TOP    Events & Outreach    Schools    RIKEN International HPC Summer School 2021 - Toward Society 5.0 -

This school is "fully online".

RIKEN Center for Computational Science (R-CCS) will hold an online summer school in September 2021. This program is designed to provide young researchers in computational science with an opportunity to learn programming techniques for parallel computers and to help them become leaders in the field in the age of Society 5.0. Scientists from R-CCS will provide lectures, and the supercomputer Fugaku will be used for hands-on training. This program will be provided in English.
