International Summer School 2014 on HPC Challenges in Computational Sciences

January 28, 2014 -- Graduate students and postdoctoral scholars from
institutions in Europe, Canada, Japan and the United States are invited to
apply for the fifth International Summer School on HPC Challenges in
Computational Sciences, to be held June 1-6, 2014, in Budapest, Hungary. The
summer school is sponsored by the European Union Seventh Framework Program’s
Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe Implementation Phase project
(PRACE-3IP), U.S. National Science Foundation’s Extreme Science and
Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) project, RIKEN Advanced Insti­tute
for Computational Science (RIKEN AICS), and Compute/Calcul Canada.

Leading American, Canadian, European and Japanese computational scientists
and HPC technologists will offer instruction on a variety of topics,

* Access to EU, U.S., Japanese and Canadian HPC-infrastructures
* HPC challenges by discipline (e.g., bioinformatics, computer
science, chemistry, and physics)
* HPC programming proficiencies
* Performance analysis & profiling
* Algorithmic approaches & numerical libraries
* Data-intensive computing
* Scientific visualization

The expense-paid program will benefit advanced scholars from European, U.S.,
Canadian and Japanese institutions who use HPC to conduct research.
Interested students should apply by March 9, 2014. Meals, housing, and
travel expenses will be paid for the selected participants. Applications
from students in all science and engineering fields are welcome. Preference
will be given to applicants with parallel programming experience and a
research plan that will benefit from the utilization of high performance
computing systems.

About PRACE:

The Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE) is an international
non-profit association with its seat in Brussels. The PRACE Research
Infrastructure provides a persistent world-class high performance computing
service for scientists and researchers from academia and industry in Europe.
The  computer systems and their operations accessible through PRACE are
provided by 4 PRACE members (BSC representing Spain, CINECA representing
Italy, GCS representing Germany and GENCI representing France). The
Implementation Phase of PRACE receives funding from the EU’s Seventh
Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) under grant agreements RI-261557,
RI-283493 and RI-312763. For more information, see


RIKEN is one of Japan’s largest research organizations with institutes and
centers in locations throughout Japan. The Advanced Institute for
Computational Science (AICS) strives to create an international center of
excellence dedicated to generating world-leading results through the use of
its world-class supercomputer ”K computer.” It serves as the core of the
“innovative high-performance computer infrastructure” project promoted by
the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology.

About XSEDE:

The Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) is the
most advanced, powerful, and robust collection of integrated digital
resources and services in the world. It is a single virtual system that
scientists can use to interactively share computing resources, data, and
expertise. XSEDE accelerates scientific discovery by enhancing the
productivityof researchers, engineers, and scholars by deepening and
extending the use of XSEDE's ecosystem of advanced digital services and by
advancing and sustainingthe XSEDE advanced digital infrastructure. XSEDE is
a five-year, $121-million project and is supported by the National Science
Foundation. For more information, see
