Primary tabs

Summer of HPC is a PRACE programme that offers summer placements at HPC centres across Europe to late stage undergraduates and early stage postgraduate students. Participants will spend from 29th June to 31 August 2015 working on projects related to PRACE scientific or industrial work and ideally produce a visualization or video of their results.

The third edition of the Summer of HPC starts with the training week, hosted this year by the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC). A total of 24 European undergraduates and early stage postgraduate students will spend the last week of June (29th June until 3rd July) in Barcelona receiving an intensive HPC course given by BSC researchers.

After this week, BSC will host two students under this program: Rumyana Rumenova, from UK, and Simos Kazantzidis, from Greece. They will learn principles of data visualization applied to the science and HPC environment, as well as data and imaging streaming technologies, as well as enjoying Barcelona and its culture. Both will be mentored by Fernando Cuchietti, Date Pre and post Processing Group Manager at BSC.
