The Swiss National Supercomputing Centre (ETH Zurich / CSCS) and Università della Svizzera italiana (USI) are pleased to announce this year’s Summer University on Effective High-Performance Computing and Data Analytics, which will be composed of two sections – online from July 11 to 21, 2022, and on-site from July 23 to 25, 2022.

This summer school will focus on the effective exploitation of state-of-the-art hybrid High-Performance Computing (HPC) systems with a special focus on Data Analytics. The content of the course is tailored for intermediate graduate students (3rd year Bachelor's students, Master’s students, and Ph.D students) interested in both learning parallel programming models, and having hands-on experience using HPC systems. Starting from an introductory explanation of the available systems at CSCS, the course will progress to more applied topics such as parallel programming on accelerators, code optimization, scientific libraries, and deep learning software frameworks.

The following topics will be covered:

  • GPU and ARM architectures
  • GPU programming (CUDA and OpenACC)
  • Performance optimization and scientific libraries (Kokkos)
  • Interactive supercomputing (JupyterLab)
  • Python HPC libraries (Numpy/SciPy/Dask/Numba)
  • Introduction to Machine Learning and GPU optimized frameworks (Rapids)
  • Deep Learning on HPC platforms

Lectures will be held by ETH Zurich / CSCS, USI, UNIL and NVIDIA.
