International Spring School on High Performance Computing

Third registration deadline: January 20, 2018

HighPer 2018 will be a research training event with a global scope aiming at updating participants about the most recent advances in the critical and fast developing area of high performance computing, which covers a large spectrum of current exciting research and industrial innovation with an extraordinary potential for a huge impact on scientific discoveries, medicine, engineering, business models, and society itself. Renowned academics and industry pioneers will lecture and share their views with the audience.

Most subareas of high performance computing will be displayed, from foundations, infrastructure and management to applications. Major challenges in the field will be identified through 2 keynote lectures, 24 five-hour and fifteen-minute courses, and 1 round table, which will tackle the most active and promising topics.
