HPC Advanced Training Event (2021)

Date: Monday 13 – Tuesday 14 September 2021

Location: The Cyprus Institute, Online


This event will build on the knowledge and competences of the HPC IntermediateTraining Event, and teach more advanced aspects of HPC and will include GPU Programming, Data Analytics, Machine Learning, AI and Deep Learning.


Attendees should be familiar with at least one programming language, such as C/C++, Fortran, or Python. Hands on exercises are part of the training and will be provided in C, C++, and Python

Attendees should ideally have attended the EuroCC NCC HPC Beginner Training Event and HPC Intermediate Training Event. If not, interested attendees are advised to follow these events via the following links:
