PRACE opened applications for Summer of HPC on 20 February 2015.

About the PRACE Summer of HPC
Summer of HPC is a PRACE programme that offers summer placements at HPC centres across Europe to late stage undergraduates and early stage postgraduate students. Up to 20 top applicants from across Europe will be selected to participate. Participants will spend two months working on projects related to PRACE scientific or industrial work and ideally produce a visualisation or video of their results.
At the end of the programme, two best participants will be awarded for their contribution – there are awards for Best Visualisation and for HPC Ambassador.
The programme will run from 1 July to 31 August 2015. Flights, accommodation and a stipend will be provided to all successful applicants; all participants need to bring is an interest in computing and some enthusiasm!
Participating in the PRACE Summer of HPC
Applications are welcome from all disciplines. Previous experience in HPC is not required, some coding knowledge is a prerequisite but the most important attribute is a desire to learn, and share, more about HPC. Application available through the Application Page.
