CSC Summer School in High-Performance Computing

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventParticipant of a conference, workshop, panel, session or tutorial


The school is aimed for graduate students working in various fields of science, e.g., chemistry, physics, life sciences, engineering or economics. 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. Be warned, though, that at this time of the year, the sun will not set almost at all in the Nordic night!

The following topics will be covered (for a detailed program, see further below):

Fortran 95/2003 and C programming languages in scientific programming
Basics of parallel programming using the message-passing (MPI) and threading (OpenMP) paradigms
Efficient input/output using parallel I/O
More advanced topics in MPI
Hybrid parallel programming combining MPI, OpenMP
Programming GPUs
Building real-world HPC application suites.

The participants will get a certificate from the school that contains a recommendation to your home university to grant you 5 credits (ECTS) for the school.
Learning outcome

After the summer school participants will be able to:

Identify the most important parallel programming concepts
Construct simple parallel programs with C or Fortran programming languages
Recocgnize advanced parallel programming constructs
