Contact Details for more information:

The academy is designed to foster a national community of researchers and provides a basic training in HPC methods to students just beginning their Ph.D. or other research degree, though we also welcome more mature researchers from any relevant background. The course will cover Basic HPC tools, Programming, Performance Programming, Parallel Architectures, Shared Memory Parallelism, Message Passing Parallelism and Practical Parallel Programming.

It is our continuing aim to provide the best and most relevant training to new researchers and so this year we have a slightly redesigned structure which offers practical sessions focussing on three alternative themes: Computational Fluid Dynamics, Atomistic and Molecular Modelling and Machine Learning.
Please see the programme for more information.

The Academy has a teaching staff of nine senior academics who bring a wealth of experience and expertise to the courses and reflect the breadth of scientific research using HPC as an everyday tool. Please see the course leaders page for more details.
