PRACE, the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (www.prace-ri.eu), has selected six of its members' sites: Barcelona Supercomputing Center (Spain), CINECA - Consorzio Interuniversitario (Italy), CSC - IT Center for Science Ltd (Finland), EPCC at the University of Edinburgh (UK), Gauss Centre for Supercomputing (Germany) and Maison de la Simulation (France) as the first PRACE Advanced Training Centres.
The mission of the PRACE Advanced Training Centres (PATCs) is to carry out and coordinate training and education activities that enable the European research community to utilise the computational infrastructure available through PRACE. The long-term vision is that such centres will become the hubs and key drivers of European high-performance computing education.
The students and can benefit from the hands-on sessions and communication with internationally renowned instructors. Participants will be issued a Certificate of Attendance. PATC courses are attended by specialists from across Europe and all lectures and materials are in English. The PATCs do not charge fees for their courses. The number of seats for all courses is limited.
