Summer School in Advanced Scientific Computing

Interdisciplinary research,
education and capacity building

11 May 2016

From June 20 to June 23
University of Minho, Braga

This Summer School is targeted for researchers and PG students in:

(i) Computer Science, which aims to update their knowledge in development of efficient software that takes advantage of current multi-core and many-core processor architectures, and

(ii) Computational Sciences, which aims to improve the efficiency of their end-user software, both at the algorithm and data structures level, to to get more robust and faster code execution when using multi-core and manycore computing systems.

The School agenda follows a success program developed at the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC), which will be offered again this Summer at TACC in August ( All instructors from TACC will come to Braga to present their courses for the 1st time in Europe, with the support of TA's from UMinho during the lab classes. These lab classes will use computing resources at TACC, namely the world largest computer cluster open to the scientific community, Stampede, and in the top 10 in the TOP500 list.
