THREE WEEKS *** THREE SUBJECTS
Visualization * Big Data * HPC
The 2015 Hartree Centre Summer Schools will consist of three separate weeks of study - each week focussing on a specific topic. You may attend all three weeks, or pick the week most relevant to your area of study. Each week is limited to 45 registrations.
- Week 1: 15-19June "Visualization"
Leaders: Hank Childs (LBL, Oregon) Hamish Carr (Leeds) - Learn the skills necessary to develop applications that enable you to assimilate complex information quickly and easily and discover the latest visualization tools.
- Week 2: 29 June - 3 July "Big Data"
Leaders: Nicole Barry (IBM) Chris Williams (IBM) - Learn about the opportunities and challenges that Big Data & Analytics presents including the chance to get hands on.
- Week 3: 6-10 July "High Performance Computing"
Leaders: Jack Dongarra (Tennessee) Kirk E. Jordan (IBM) - Learn the skills necessary to develop applications that run on the top 20 machines of theTop500 list, now and in the future.
Target Audience and Pre-Requisites
The Summer Schools are aimed at researchers in academia and industry encountering complex application problems that require significant HPC / Visualization / Big Data resources. Typically the attendee will be nearing completion, or will have already obtained, a PhD (or equivalent) in a scientific or engineering discipline that uses computation as a tool and will have some experience of programming in high level programming language (e.g., Fortran, C, C++). There will be some experience of parallel programming (e.g., MPI, OpenMP, or CUDA) or Visualization or Big Data, an understanding of mathematical and computational methods for the solution of partial differential equations plus an understanding of an application area.
