School Mission

Taking advantage of the Internet and high speed networks available today, one can exploit high performance computing infrastructures from anywhere, even located in the middle of the nature.

Inspired by this idea SC-Camp is an initiative of researchers to offer to undergraduate and master students state-of-the-art lectures and programming practical sessions upon High Performance and Distributed Computing topics. SC-Camp is a non-profit event, addressed to every student including those that lack of financial backup. Last year all students that applyied in due time received a grant to attend lectures, including meals and accomadations. This year the event will be hosted by Universidad de Los Andes, Mérida Venezuela.


The summer school focus on the following topics:

SC-Camp 2012

SC-Camp 2012 is a 7 days summer school, starting on July the 8th of 2012, composed by 6 days of scientific sessions, 1 leisure day with an organized activity (for example, hiking or rafting). During the activities there will be held a parallel programming contest.

We welcome applications of undergraduate (preferable at last year) or master students from all areas of engineering and science with strong interest upon High Performance and Distributed Computing. Due to the advanced content of lectures some basic notions of Parallel and Distributed Computing along with programming skills are desired. All courses and lectures will be held in English, thus a good knowledge of English language -both oral and written- is mandatory. The scientific and steering committee will evaluate the application forms based on the applicant's scientific background and their motivation letter. This year, as last year, we expect to accept between 30 and 40 students. The registration fee which includes accommodation and access to all scientific lectures is $ 150,00 USD (US dollars).
