PRACE is organising two summer activities for Master+PhD students. Both activities are expense-paid programmes and will allow participants to travel and stay at a hosting location and learn about HPC:
- The 2017 International Summer School on HPC Challenges in Computational Sciences
- The PRACE Summer of HPC 2017 programme
The main objective of this programme is to enable HiPEAC member companies in Europe to have access to highly skilled and exceptionally motivated research talent. In turn, it offers PhD students from Europe a unique opportunity to experience the industrial research environment and to work on R&D projects solving real problems.
Below explains both programmes in detail. If you want to learn more about PRACE, click here.
2017 International Summer School on HPC Challenges in Computational Sciences – Applications due 6 March 2017
The summer school is sponsored by Compute/Calcul Canada, the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE), the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE) and the RIKEN Advanced Institute for Computational Science (RIKEN AICS).
Graduate students and postdoctoral scholars from institutions in Canada, Europe, Japan and the United States are invited to apply for the eighth International Summer School on HPC Challenges in Computational Sciences, to be held June 25 – 30 2017, in Boulder, Colorado, United States of America.
Leading computational scientists and HPC technologists from the U.S., Europe, Japan and Canada will offer instructions on a variety of topics and also provide advanced mentoring.
- HPC challenges by discipline
- HPC programming proficiencies
- Performance analysis & profiling
- Algorithmic approaches & numerical libraries
- Data-intensive computing
- Scientific visualization
- Canadian, EU, Japanese and U.S. HPC-infrastructures

PRACE Summer of HPC 2017 – Applications due 19 February 2017
The PRACE Summer of HPC is a PRACE outreach and training programme that offers summer placements at top HPC centres across Europe to late-stage undergraduates and early-stage postgraduate students. Up to twenty top applicants from across Europe will be selected to participate. Participants will spend two months working on projects related to PRACE technical or industrial work and produce a report and a visualisation or video of their results.
Early-stage postgraduate and late-stage undergraduate students are invited to apply for the PRACE Summer of HPC 2017 programme, to be held in July & August 2017. Consisting of a training week and two months on placement at top HPC centres around Europe, the programme affords participants the opportunity to learn and share more about PRACE and HPC, and includes accommodation, a stipend and travel to their HPC centre placement.
The programme will run from 2 July to 31 August 2017, with a kick-off training week at IT4I Supercomputing Centre in Ostrava attended by all participants. Flights, accommodation and a stipend will be provided to all successful applicants. Two prizes will be awarded to the participants who produce the best project and best embody the outreach spirit of the programme.
