The Distributed European Infrastructure for Supercomputing Applications (DEISA) and the US National Science Foundation's TeraGrid are jointly sponsoring HPC Challenges in Computational Sciences, October 4-7, in Acireale, Italy.
Applications are being accepted from graduate students and postdocs at US institutions through August 29. Awards will be announced by September 6. Successful applicants’ travel, lodging, and meals will be paid for by TeraGrid and DEISA.
Among the speakers lined up for the event are NSF's Barry Schneider, Axel Arnold from the University of Stuttgart in Germany, and Tony Drummond from the Livermore-Berkeley National Laboratory in California.
Mixed MPI/OpenMP programming, nanotechnology, and climate research are among the many HPC topics to be discussed.
