The Virtual School of Computational Science and Engineering (VSCSE) will offer two hands-on courses for graduate students this summer:
Petascale Programming Environments and Tools (July 12-15)
Proven Algorithmic Techniques for Manycore Processors (August 15-19)
These courses will be delivered to a number of sites nationwide-including the National Center for Supercomputing Applications at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign-using high-definition video conferencing technologies. Students at all sites will be able to work with a cohort of fellow computational scientists, have access to local teaching assistants, and interact virtually with course instructors.
Registration for each weeklong course is $100. For students attending at NCSA/Illinois, however, the $100 fee will be waived.
Please visit www.vscse.org for more information or hub.vscse.org to register.
About the Virtual School of Computational Science and Engineering
The Virtual School of Computational Science and Engineering (VSCSE) helps graduate students, post-docs, and young professionals from all disciplines and institutions across the country gain the skills they need to use advanced computational resources to advance their research.
Often the practical aspects of computational science fall between the cracks, as computer science departments focus on what computer scientists need to know and domain science and engineering departments focus on the applications of computer science to those disciplines. The Virtual School was created to help students fill those knowledge gaps, preparing them to use emerging petascale (and then exascale) computing resources. Participating in the Virtual School also helps students build networks of fellow researchers who they can turn to for support and collaboration.
