We just completed another successful ISSCENS program in the UVACSE Department. ISSCENS, or Intensive Summer School for Computing in the Environmental Sciences teaches software engineering concepts to environmental science students from universities all over the country. Taught by members of the UVACSE staff, the 2 and 1/2 week summer school covers basic programming and software engineering, advanced visualization and complied languages, and included high performance computing such as serial optimization, high-throughput computing, MPI and OpenMP. In addition, selected students begin an 8 week internship at various NASA research centers nationwide immediately following the summer school intensive. This program enables students to work with advanced models used within environmental sciences, while encouraging durable and valuable connections among mentors and students.
In November of 2014, UVACSE will represent the Commonwealth of Virginia with Virginia Tech in New Orleans for the 2014 Supercomputing Conference. Spotlighting the most original and fascinating scientific and technical applications from around the world, SC14 will once again bring together the HPC community – an unprecedented array of scientists, engineers, researchers, educators, students, programmers, system administrators, and developers – for an exceptional program of technical papers, tutorials, timely research posters, and Birds-of-a-Feather (BOF) sessions.
The SC14 Exhibition Hall will feature exhibits of the latest and greatest technologies from industry, academia and government research organizations; many of these technologies will be seen for the first time in New Orleans. UVACSE will join the national supercomputing community in November to share our collective accomplishments and to engage in important conversations of how we make HPC Matter to our lives, our future, our communities and our world.
