SHARCNET Summer School 2020
The SHARCNET Summer School on Advanced Research Computing (ARC) is an annual educational event for graduate/undergraduate students, postdocs and researchers who are engaged in compute-intensive research. These schools are FREE and provide beginner-to-intermediate level courses on a wide range of subjects, from traditional high performance computing to data science, machine learning, and popular languages (Python, Julia etc.); they also include domain-specific courses.
In past years, this event was run in person (5 days, three parallel streams) on one of SHARCNET campuses, but this year it will be run entirely online, due to COVID-19 pandemic. It will start on May 19 as a single stream event and will last
until mid-June. The courses are between 1 and 3 days long, and consist of live Zoom lecturing sessions interleaved with live Zoom hands-on sessions. The classes start at 9:00am EDT, and end at 5:00pm EDT (with multiple breaks).
Preparing for Summer School
- To take a full advantage of the courses, you will need a computer (PC or laptop), and reasonably good internet connection (ideally, 10 mbit/s or better).
- You will also need a headset with (optionally) a microphone. Please test the headset before the school.
- We will be using Zoom for both lecturing and hands on exercises. Zoom can be used from a browser, but it usually works better when installed as an app. Please create a Zoom account and test Zoom app before the summer school.
