Cyprus Advanced HPC Workshop Winter 2012

There are 20 funded competitive fellowships available to attend a 3-day workshop starting on February 6th 2012, at the Cyprus Institute, with hands-on guidance for participants in preparing their project for HPC usage. Beginning in January 2012, the resources of the LinkSCEEM-2 project will be enhanced by the Cy-Tera GPU-accelerated HPC system, capable of ~35 TFlops/s peak performance, making this a golden opportunity to prepare to use this resource.

The Advanced HPC Workshop in Cyprus will focus on areas directly relevant to the applicants interests and address topics such as:

  1. General material relating to the LinkSCEEM-2 systems
  2. Parallel training sessions in selected areas targeted to the participants interests.

Initial suggestions include:

  1. Computational fluid dynamics (featured software: OpenFOAM)
  2. Graph partitioning (featured software: metis/parmetis)
  3. GPU Kernel development for application porting (featured software: CUDA / OpenCL)
  4. Molecular Dynamics (featured software: GROMACS)
  5. Computational Biology & Bioinformatics (MrBayes & RAxML)

The detailed program is visible below:

Posts are awarded to suitable candidates who:

  1. wish to implement a specific scientific project, and
  2. can highlight how the HPC resources of LinkSCEEM can help them achieve their goals. Joint/group applications are especially encouraged although no more than 2 applicants per project may receive acceptance.
