RIKEN International HPC Summer School 2020 - Toward Society 5.0 -

過去講義の様子

RIKEN Center for Computational Science (R-CCS) will be holding a summer school to give young 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 for the realization of Society 5.0. Scientists from R-CCS will provide lectures and Oakbridge-CX Supercomputer System (The University of Tokyo) 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 deadline: 5 pm, August 11, 2020.
  • 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 Computational Science Promotion 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. The expenses will be paid based on the RIKEN’s regulations via bank transfer after the school ends.
    (There will be no payment of expenses if the school is held online.)

Note: Handling of personal information
Personal information submitted will be used only for RIKEN to inform participants of the school schedule and changes or to collect materials related to the school operations. Personal information will not be used for other purposes.
