Call for the RIKEN International HPC Summer School 2018

We call for the "RIKEN International HPC Summer School 2018", that is cosponsored by Cybermedia Center, Osaka University, as follows.


RIKEN Center for Computational Science(R-CCS)will be holding a summer school to give young researchers in computational science an opportunity to learn programming techniques for parallel computers, aiming to foster scientists who will lead the field on the international stage in the future.
Scientists from R-CCS will provide lectures and the K computer will be used for hands-on training.
This program will be provided in English.

Date: July.2(Mon)-4(Wed)
Location: Auditorium, 6th floor of the R-CSS building in Kobe, Japan


    Students who reside in Japan and are enrolled in a Ph.D. program, post-doctoral scientists,
    and early career scientists affiliated with universities or research institutions.
    Scientists and engineers affiliated with private companies.


Application requirements:

    • Approximately 20 seats are available on a first-come, First-served basis.
      Adjustments may be made to balance applicants from different college and other institute.
    • Apply from
      Application deadline: May 16(Wed.)5pm(Japan time)
    • Ideal participants have programming experience using C or Fortran, have used Linux(at least can use an editor on Linux), and have basic parallel programing experience.
    • Bring your own laptop computer with you for the summer school.
    • Full participation for the duration of the program is required, in principle.
    • RIKEN will pay for students' travel and accommodation expenses.
      Expenses will be reimbursed after the workshop via bank transfer in accordance with RIKEN regulations.
