For ACENET training workshops, please see Workshops & Seminars.
AARMS (the Atlantic Association for Research in the Mathematical Sciences), the AARMS Collaborative Research Group in Numerical Analysis and Scientific Computing, the Centre for Numerical Analysis and Scientific Computing at Memorial University of Newfoundland, and the Department of Mathematics and Computing Science at Saint Mary’s University will bring students and researchers interested in scientific computing to a 5-day workshop in beautiful St. John’s, NL, Canada.
The meeting will consist of two independent workshops, a 2-day Software Carpentry workshop, presented by ACENET Research Consultants on May 27-28, 2017, and a 3-day Portable, Extensible Toolkit for Scientific Computation (PETSc) tutorial, led by Prof. Jed Brown of CU-Boulder, on May 29-31, 2017. Jed Brown will also be available for consultation on the use of PETSc on Thursday, June 1st, and Friday, June 2nd. A reception for both the PETSc and Software Carpentry participants will be held on the evening of Monday, May 29th.
Registration fees will be as follows:
For students/postdocs participating in the entire program, $150
For students/postdocs participating in only the Software Carpentry workshop, $100
For students/postdocs participating in only the PETSc workshop, $120
For faculty/non-university participants for the entire program, $300
All fees include HST. Registration includes two coffee breaks per day during the workshop days, as well as participation in the workshop reception.
Partial travel and local support is available for student and early career participants. To apply for support, email firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are receiving travel support, you are still responsible for making all of your own bookings for travel, accommodations, and registration for the workshop and paying for your expenses during the workshop. Reimbursements will be made after the workshop, and only with a properly completed travel claim form.
Accommodations are available on the Memorial campus, book here.
Topics will include general parallel computing, OpenMP, GPGPU, and Message Passing Interface (MPI). The mornings will consist of lectures, with the afternoons following a lab format, where participants will be given exercises, or can bring specific problems to instructors related to their research.
Participants attending the school must have familiarity with the Unix command line, and some level of programming experience. Participating in the ACENET Basics Series would be a great foundation for the school. Laptop required.
Lunches will be provided. A limited number of residence rooms are being held until May 27th at the University of Kings College. To reserve a room, click here. Note that participants are responsible for making their own room arrangements as well as for the associated costs.
The Digital Humanities Summer Institute provides an ideal environment for discussing and learning about new computing technologies and how they are influencing teaching, research, dissemination, creation, and preservation in different disciplines, via a community-based approach.
A time of intensive coursework, seminars, and lectures, participants at DHSI share ideas and methods, and develop expertise in using advanced technologies. Every summer, the institute brings together faculty, staff, and students from the Arts, Humanities, Library, and Archives communities as well as independent scholars and participants from areas beyond.

HPCS (the High Performance Computing Symposium) is Canada’s premiere Advanced Research Computing (ARC) conference, bringing together top researchers from across Canada and around the world, as well as major industry partners.
This year’s conference is being held in Kingston, Ontario – June 5th – 9th, and will include a range of keynote sessions and technical workshops designed to appeal to the research community and ARC professionals. Topics will include “traditional” HPC disciplines, as well as emerging areas such as cognitive computing – and we’ll have sessions exploring future technologies.
You’ll also have the opportunity to explore the stunning and historic City of Kingston – Canada’s first capital. With 2017 being Canada’s 150th anniversary, it’s sure to be special. You’ll get to enjoy Old Fort Henry, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, as well as tour the 1000 Islands aboard the Island Queen.
Please join us in Kingston for what we know will be a memorable HPCS! Visit us at 2017.hpcs.ca
