The application deadline has been extended to August 9, 2021.
The course consists of lectures and hands-on training on modern, GPU-accelerated high-performance computing: GPU programming and GPU code optimization at scale, as well as understanding and applying machine learning methods. The course includes also scientific case studies about using GPUs in various disciplines. The tutors and lecturers are experts in these fields providing various interesting aspects in the course topics.
The five days of school (11-15 October 2021), organised by CSC – IT Center for Science, are filled with hacking, leisure activities and having a good time together in Vuokatti, in central Finland. Also, the Autumn School includes a visit to the CSC’s Data Center in Kajaani, the home of one of the most powerful supercomputers in the world: LUMI. It is a unique opportunity for the participants to familiarize themselves with the cutting-edge data infrastructure in the field of HPC.
The applicants can choose according to their interest which one from three parallel hands-on tracks they wish to attend:
- Introduction to deep learning
- Introduction to GPU programming with OpenMP
- Hackathon: Optimizing GPU applications on LUMI supercomputer.
