The 2022 ACM Europe Summer School on “HPC Computer Architectures for AI and Dedicated Applications” was hosted by the Barcelona Supercomputing Center, RISC2’s coordinator, and the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya. The event took place between August 29 and September 2.
The RISC2 project supported the participation of five Latin American students, boosting the exchange of experience and knowledge between Europe and Latin America on the HPC fields. After the Summer School, the students whose participation supported by RISC2 wrote on a blog post: “We have brought home a new vision of the world of computing, new contacts, and many new perspectives that we can apply in our studies and share with our colleagues in the research groups and, perhaps, start a new foci of study”.
Distinguished scientists in the HPC field gave lectures and tutorials addressing architecture, software stack and applications for HPC and AI, invited talks, a panel on The Future of HPC and a final keynote by Prof Mateo Valero. On the last day of the week, the ACM School merged with MATEO2022 (“Multicore Architectures and Their Effective Operation 2022”), attended by world-class experts in computer architecture in the HPC field.
The ACM Europe Summer School joined 50 participants, from 28 different countries, from young computer science researchers and engineers, outstanding MSC students, and senior undergraduate students.
