PDC Summer School 2024

KTH, Stockholm, Sweden

The PDC Center for High Performance Computing (PDC) and the KTH School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) welcome you to the “Introduction to High Performance Computing” summer school. This school is part of the Swedish e-Science Education (SeSE) programme and is supported by the Swedish e-Science Research Centre (SeRC).‚Äč

The school focuses on the skills needed to utilise high-performance computing (HPC) resources for research. It consists of lectures and guided hands-on lab exercises using the Dardel HPC system at PDC. The school includes an introduction to parallel algorithms, parallel programming, modern HPC architectures, performance analysis and engineering, and software engineering. Case studies in various scientific disciplines will be used to help illustrate practical research applications of the topics.

As the PDC summer school focuses on programming and optimizing scientific codes for AMD CPUs and GPUs, as featured on the LUMI supercomputer (and on the Dardel supercomputer at KTH), this summer school is a very good choice for those Ph.D. students and researchers who will use LUMI in their research.


16 August 2024: a preliminary online introduction to Dardel from 09.00-11.00
19-24 August 2024: in person at KTH in Stockholm


KTH Royal Institute of Technology main campus, Stockholm, Sweden

Who can attend

Ph.D. students and researchers in scientific and/or high-performance computing (with academic or industrial/commercial backgrounds) from anywhere in the world are welcome to apply to attend the school.

What you will learn

This school provides the knowledge and skills needed to utilize high-performance computing (HPC) resources for research purposes. Information about the topics that are covered in the school can be found in these detailed descriptions. The school is especially suited to computational and data scientists, and a variety of relevant HPC use cases will be studied to help illustrate the topics. The school consists of both lectures and guided hands-on lab sessions.
