Virtual School of Computational Science & Engineering Summer Schools

Graduate and doctoral students from all disciplines can gain valuable skills in computational science -- including programming for many-core processors and heterogeneous systems and leveraging cloud resources -- during hands-on summer schools offered by the Virtual School for Computational Science and Engineering (VSCSE).

The VSCSE helps students use emerging petascale computing resources to address real problems in a wide range of science and engineering disciplines.

The summer schools for 2012 are:

(1) Programming Heterogeneous Parallel Computing Systems (July 10-13 2012) [GPGPU]

(2) Science Cloud Summer School (July 30 - Aug 3 2012)

(3) Proven Algorithmic Techniques for Many-core Processors (Aug 13-17 2012)

These schools will be delivered to sites nationwide using High-definition videoconferencing technologies, allowing students to participate from convenient locations across the country where they will be able to work with a cohort of fellow computational scientists, have access to local experts, and interact in real time with school instructors.

Registration for each school is $100.
