Building on last year’s successful experience and in order to support an extended audience of students in their learning process, the Swiss National Supercomputing Centre (ETH Zurich / CSCS) and Università della Svizzera italiana (USI) have decided to hold the annual Summer School as an online course again this year. The school will be held from July 19 to 30, 2021

The program will focus on the effective exploitation of state-of-the-art hybrid High-Performance Computing (HPC) systems with a special focus on Data Analytics.  Deadline for applications: April 25, 2021.

The content of the course is tailored for 3rd year Bachelor’s students, Master’s students, Ph.D students, and early stage Postdocs interested in learning parallel programming models and having hands-on experience using HPC systems. Additional information on the Summer School 2021 program, course structure, examination methodology and application can be found at the following link >

The Advanced Computing Laboratory at the Università della Svizzera italiana (USI) and the Swiss National Supercomputing Center (CSCS) hosted their annual Summer School online this year due to COVID-19 restrictions, but attendance tripled thanks to the remote accessibility of the program. A total of 100 student, including 15 USI master students and 20 ETH master students, and working professionals logged on for the two-week series of lectures and “hands-on” labs to learn about CPU/GPU hybrid high-performance computing (HPC) systems with a special focus on data analytics.
