PRACE Summer School: Taking the Most Out of Supercomputers
 PRACE, the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe organizes a
 summer school on 29 August to 1 September 2011 in Espoo, Finland. The
 school will be hosted by CSC - IT Center for Science Ltd and
 co-organized together by CSC and the PDC supercomputing centre in
 Stockholm, Sweden.
 In this four-day event the participants will learn advanced parallel
 programming skills, which are necessary for taking the most out of the
 largest (Tier-0) supercomputers the PRACE Research Infrastructure is
 offering for European scientists and engineers.
 The speaker list includes William Gropp (University of Illinois
 Urbana-Champaign), one of the key authors of MPI (Message Passing
 Interface) programming paradigm, and Rolf Rabenseifner (HLRS), one of
 the most renowned researchers of hybrid parallel programming models. In
 addition, the following topics will be covered: programming GPGPU
 clusters with CUDA+MPI, low-level single-core performance optimization
 as well as using the Python programming language in supercomputing.
 The largest supercomputers in Scandinavia, i.e. the brand new Cray XE6
 system at PDC and CSC's Cray XT4/XT5 system Louhi will be in disposal
 of the participants.
 Attendance is free of charge for all academics affiliated to PRACE
 member countries. For further details and a registration please visit
