PRACE "Summer of HPC" 2018

JSC participated in the PRACE "Summer of HPC" for the fifth time. The programme offers summer placements for undergraduate and postgraduate students at HPC centres across Europe. Twenty-three candidates were selected from a pool of highly skilled and motivated applicants from all across Europe. The successful students then participated in ongoing research projects at ten different HPC centres within the timeframe from 1 July to 31 August 2018. Travel and accommodation costs as well as a bursary were provided by PRACE to all successful applicants.

This year, Janni Harju (UK) and Wojciech Nawrocki (UK) joined JSC for the summer to gain first-hand experience in day-to-day research. After a training week for all 23 students in Edinburgh hosted by EPCC, Janni and Wojciech started their summer projects at JSC. Wojciech was supervised by Andreas Beckmann working on a generic tasking framework for fast multipole methods on GPUs, while Janni was supervised by Stefan Krieg working on lattice quantum chromodynamics.
