Applications for Two PRACE Summer Activities Are Now Being Accepted

Both activities are expense-paid programs and will allow participants to travel and stay at a hosting location and learn about HPC: The 2017 International Summer School on HPC Challenges in Computational Sciences as well as The PRACE Summer of HPC 2017 program. The summer school is sponsored by Compute/Calcul Canada, the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE), the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE) and the RIKEN Advanced Insti­tute for Computational Science (RIKEN AICS). Graduate students and postdoctoral scholars from institutions in Canada, Europe, Japan and the United States are invited to apply for the eighth International Summer School on HPC Challenges in Computational Sciences, to be held June 25 – 30 2017, in Boulder, Colorado, United States of America. The PRACE Summer of HPC is a PRACE outreach and training program that offers summer placements at top HPC centers across Europe to late-stage undergraduates and early-stage postgraduate students. Up to twenty top applicants from across Europe will be selected to participate. Participants will spend two months working on projects related to PRACE technical or industrial work and produce a report and a visualization or video of their results. Early-stage postgraduate and late-stage undergraduate students are invited to apply for the PRACE Summer of HPC 2017 program, to be held in July & August 2017. Consisting of a training week and two months on placement at top HPC centers around Europe, the program affords participants the opportunity to learn and share more about PRACE and HPC, and includes accommodation, a stipend and travel to their HPC center placement.
