HPSC TerrSys Fall School 2017

The Centre for High-Performance Scientific Computing in Terrestrial Systems (Geoverbund ABC/J), together with the JSC SimLab Terrestrial Systems and supported by the Energy oriented Centre of Excellence for computing applications (EoCoE), is organizing the second international Fall School on Terrestrial Modelling and High-Performance Scientific Computing (HPSC) from 25 to 29 September 2017. The objective of this applied course is to provide the theoretical and technical context for terrestrial modelling in HPC environments utilizing stand-alone and coupled hydrologic, land surface, and atmospheric models. Using the Terrestrial Systems Modelling Platform (TerrSysMP), the course will take a comprehensive look at terrestrial modelling and HPSC in connection with real-world observations and data assimilation. Topics covered by condensed lectures and hands-on sessions will include model system setup, parallel performance and profiling, coupled models, big data strategies, and data assimilation. The course will be held at the University of Bonn with practical afternoon sessions on the JURECA HPC system. The school is intended for master's students and doctoral researchers, or postdocs with a keen interest in terrestrial modelling. The registration deadline is 15 May 2017.
