Introduction to Scientific and Technical Computing in C [Italian]

September 23 - September 25
CINECA (Rome), Via dei Tizii 6
Rome, Italy
+ Google Map

Description: This course illustrates the key features of C language, with emphasis to modern programming style for scientific and technical applications particularly suitable to HPC environments. After a brief introduction on the C fundamentals we will discuss its flaws and strengths and the conceptual guidelines that allowed C to be one of the most widespread, efficient and general purpose languages even decades after its birth. We will show common idioms and best practices focusing on scientific and technical use cases.…

Introduction to Fortran for Scientific Computing [Italian]

September 30 - October 3
CINECA (Milan), Via R. Sanzio 4
Segrate (Milano) , 20090 Italy
+ Google Map

Description: Fortran is among the earliest high level programming languages and the first one to be standardized. The specific features of the language and a widespread experience acquired in coding allow Fortran compilers to build highly optimized executables. The major revisions of the standard (77/90/2003) give the chance to improve more and more the code design, and this, along with the large number of mathematical functions included and an extensive collections of highly tuned scientific packages, make Fortran a good…

Open NEST Developer Video Conference

September 30 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm
Videoconference

Dear NEST Community! We are very excited about the growing activity on the NEST user mailing list and the NEST Github repository.  It is great to see that more and more people outside the research groups that have developed NEST for a long time are now contributing to NEST development. To provide everyone interested in the development of NEST with a better opportunity to engage with other developers, we will host open NEST developer video conferences every second Monday from…

Introduction to Python programming [Italian]

October 1 - October 3
CINECA (Rome), Via dei Tizii 6
Rome, Italy
+ Google Map

Description: Python is an extremely versatile language and its use is growing more and more nowadays. Despite simplicity and readability are among significant Python strengths, writing a good quality Python code requires some degree of preparation. This course aims to introduce the student to the key topics of the language in order to give a solid basis for further investigations that will be required according to the specific field of application. The exposition of the topics uses several examples and…

Introduction to Python [German]

October 7 @ 8:30 am - October 9 @ 4:30 pm
Jülich Supercomputing Centre, Wilhelm-Johnen-Straße
Jülich, 52428 Germany
+ Google Map

Inhalt Python ist eine Programmiersprache, die prozedurale, objektorientierte und funktionale Programmierung unterstützt. Sie wurde mit dem Ziel entwickelt, möglichst einfach und übersichtlich zu sein und schnelles Programmieren zu ermöglichen. Python benutzt dynamische Typisierung und automatische Speicherverwaltung und wird standardmäßig in einem Interpreter ausgeführt, ähnlich wie Perl, Ruby, Scheme, Smalltalk und Tcl. Durch die einfache Kernsyntax, den sehr mächtigen Funktionsumfang und die eingebauten Datentypen eignet Python sich sowohl für kurze Scripte wie auch für umfangreiche Programme. Zahlreiche Erweiterungsmodule bieten Möglichkeiten der…

Porting code from Matlab to Python

October 7 @ 9:00 am - October 8 @ 4:30 pm
Jülich Supercomputing Centre, Wilhelm-Johnen-Straße
Jülich, 52428 Germany
+ Google Map

Description Python is becoming a popular language for scientific applications and is increasingly used for high performance computing. In this course we want to introduce Matlab programmers to the usage of Python. Matlab and Python have a comparable language philosophy, but Python can offer better performance using its optimizations and parallelization interfaces. Python also increases the portability and flexibility (interaction with other open source and proprietary software packages) of solutions, and can be run on supercomputing resources without high licensing…

High Performance Molecular Dynamics [Italian]

October 14 - October 16
CINECA (Rome), Via dei Tizii 6
Rome, Italy
+ Google Map

Description: This course is designed for those users who wish run classical molecular dynamics programs such as GROMACS and NAMD on modern supercomputers. By understanding better the HPC infrastructures and the algorithms used to exploit them, the aim is to give researchers the tools to run simulations in the most efficient way possible on current and future supercomputers. The course will consist of presentations and practical sessions where students will be able to prepare and run examples of popular programs…

Debugging and Optimization of Scientific Applications

October 21 - October 23
CINECA (Bologna), Via Magnanelli 6/3
Casalecchio di Reno (Bologna), 40033 Italy
+ Google Map

Description: The tipical approach to the art of programming from the point of view of a scientist only rarely permits to reach good results in terms of computational performances. The basic knowledge about how a computer machine really works permits even to a naive programmer to better write his own code and eventually to optimize properly any kind of scientific program. This knowledge is way more important in the field of High-Performance Computing where the correct exploitation of the modern…
