Proven Algorithmic Techniques for Manycore Processors Summer School

July 20th, 2011

The Virtual School of Computational Science and Engineering (VSCSE) will offer a hands-on course for graduate students August 15-19:

Proven Algorithmic Techniques for Manycore Processors

This course 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 the weeklong course is $100. 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.
