Summer of HPC

About the PRACE Summer of HPC

Summer of HPC is a PRACE programme that offers summer placements at HPC centres across Europe to late stage undergraduates and early stage postgraduate students. Up to twenty top applicants from across Europe will be selected to participate and applications for the program usually open in January 2013. Participants will spend two months working on projects related to PRACE technical or industrial work.

The programme will runs between July and August of each year, with a kick-off training week in June attended by all participants. Flights, accommodation and a stipend are provided to all successful applicants; all participants need to bring is an interest in computing and some enthusiasm!

Prizes are awarded for the best participants.

Participating in the PRACE Summer of HPC

Applications are welcome from all disciplines. Previous experience in HPC is not required, as training will be provided. Some coding knowledge is a prerequisite but the most important attribute is a desire to learn, and share, more about HPC. A strong visual flair and an interest in blogging, video blogging or social media are desirable.
