NICS & JICS at UT Knoxville Supporting Distributed Summer Schools

The Virtual School of Computational Science and Engineering (VSCSE) is excited to announce Summer School courses for 2012. The VSCSE provides courses and learning resources to help computational science students use emerging petascale computing resources to address real domain science problems.

These courses will be delivered to a number of sites nationwide using high definition video conferencing technologies, allowing students to travel to a number of convenient locations where the will be able to work with a cohort of fellow computational scientists, have access to local experts and interact virtually with course instructors.

The National Institute for Computational Sciences, along with the Joint Institute for Computational Sciences, will be a Live Node for two different summer workshops sponsored by the Virtual School for Computational Science & Engineering. The local sessions will be held in the video teleconferencing facilities at UTK’s Communications Building.

Students and Faculty interested in attending may check the announcement pages (see below) to find locations and apply.

The summer courses for 2012 are:

  • Programming Heterogeneous Parallel Computing Systems (July 10 - 13, 2012)
  • Proven Algorithmic Techniques for Many-core Processors (August 13 - 17, 2012)

Registration fees for these courses are $100 and help the host sites offset their hospitality and facility costs.
