The HPC Short Courses Consortium wishes to announce the fifth Autumn Academy for High Performance Computing which will take place 12th – 23rd September, 2016 at the Maxwell Centre, University of Cambridge.
Who should attend?
The Autumn Academy is suitable for any researcher who has some familiarity with programming and wishes to start modifying and/or writing code for use on mid and high performance computer resources.
The Academy is particularly well suited to PhD students or those on other research degrees who are about to start their first or second year of research in any area of Scientific Computing, although we also welcome applications from more experienced researchers.
Please consider recommending this to students you will have starting in September/October, as well as to those who started since October 2014.
What is covered?
The Academy will lead students through programming (C or Fortran) parallel programming (OpenMP and MPI) program profiling and optimisation, and common numerical analysis methods. The course will provide both underpinning expertise essential for all application areas, and the opportunity to apply them in focussed workshops within three themes: Computational Fluid Dynamics, Atomistic and Molecular Modelling and Machine Learning
Teaching will take place through a mix of lectures and hands-on practicals using both local and national HPC facilities.

Applications and Deadlines
- Applications should be submitted via the web site by 14th August 2016
- Applications for bursaries should be made by July 3rd 2016.
(Applications received after this date will be considered only if places and funding is still available)
Who is the HPC Short Courses Consortium?
The HPC short Courses Consortium is a group of 12 UK Universities and the STFC Daresbury Science and Innovation Campus, and was formed in response to an EPSRC call to provide advanced short course training in HPC. The Consortium will also be organising a programme of courses on more advanced HPC topics. More information is available from the website.
The Consortium was established and is supported by the EPSRC.
