On 13 January 2016, the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE) opened applications for the traditional summer HPC school. 

PRACE invites students to join its Summer of HPC 2016 programme, which will be organised in July and August of 2016. The programme includes an introductory one week course and a two-month internship in one of the PRACE centres for high performance computing (HPC) in Europe. One of the centres is also the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering of the University of Ljubljana, which will enrol two selected students. The Faculty is also the programme coordinator for the second year in a row. The programme also provides its participants a scholarship, accommodation and reimbursement of travel expenses.

More on the Summer of HPC 2016 programme

The Summer of HPC 2016 programme will be organised between 4 July and 31 August 2016. It will begin with a one week training course for all participants at the high performance computing centre in Juelich in Germany. Afterwards, the participants will be assigned among the ten PRACE HPC centres in Europe where they will participate in PRACE scientific and industrial projects and produce a visualisation or video to presenting results of their work. At the end of the programme PRACE will award two of the programme's best participants for their work and best visualisation and then name them ambassadors of HPC.

What is PRACE?

PRACE (The Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe) is an international non-profit association with headquarters in Brussels. The PRACE research infrastructure provides leading high power computing services to scientists and researchers from academia and industry in Europe. The computer systems and their operations, available within PRACE, are provided by four PRACE members (BSC from Spain, CINECA from Italy, GCS from Germany and GENCI from France). The implementation phase of PRACE receives its funds from the European Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) under GA RI-312763 and from the European Horizon Programme 2020 (2014-2020) under GA 65383.
