PDC offers courses, workshops and seminars to help you improve your high performance computing (HPC) skills - these are open to business/industry and academic researchers, as well as students, and most are free of charge.
PDC HPC summer school & HPC courses
The annual PDC Summer School gives attendees an understanding of how to develop software for various HPC systems, and provides practical experience developing and running HPC software. If you want to learn more about using HPC in specific research areas, there are also various university courses that are run at PDC.
If you need to run programs at PDC, you can attend one of our short "Introduction to PDC" courses. You can meet PDC staff and get assistance at the PDC Cafes. The PDC Pub is a chance to meet PDC staff and other researchers to discuss HPC topics of interest. PDC also hosts a variety of workshops & short courses for HPC researchers.
There are two main kinds of HPC research: research in other areas which uses HPC for simulations or analysis, and research on improving HPC systems and how we use them. Often these are combined in projects that test future HPC systems by using them to run applications. At times PDC has openings for this kind of research.
