High Performance Computing in Luxembourg

8th Supercomputing Camp (SC-Camp 2017)

8th Intl. Supercomputing Camp 2017

SC-Camp is a summer school and non-profit event about Super Computing and Distributed Systems. It proposes a series of courses around the thematic of High Performance Computing with an important focus on practical sessions (more than half of the time). It targets Master and PhD students in the field of Computer Sciences, Engineering and any other fields that could benefit from HPC (Physics & Material Sciences, Biology/Bioinformatics, Finance, etc.).

SC-Camp is a non-profit event, addressed to all students including those that lack of financial backup, so we try to keep the cost for the students as low as possible.

The 8th International Supercomputing Camp (SC-Camp 2017) was organized in Cadiz (Spain) from October 22th to October 27th, 2017. It used to feature 5 days of scientific sessions, during which several programming practical sessions will be held. Several members of the UL HPC Team have participated as lecturers and keynote speakers to this event.

The summer school focus on the following topics:

  • Distributed Systems: Grid/Cluster/Cloud/Volunteer Computing
  • Distributed parallel programming with MPI
  • Shared Memory parallel programming with OpenMP
  • Accelerators: GPUs with CUDA, XeonPhi
  • Debugging and Performance Optimization
  • Data Analysis with R
  • Resource/Job Management & Scheduling
  • Big Data
