The International HPC Summer School on Challenges in Computational Sciences is a series of events started in 2010 and taking place yearly. Initiated by NSF’s TeraGrid and EU’s DEISA project, the first school was organized in Italy in 2010, and was then continued by NSF’s XSEDE and EU’s PRACE projects with locations alternating between North America and Europe. Initially starting with a total of 60 graduate students and post-docs from Europe and the US, this number was increased to 70 students in 2013 when Japan joined in through RIKEN AICS and then further increased to 80 students in 2014 when Canada additionally joined through Compute Canada/Calcule Canada. Selection of students takes place after an open call typically published in December/January. Typically, a high diversity of science areas and more than 20 nationalities from four continents are represented.

The objective of the Summer School is to familiarize the best students of the respective continents or countries in computational sciences with a strong bond to supercomputing with all major state-of-the-art aspects related to HPC for a broad range of scientific disciplines, catalyze the formation of networks, provide mentoring through faculty members and supercomputing experts from renowned HPC centers, and to facilitate international exchange and open further carrier options.

This class is intended for selected students and staff to register to gain access to the relevant XSEDE compute resources to be able to fully participate in the summer school.
