PRACE Summer of HPC Students at JSC

The Summer of HPC (SoHPC) programme, now in its seventh year, allows 25 university students from all scientific disciplines to spend eight weeks studying at a PRACE partner organization. In addition to allowing students to work on research projects in a multidisciplinary and international environment, the aim of the SoHPC programme is to promote and disseminate scientific culture among the upcoming generation of researchers, making sure that students participating in the project will be the computational scientists of tomorrow. Furthermore, through the participants’ sharing of their experiences in blog posts and video presentations, the programme aims to ensure that the students themselves become ambassadors for supercomputing at their respective institutions.

This year, Andreas Nikolaidis (Cyprus) and Noé Brucy (France) joined JSC for the summer to gain first-hand experience in day-to-day research. After a training week for all 25 students in Italy hosted by CINECA, Andreas and Noé started work on their summer projects at JSC. Noé was supervised by Laura Morgenstern and worked on an optimized tasking framework for fast multipole methods on GPUs, while Andreas’ project on lattice quantum chromodynamics was supervised by Stefan Krieg.
