  • Introduction to PETSc @ MdlS/Idris

    19 - 20 September 2022

    Introduction to PETSc @ MdlS/Idris The Portable, Extensible Toolkit for Scientific Computation (PETSc) is a suite of data structures and routines for the scalable (parallel) solution of scientific applications modeled by partial differential equations ( It enables researchers to delegate the linear algebra part of their applications to a specialized team, and to test various solution methods. The course will provide the necessary basis to get started with PETSc and give an overview of its possibilities. Presentations will alternate with hands-on sessions (in C or Fortran). Learning outcomes : On completion of this course, the participant should - Be able to build and solve simple PDE examples - Use and compare different solvers on these examples - Be familiar with using the on-line documentation - Be able to easily explore other PETsc possibilities relevant to his/her application. Prerequisites : C or Fortran programming. Notions of linear algebra, as well as notions of MPI, would be an asset. 2022-09-19 07:30:00 UTC 2022-09-20 15:00:00 UTC [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []
  • 2022 ACM Europe Summer School

    29 August - 2 September 2022

    2022 ACM Europe Summer School The summer school is open to young computer science researchers and engineers, outstanding MSc students, and senior undergraduate students. Accepted participants will attend formal lectures and practical hands-on sessions. Upon successful completion of the school, all attendees will receive a certificate. Based on scores obtained in practical exercises, the best performing students will receive certificates of honour. Prof. Luca Benini (ETHZ and University of Bologna) will lecture on AI acceleration. Prof. Charlotte Frenkel (Delft University of Technology) will cover Neuromorphic engineering for low-power edge intelligence. BSC scientists: Ken Kennedy laureate Prof. Jesús Labarta, Dr. Filippo Mantovani, and Dr. Roger Ferrer will address state-of-the-art HPC architectures, focusing on vector acceleration. Prof. Jordi Torres and Dr. Josep Lluis Berral (BSC and UPC) will cover topics related to software for AI applications including deep learning and distributed data analytics in HPC. Prof. Mauro Olivieri (University of Rome) will address customised vector acceleration in edge-computing RISC-V soft-cores. Dr. Valerie Taylor (Argonne National Laboratory) will provide a tutorial on “Exploring Energy-Efficiency Tradeoffs for Parallel Scientific Applications.” In addition to lectures, the summer school will include tutorials by Prof. Uri Weiser (Technion) on “Innovation Path: From General Purpose CPU to Machine Learning Accelerator,” and Prof. Per Stenström (Chalmers University of Technology) on the European Processor Initiative. The school will also include invited talks by Prof. Carme Torras, Dr Rosa M. Badia (BSC), Dr Oriol Viñals (DeepMind) and Prof. Ruth Lennon (ACM-W Chair). ACM's newly elected president Prof. Yoannis Ioannidis will deliver a welcome address to all the students. Moreover, Prof. Mario Kovač (Zagreb University) will review the European Processor Initiative (EPI), the flagship project of the EuroHPC Joint Undertaking. Dr. Josephine Wood (EuroHPC-JU) will moderate a panel on “The Future of HPC,” The school will conclude with a final keynote by BSC founder and Director Prof. Mateo Valero (BSC). The school chair is Prof. Mateo Valero, and the local organizing committee is led by Dr. Fabrizio Gagliardi (BSC and ACM) and Prof. Eduard Ayguadé (UPC and BSC). Student participation in the school is free of charge, and the ACM School will cover living expenses related to accommodation and meals for the duration of the school. However, travel costs will not be covered. For exceptionally meritorious students who cannot afford the cost of travel, the school will provide travel grants up to €250 upon successful completion of the school week. The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) is the main sponsor of the school. The industry sponsors are IBM and Huawei. The online application form is available via the following link: Registration closes 1 July 2022.

  • [ONLINE] Data Carpentry @ EPCC 18-21 July 2022

    18 - 21 July 2022

    [ONLINE] Data Carpentry @ EPCC 18-21 July 2022 Data Carpentry develops and teaches workshops on the fundamental data skills needed to conduct research. Its target audience is researchers who have little to no prior computational experience, and its lessons are domain specific, building on learners' existing knowledge to enable them to quickly apply skills learned to their own research. Participants will be encouraged to help one another and to apply what they have learned to their own research problems. The workshop will cover: (Monday morning) Data Organization in Spreadsheets. OpenRefine for Data Cleaning. (Tuesday morning) Introduction to R. (Wednesday morning) Continuation of R: Data analysis and Visualization. (Thursday morning) Data Management with SQL. Each session will run   09:30 - 13:00 BST 2022-07-18 08:30:00 UTC 2022-07-21 12:00:00 UTC [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []
