Graduate students and postdoctoral scholars from institutions in Australia, Europe, Japan and the United States are invited to applyfor the 13th International High Performance Computing (HPC) Summer School, to be held on 7-12 July, 2024 in Kobe, Japan, hosted by the RIKEN Center for Computational Science.

The summer school will familiarise students in computational sciences with major state-of-the-art aspects of HPC and Big Data Analytics for a variety of scientific disciplines, catalyse the formation of networks, provide advanced mentoring, facilitate international exchange and open up further career options.


Leading computational scientists and HPC technologists from partner regions will offer instruction in parallel sessions on a variety of topics such as:

  • HPC and Big Data challenges in major scientific disciplines
  • Shared-memory programming, distributed-memory programming, GPU programming
  • Performance analysis and optimisation
  • Software engineering
  • Numerical libraries
  • Big Data analytics and Deep Learning
  • Scientific Visualization
  • Australian, European, Japanese and U.S. HPC infrastructures

The expense-paid program will benefit scholars from Australian, European, Japanese and U.S. institutions who use advanced computing in their research. European applicants must be affiliated with an institution, as well as being a national, of a member state of the EuroHPC Joint Undertaking.
