RIKEN International HPC Summer School FY2018

RIKEN Center for Computational Science (R-CCS) will be holding a summer school to give early career researchers in computational science an opportunity to learn programming techniques for parallel computers, aiming to foster scientists who will lead the field on the international stage in the future. Scientists from R-CCS will provide lectures and the K computer will be used for hands-on training. This program will be provided in English.

7. Application for participation

  • Maximum number of participants: About 20. Applications will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. However, necessary adjustment may be made to avoid having a large number of participants from one university or institution. We may also decline applicants who do not meet the requirements listed in 5 above.
  • Application period: 9 am, April 2 to 5 pm, May 16, 2018.
    *****Thank you for your interest in our program. Due to an overwhelming response, all available slots have been filled, and the application submission has been closed.*****
  • To apply for the summer school, click here (online application form)
  • After the application period ends, the summer school secretariat will notify all the applicants whether they are accepted for the program, and inform them regarding documents to submit.
  • In principle, participants must attend all sessions of the summer school. For partial participation, please consult with the R-CCS Planning Office.
  • RIKEN will bear travel and accommodation expenses to full-time students who will participate in all sessions (part-time students with full-time jobs are excluded). Travel and accommodation expenses will also be paid for participants in the CEA-RIKEN HPC School program.
