Call for participation:
CSCS-USI Summer School on Computer Simulations in Science and Engineering, 8-19 July 2013, Lugano, Switzerland
Sponsored by Swiss Graduate Program FoMICS “Foundations in Mathematics and Informatics for Computer Simulations in Science and Engineering”.
CSCS-USI will be hosting a two-week summer school on parallel programming aimed at graduate/PhD students who are new to the world of high performance computing and who wish to learn the basic skills required to write, develop and maintain parallel applications in scientific computing. The school will cover topics such as the principles of parallel programming, distributed memory programming with MPI, shared memory programming using OpenMP, hybrid programming with MPI/OpenMP, as well as some advanced topics.
Applications and visualizations are motivated through a simple Finite Volume solver for the 2D shallow water equations (with application to tsunami simulations).
