EPPC HPC Summer School

At the bottom, a row of supercomputers.The EPCC will run a High-Performance Computing (HPC) Summer School, which will take place over 5 weeks in Edinburgh, Scotland. The programme, which will take place between 25 June and 29 July, aims to allow undergraduate students at UK universities to learn and practice HPC technologies.

Transportation from within the UK, accommodation, and subsistence allowance will be provided. The application deadline is 30 April 2023 (23:59 BST).

The HPC Summer School will offer a gentle introduction through software carpentry, then progress towards more advanced concepts including shared memory, distributed memory parallelism and GPU offloading to name a few.

Only a small number of students (approximately 10-12) will be selected. This is to enhance collaboration, networking and social opportunities.

This summer school is articulated around three phases:


For the first week and a half, in collaboration with EPCC’s training for ARCHER2 (the UK’s national supercomputer), students will be taught how to leverage the capabilities of supercomputers.


A two-day hackathon will take place, allowing students to form teams and practice the new techniques learned by taking an idea off the ground in a fast-paced collaborative environment.


During the last three weeks, teams can turn hackathon ideas (or new ideas) into an actual project through a more thorough software development cycle under the supervision of experienced HPC practitioners.

For more details, including details about the application process, please visit the dedicated webpage at https://www.epcc.ed.ac.uk/hpc-summer-school.
