The CSC Summer School in High-Performance Computing

The legendary The CSC Summer School in High Performance Computing is doing a comeback this summer in collaboration with EuroCC.

The event will take place in 26.6.2022 – 5.7.2022.

The school is aimed for graduate students working in various fields of science, e.g., chemistry, physics, life sciences, engineering or economics as well as Industrial R&D professionals. Also undergraduates as well as post-docs will find the school very useful.The ten days of school are filled with coding, sports, leisure activities and having good time together. It will be an experience you will never forget with the midnight sun in the Nordic night next to breathtaking wilderness!

The following topics will be covered: 

  • Basics of parallel programming using message-passing (MPI) and threading (OpenMP) paradigms
  • Programming GPUs with OpenMP and HIP
  • Efficient input/output using parallel I/O
  • More advanced topics in MPI
  • Hybrid parallel programming combining MPI, OpenMP, HIP
  • Building real-world HPC applications.

PRACE Advanced HPC Workshop

Registration for the PRACE Advanced HPC Workshop is opened:
This special online advanced HPC track of courses consists of three separate training events on advanced HPC topics. The advanced track begins with the Message Passing Interface (MPI), the dominating programming model, continues with node level performance optimisation and finishes with hybrid programming. All the advanced courses include effective and personalised, practical hands-on sessions with relevant exercises. The courses include small group breakout rooms.
Target Audience & Prerequisites: These courses are targeted to intermediate and advanced level users, who already have the basic knowledge of HPC and parallel computing skills.
You need to have previous knowledge to participate in all 3 courses of this PRACE Advanced HPC Workshop, in particular you should have:
– Good knowledge of C/C++ or Fortran,
– Good knowledge of threading using OpenMP,
– Basic knowledge of modern CPU architectures,
– Be able to work on the Linux command line.
All trainers are the top specialists in the leading PRACE Training Centres and their partner institutions.
17-20 May 2022 – Parallelization with MPI @ VSC Vienna

The EuroHPC Summit Week (EHPCSW) 2022 will gather the main European HPC stakeholders from technology suppliers and HPC infrastructures to scientific and industrial HPC users in Europe. As in previous years, PRACE, the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe, co-locates its Scientific and Industrial Conference (PRACEdays22) at the EuroHPC Summit Week 2022. Furthermore, the EHPCSW 2022 will provide a great opportunity for the attendees to network.

The main organisers of the EHPCSW 2022 are the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE), and the European Technology Platform for High-Performance Computing (ETP4HPC). The EuroHPC Joint Undertaking (EuroHPC JU) and the European Commission (EC) are also involved in the organisation of the conference. The logistical organisation is supported by a local host: for the 2022 edition, this will be GENCI (Grand équipement national de calcul intensif).


The HPC laboratory team via the Sofia University is involved in the Project HERCULES

The HPC laboratory team via the Sofia University is involved in the Project HERCULES, Funder by the EuroHPC JU (Horizon 2020).
The project aims at establishment  the first pan-European Master for High Performance Computing (HPC).
As of 15 February 2022, students can apply to EUMaster4HPC, the first pan-European Master for High Performance Computing (HPC). With funding from the EuroHPC Joint Undertaking, the master programme will train the next generation of HPC experts in Europe and provide students with outstanding career prospects in the rapidly expanding field of HPC.From September 2022, eight European universities will offer EUMaster4HPC courses to a first cohort of 50 students. The eight universities are the following:  University of Luxembourg (Luxembourg), Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (Spain), Politecnico di Milano (Italy), Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (Germany), Sorbonne Université (France), Sofia University St. Kliment Ohridski (Bulgaria)Università della Svizzera Italiana (Switzerland), Kungliga Tekniska Hoegskolan (Sweden).

By bringing together major players in HPC education in Europe, EUMaster4HPC unifies existing programmes into a common pan-European curriculum to educate students in areas such as the design, deployment, operation, and/or the use of current and future generation HPC and HPC-related technologies in Europe.

EUMaster4HPC emphasises collaboration across Europe with innovative teaching paradigms such as co-teaching and strong connections with the industry and the best specialists in HPC education to develop the most relevant and up-to-date teaching contents.

This unique pan-European curriculum will provide a coordinated approach to HPC education and training in Europe that could be adopted by other universities.

The creation of a European network of HPC specialists will strengthen mobility and mutual support between students, teachers and industrial experts. A particular focus on mobility of students and teachers will enable students to rapidly gain experience through internships and exposure to European supercomputing centres.

Students can apply online through the application form until 15 May 2022.
