Third Summer School
five days of cutting-edge training on core skills for HPC,data science and data analytics
Our Summer School provides a unique opportunity to attend state-of-the-art training delivered by world-leading academics and industry partners from around the globe, practising hands-on exercises lead by renowned experts, and networking with your peers in an invaluable forum for knowledge exchange.
The workshop targets practitioners from industry, government, or research organisations with
some basic training in quantitative analysis and computer programming
are particularly welcome. Aditional participants will be advanced
undergraduate and postgraduate students from any field requiring the
fundamentals of data science to work with typically large datasets and
Artificial intelligence and data science are fast-growing areas of science which stand to have a major impact on the industrial future through applying AI to the vast amounts of data generated by scientific research.
It is becoming easier and easier to collect large amounts of data across a broad range of research areas, and there is a growing need to understand how this can best be exploited to make new discoveries. However, we know it is not sufficient to just collect data, the crucial step is in how to incorporate the domain knowledge that already exists into the computational methods used.
The Summer School aims to provide relevant training in these new AI methodologies, in a way that is acceptable and meaningful to researchers from the bio/health disciplines.
The aim of the Summer School is to introduce the cornerstone of programming tools and techniques used for efficient parallel applications with special emphasis to High Performance Computing for students and professionals, among the fields of engineering and science, with basic and intermediate programming skills. This will allow them to advance their careers by harnessing the computational power of HPC to tackle large scale problems in their respective fields.
Following from the school initiative, the event intends to accomplish the creation of collaborative interdisciplinary groups and the education of the next generation of highly specialized programmers. Ultimately, procuring innovative and efficient algorithms to optimally process all kinds of workflows.

2nd HPC Summer School
3-day Workshop of seminars + 1 “challenge” day in which the participants will develop the necessary basic skills to program in HPC environments (high performance computing)..
1st Summer School
The school uses a hands-on approach, in which the participants will learn by developing parallel applications, presenting them with the opportunity for constructive cooperation with programmers from abroad as well as other fields of interest, under the guidance of worldwide recognized experts in the field.
Diálogo industria Academia sobre Economía y Big data
La bioeconomia y las industrias emergentes como motores de desarrollo económico de nuestro país aprovechando la riqueza de biodiversidad y bioproductos.
HPC UD’17 Workshop
La serie de talleres sobre programación paralela y de alto desempeño, ofrecidos por la universidad Distrital Francisco José de Caldas tienen como objetivo proporcionar una introducción completa y práctica a técnicas y tecnologías de programación y optimización en computación paralela basadas en estándares y marcos abiertos con el fin de utilizar totalmente las capacidades de escalamiento de los sistemas de este tipo. Han sido concebidos con un enfoque muy práctico para la participación activa de los asistentes.
The Secret of Success
Alejandro Montaña, Msc Student
I consider this School taught me so much, up to the point I am still using and checking things I learned at that moment for my job. I am quite grateful to the people who collaborate for this event to happen.
Jack Marquez, PhD Student
Attending the first HPC Summer School was helpful because I could get a lot of information about different technologies present in HPC. Also, I was able to get in touch with some people who have worked on this topic for so many years and get some of the knowledge they have about it. This summer school was very exciting because I got a relation with some parallel computing technologies as openACC, also with the trend of containers doing some experiments with Docker and Singularity.
