2016 Guest Student Programme on Scientific Computing

Jülich Supercomputing Centre

In order to give students the opportunity to familiarize themselves with various aspects of scientific computing as early as possible, the Juelich Supercomputing Centre (JSC) is once again organizing a programme for guest students in the 2016 summer vacation. The programme is supported by CECAM - Centre Europeen de Calcul Atomique and IBM.

It targets students of science and engineering, computer science and
mathematics who have already completed their first degree but have
not yet finished their master's course.

The students will work together with local scientists on topics of
current interest in research and development. Depending on their
previous experience and interests, they will be involved in various
fields of work, for example:

Computational Science, Applied Mathematics
* Modelling and simulation in physics, chemistry and biophysics
* Techniques of parallel MD simulation
* Modelling, simulation and data analysis in neuroscience
* Parallel computational procedures in quantum chemistry and
structural mechanics
* Performance evaluation of parallel algorithms in linear algebra
* Mathematical modelling, statistics and data mining

Computer Architectures, Distributed Computing
* Distributed computing, uniform and secure access to IT resources
* Cluster operating systems & network management
* High-speed data networks & data management

High-Performance Computing, Visualization
* Performance analysis and optimization of parallel programs
* Programming of hierarchical parallel computer systems
* Distributed applications, interactive control and visualization
* Virtual reality techniques for visualizing scientific data

The programme will run for ten weeks from 1 August to 7 October 2016.
During this period JSC grants access to its supercomputers, including
the JUQUEEN and JURECA installation. The participants should be
familiar with the computational branch of their subject. In addition,
practical experience including at least a good knowledge of programming
with C, C++, Python or Fortran on Linux systems should be present.

Application deadline: 31 March 2016
