What is a good curriculum in HPC? Join our seminar 25 – 26 August 2022 in Copenhagen

Contemporary competences in High Performance Computing are crucial for industry and research.

At the same time, methods, accessible infrastructure, and other rapid developments are opening new opportunities at an increasing rate. The universities must produce relevant candidates and we need to introduce the students to the best possible, most relevant, and updated curriculum. Make you opinion and experience count -participate and help define the best curriculum.

Your benefits from participating:

  • Get updated on state-of-the-art teaching curriculum
  • Listen to inspiring key note speakers from University and Industry
  • Share results and cases from our surveys in training and competences in HPC
  • Exchange knowledge and experience in course material and teaching in HPC with Danish and European colleagues
  • Enjoy a nice dinner.

At the seminar keynote speaker Professor Pedro Trancoso will give an inspiring talk.

Pedro Trancoso is a Professor at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering of the Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden. He is also the director of the Masters programme on High-Performance Computer systems (MPHPC) at Chalmers since its start in 2019. He has an engineering degree from Technical University of Lisbon, Portugal (1993) and a MSc and PhD (1998) from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, U.S.A. His research interests are in computer architecture (memory hierarchy, multicore processors, reconfigurable computing, and energy efficiency) with main focus on the hardware acceleration for emerging applications such as machine learning. He is currently actively collaborating in four EU research projects (VEDLIoT, eProcessor, and EPI SGA2), two Swedish research projects (PRIDE and QuantumStack) and one EU Masters project (EUMaster4HPC). 


We invite Danish HPC researchers and other teaching specialists from Danish Universities and European colleagues as well as representatives from the industry. There is room for 30 persons in total.
