Laboratory LECAD of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering of the University of Ljubljana organises, in cooperation with international partners, international summer school on the topic of HPC challenges in computational sciences, intended for postgraduate students and postdoctoral researchers from Europe, America, Canada and Japan. The sessions will take place from 26 June to 1 July 2016 at the Faculty of Law of the University of Ljubljana.  

The summer school is financed by Compute/Calcul Canada, Extreme Science in Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) with funding from the U.S. National Science Foundation, the European programme Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE), and the Japanese RIKEN Advanced Insti­tute for Computational Science (RIKEN AICS)

Leading American, European and Japanese computational scientists and HPC specialists will offer teachings in connection with a range of topics, such as HPC challenges in individual disciplines (earth, life, materials, physics, etc.), HPC programming, scientific visualisation, etc. 

Applications are accepted until 15 February 2016. The program is intended for candidates using HPC in their research. Selected candidates will be provided with food and accommodation, and travel expenses of candidates from outside Europe will be reimbursed. All graduate students and postdoctoral researchers from all scientific and engineering branches are welcome. Priority will be given to candidates with experience in parallel programming and research ideas that can benefit from the use of supercomputer systems.
