Summer School on Advanced Programming Techniques for the Earth System Science


L'Aquila, Italy, 28 August - 2 September 2016

The summer school is aimed at improving personal skills for the effective exploitation of increasingly available computer power, from personal workstations up to High Performance Computing (HPC) resources, in the field of Earth System Science. Lessons and practical sessions are intended to make it more familiar the use of parallel computing, in order to allow optimal use of numerical models and  encourage their development and personalisation with new features, which is often limited by technical difficulties. Moreover,  the school will provide the tools for proper sharing and integration with the scientific community, for a better diffusion and impact of your work.

Some basic information:

  • The school is aimed at improving personal skills for the effective exploitation of increasingly available computer power, from personal workstations up to High Performance Computing (HPC) resources.
  • open to all kinds of academic and non-academic research profiles
  • suitable for a wide range of applications, from simple modules to comprehensive Earth System models
  • Participants with different levels of programming skills (from beginner to expert) in Earth Science modelling may benefit from the school
