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 ten top applicants from across Europe will be selected to participate. Participants will spend two months working on projects related to PRACE technical or industrial work and ideally produce a visualisation or video of their results.
The programme will run from 1 July to 30 August 2014. Flights, accommodation and a stipend will be provided to all successful applicants; all participants need to bring is an interest in computing and some enthusiasm!
Participating in the PRACE Summer of HPC
Applications are welcome from all disciplines. Previous experience in HPC is not required, some coding knowledge is a prerequisite but the most important attribute is a desire to learn, and share, more about HPC.
Applications will open on 25 March 2014 via www.summerofhpc.prace-ri.eu
