The 10th Thematic CERN School of Computing (tCSC 2022) will take place on 1-7 May 2022. The programme will focus on Scientific Software for Heterogeneous Architectures, covering areas ranging from computer architectures to parallel and optimised software, and heterogeneous programming (CPU, GPU, HPC etc.). Academic programme :

Technologies and Platforms

  • Introduction to efficient computing
  • Hardware evolution and heterogeneity
  • Data-oriented design
  • Summary and future technologies overview

Parallel and Optimised Scientific Software

  • Writing parallel software
  • Modern programming languages for HEP
  • Optimizing existing large codebase
  • Practical vectorization

Programming for Heterogeneous Architectures

  • Scientific computing on heterogeneous architectures
  • Programming for GPUs
  • Performant programming for GPUs
  • Design patterns and best practices

Additional lectures

  • Preparing for the HL-LHC computational challenge
  • Student presentations session

Provided the health situation allows it, the school will be hosted at the Institut d’Études Scientifiques de Cargèse (IESC). The Institute is located on the west coast of the French island of Corsica, 50 km north of Ajaccio and its international airport. (However, if the pandemic situation doesn’t allow traveling or physical presence, the school will be moved to online format.)

The School is aimed at postgraduate students, engineers and scientists with a few years’ experience in particle physics, computing or related fields. We welcome applications from all nationalities and encourage everyone who is qualified to apply. Limited financial support may be available.
