This school is ”fully online".

RIKEN Center for Computational Science (R-CCS) will hold a summer school in September 2024.
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 Wisteria/BDEC-01 Odyssey (Wisteria-O/The University of Tokyo) which is Fugaku compatible system will be used for hands-on training.
This program will be provided in English.

The program consists of 5-days. First 4 days are focusing on parallel Finite Element Method (FEM). FEM is widely used for solving various types of applications in science and engineering. This part includes fundamental issues related to FEM, parallel programming using MPI, OpenMP and numerical libraries, such as PETSc. Participants will gain knowledge and insights into scientific computing through hands-on sessions using Wisteria/BDEC-01 Odyssey (Wisteria-O).

On the final day, we will deepen your understanding of numerical libraries by practicing PETSc applications in the morning. We will have a hands-on lecture on Deep Neural Networks in the afternoon, demonstrating a simple image categorization and bridge to the higher-level AI frameworks and toolkits.

Date Sep 2-4, 9, 10, 2024, for 5 days
