Third LinkSCEEM Cross-sectional HPC Workshop November 2012
The LinkSCEEM-2 FP7 project in collaboration with the American University of Cairo (AUC) and the Faculty of Computers and Information - Cairo University (FCI-CU) are jointly organizing a five day 2-workshop training event between the 11th and 15th November 2012.
Lectures on the 11th and 12th November will be held at Cairo University and will include introductory courses and hands-on training on parallel computing.
On the 13th-15th November the LinkSCEEM 3-day Cross Sectional HPC Workshop will be held at the American University in Cairo. Lectures will include four parallel training sessions in selected scientific fields targeted towards participants’ interests. The four parallel sessions will be the following:
1.Structural and Computational Biophysics (featured software: NAMD2)
2.Real-Time Density Functional Theory (DFT) based Simulation (featured software: Octopus)
The LinkSCEEM-2 FP7 project would like to announce fellowship opportunities for advanced High Performance Computing (HPC) training during the Third LinkSCEEM Cross Sectional HPC Workshop from 13-15 November 2012 at the American University in Cairo.
The workshop targets young researchers from the region and will address programming training needs of current and prospective HPC users from various computational scientific fields.
Access to LinkSCEEM HPC infrastructure will be provided for training purposes. Hands-on guidance in preparing projects for HPC usage will be given during the workshop.
The introductory workshop will be held at Cairo University. The Third LinkSCEEM Cross-sectional HPC Workshop will be held at the American University in Cairo.
Language: English (materials will be published in English)
Registration Fee: 100 Euros
A number of competitive funded LinkSCEEM fellowships are available for this workshop. 20 fellowships will cover the workshop attendance fee cost and will also provide financial contribution to flights and accommodation costs (3 nights single room accommodation or 5 nights for shared room accommodation). Further fellowships will only cover the workshop attendance fee cost.
Fellowships will be awarded to candidates who:
- Are experienced and are involved in Computational Science/HPC research projects or studies.
- Identify how attending the workshop can help them in their future work.
LinkSCEEM workshop participants are encouraged to attend the introductory workshop to be held on the 11th and 12th of November.
Special hotel rates can be made available for LinkSCEEM participants who will accept shared rooms - where the cost of 5 nights shared accommodation will be equivalent to 3 nights single room accommodation.
