Second LinkSCEEM General User Meeting June 2012
Date: From Monday 25 June 2012
To Wednesday 27 June 2012
Location: The Cyprus Institute - Athalassa Campus
The LinkSCEEM-2 FP7 project is organizng a 3-day General User Meeting, during June 25 - 27, 2012 in Nicosia, Cyprus. The General User Meeting is part of the LinkSCEEM-2 project training activities aiming to prepare the Eastern Mediterranean scientific community for the use of HPC systems.
The meeting targets young researchers from the region and will address programming training needs of current and prospective HPC users both from Europe and the Eastern Mediterranean.
During the event, researchers and students will be instructed on topics such as distributed and parallel programming paradigms, with a focus on OpenMP and OpenACC programming skills and concepts. The agenda will contain theoretical sessions followed by hands-on training to enable deep understanding of the programming concepts covered and their application on modern HPC resources. Trainees will be given access to HPC systems of the Computation-based Science and Technology Research Center (CaSToRC) where they will be able to carry out the hands-on exercises and practise what they have learned.
The user meeting will be held at the Cyprus Institute, Guy Ourisson Building.
Language:English (materials will be published in English)
There are 25 funded competitive fellowships available to attend the general user meeting. Additionally, a further 10 fellowships will be awarded under the Middle East Women Engaged in Mathematics and Science (MEWEMS) LinkSCEEM-2 program. Both fellowships will provide financial contribution to flights and accommodation costs.
Fellowships will be awarded to suitable candidates who:
1. Are involved in Computational Science/HPC research projects or studies
2. Identify how attending the general user meeting can help them in their future work.
3. Have programming experience in either C, Fortran or a similar high level programming language.
