Building on last year’s successful experience and in order to support an extended audience of students in their learning process, the Swiss National Supercomputing Centre (ETH Zurich / CSCS) and Università della Svizzera italiana (USI) have decided to hold the annual Summer School as an online course again this year. The school will be held from July 19 to 30, 2021

The program will focus on the effective exploitation of state-of-the-art hybrid High-Performance Computing (HPC) systems with a special focus on Data Analytics.

The following topics will be covered:

  • GPU architectures
  • GPU programming (CUDA and OpenACC)
  • Performance optimization and scientific libraries
  • Interactive supercomputing (JupyterLab)
  • Python HPC libraries (Numpy/SciPy/Dask/Numba)
  • Introduction to Machine Learning and GPU optimized frameworks (Rapids)
  • Deep Learning on HPC platforms (TensorFlow)  

Deadline for applications: April 25, 2021.

Students will be able to earn six ECT credit points for this course from Università della Svizzera italiana (subject to online exam). 

The content of the course is tailored for 3rd year Bachelor’s students, Master’s students, Ph.D students, and early stage Postdocs interested in learning parallel programming models and having hands-on experience using HPC systems.
