About the PRACE Summer of HPC
Summer of HPC is a PRACE programme that offers summer placements at HPC centres across Europe to late stage undergraduates and early stage postgraduate students. Up to twenty top applicants from across Europe will be selected to participate. Participants will spend two months working on projects related to PRACE technical or industrial work and produce a visualisation or video of their results.
The programme will run from 1July to 30 August 2013, with a kick-off training week in Edinburgh attended by all participants. Flights, accommodation and a stipend will be provided to all successful applicants; all participants need to bring is an interest in computing and some enthusiasm! Prizes will be awarded for the best participants.
Participating in the PRACE Summer of HPC
Applications are welcome from all disciplines. Previous experience in HPC is not required, as training will be provided. Some coding knowledge is a prerequisite but the most important attribute is a desire to learn, and share, more about HPC. A strong visual flair and an interest in blogging, video blogging or social media are desirable. Applications will open on 25 January 2013 via www.summerofhpc.prace-ri.eu
