High Performance Computing International Summer Schools

Ramses van Zon

Author Ramses van Zon. This summer, I attended the annual International Summer School on Challenges in High Performance Computing (IHPCSS) in Ljubljana, Slovenia. I attended as part of the organizing committee, as well as the instructor of the “Python for HPC” session.  The IHPCSS was a great event, both because of the educational need it serves as well as the social and networking opportunities. About IHPCSS IHPCSS is organized by Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE), Partnershi ...

ENGAGE: Computing music to my ears

McMaster's LIVElabs demonstrates performance technology

Advanced computing is permeating all areas of research. This past week, I drove my eldest daughter, Nadia, to Western University to begin her first year at the Don Wright Faculty of Music.  It was a bittersweet trip.  While I'm thrilled she will be getting a post-secondary education, my "baby" is leaving home (Yes sweetheart, even when you turn 60, I will refer to you as my "baby").  Compute Ontario's board chair, Dr. Mark Daley, is the Associate Vice President of Research at Western University and I have ma ...
