Second EU/US Summer School on HPC Challenges in Computational Sciences


August 7-12, 2011
Embassy Suites, Lake Tahoe, California




The US National Science Foundation’s TeraGrid, the European Union Seventh Framework Program’s Distributed European Infrastructure for Supercomputing Applications (DEISA), and the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE) are pleased to announce the second joint EU-US summer school on High Performance Computing (HPC) Challenges in Computational Science, August 7-12, 2011 at Embassy Suites Lake Tahoe Hotel and Resort, Lake Tahoe, California.

Sixty US and European graduate and postdoctoral scholars will be selected to participate in a six-day educational and team-building program, fostering international and multidisciplinary research collaborations.

Leading American and European computational scientists and HPC technologists will present a variety of topics, including:

  • An overview of EU and US cyberinfrastructure
  • 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 EU and US institutions who currently use HPC to conduct research. Applications from qualified candidates will be accepted through April 25, 2011. Participants will be selected and notified via email by May 9, 2011.
