We are pleased to announce 2016 Ontario Summer School on High Performance Computing – West hosted by SHARCNET. This year, Summer School West will be held from May 30 – June 3 at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario.
Pre-register online NOW
The deadline for Summer School West pre-registration is May 20th at midnight. Please be aware that summer school registration is a two-step process. To finalize the registration one will have to click on a link in an email which will be sent to all attendees a few days before the event.
This five-day summer school includes lectures and labs on programming distributed and multicore systems and on various topics pertaining to scientific computing. Attendees will learn how to program distributed memory systems (networked computers) known as "clusters", shared memory multicore systems and GPUs. We will also cover common programming languages (including Python and Matlab/Octave) and software packages pertaining to specific research domains.
We are also running a Software Carpentry event in conjunction with our Summer School. This two-day event will teach basic lab skills for scientific computing, and will cover topics of a more introductory nature (including basics of Unix shell and version control) which are normally not covered by our Summer Schools. This workshop will take place on May 24-25 at McMaster University. To register, follow this link.
A long-running event for SHARCNET, Summer School was introduced to users over a decade ago. Summer School is now an Ontario-wide event which is organized and run through Compute Ontario.
Summer School (central) will run July 11-15 at the University of Toronto, and the University of Ottawa will run Summer School (east) August 8-12. Note that the courses offered by the three sites may be slightly different. Please check the site specific programs for details.
While there is no fee to attend Summer School and Software Carpentry, registration is required.
