational scientists and HPC technologists from partner regions will offer instruction in parallel sessions on a variety of topics such as:

  • HPC and Big Data challenges in major scientific disciplines
  • Shared-memory programming
  • Distributed-memory programming
  • GPU programming
  • Performance analysis and optimization on modern CPUs and GPUs
  • Software engineering
  • Numerical libraries
  • Big Data analytics
  • Deep learning
  • Scientific visualization
  • Canadian, European, Japanese, Australian, and U.S. HPC-infrastructures

This training series is aimed at undergraduate and graduate students enrolled at US universities and community colleges. Attendees are expected to have basic experience with Python. No supercomputing or AI knowledge is required.

Application and Cost

School fees, meals, and housing will be covered for all accepted applicants to the summer school. Reasonable flight costs will also be covered for those traveling to/from the school. The application deadline is 23:59 AOE on January 31, 2024.
