Thematic School

The thematic CSC is a one-week school where new advanced or experimental programmes are taught.


The Thematic School welcomes newcomers and former participants interested in deepening their knowledge on state-of-the-art computing. As the Thematic School is very popular and there are a limited number of places, all applications go through a selection process.

The ideal students for the Thematic School are from either a computing or science background, with a strong interest in developing applications to solve particularly demanding and complex scientific computing problems.


While shorter and more focused than the main CSCs, the  tCSC maintains the same principles:

  • Academic dimension on advanced topics
  • Theory and practice
  • Networking and socialising

As with the other CSC schools, the scientific programme of the school is under the supervision of the CSC Advisory committee


It usually takes place around the end of May/early June.
