  • CSC Summer School in High-Performance Computing - June 27 - July 5, 2017, Espoo, Finland.

    The 8th CSC Summer School brings together undergraduate and graduate students and postdoctoral researchers in different disciplines of scientific computing from all over the world. The contents consist of lectures and hands-on training on parallel programming, code optimization and other necessary skills in development of scientific software

    The following topics will be covered:
    • Fortran 95/2003 and C programming languages in scientific programming
    • Basics of parallel programming using the message-passing (MPI) and threading (OpenMP) paradigms
    • Efficient input/output using parallel I/O
    • More advanced topics in MPI
    • Hybrid parallel programming combining MPI, OpenMP
    • High-performance tools for analyzing and visualizing large datasets
    • Building real-world HPC application suites


  • Graz Summer School on Applications of Quasi-Monte Carlo methods, June 12 - 14, 2017, Graz, Austria

  • February 21, 2012 - Intensive course on Advanced Monte Carlo methods - computational challengies - Prof. Ivan Dimov, IICT-BAS, Department of Parallel Algorithms - Abstract


    The school illustrates the motivations to conduct sensitivity analysis and offers an accessible treatment to the techniques used in global sensitivity analysis. The program begins with the first principles of sensitivity analysis and guides the student through the full range of recommended practices with exercises and application examples.

    Candidatures to the school have to be sent to sensitivity-analysis at by 15 February 2012. The school can accomodate up to 25 participants. The evaluation of candidates will be done in March. Successful candidates will be informed not later than April 2nd.

    The instructors are Andrea Saltelli (JRC), William Becker (JRC), Stefano Tarantola (JRC), Bertrand Iooss (EDF, France), Emanuele Borgonovo (Bocconi University) and Sergei Kucherenko (Imperial College London).

    The tariff will be approximately 550€ and includes four nights accommodation with breakfast, 4 lunches, 7 coffee breaks. The draft program is available through this link:
