Summary on Grant Application Form
This is a proposal for a programme of short courses designed to provide an advanced training programme for High Performance Computing (HPC) that is both rigorous and wide ranging. The programme is designed as a partnership with PhD supervisors, freeing the supervisor to focus on the more discipline-specific aspects of their student's training. We will provide three types of activity: (1) an annual 2-week residential course (Autumn Academy) designed to allow students to start working with HPC code right from the start of their PhD; (2) A rolling 2-year programme of short residential courses on more specialised topics and that builds from the base provided by the Autumn Academy; and (3) a programme of half- or one-day events, using Access Grid technology where possible, designed to broaden the student's background in HPC related issues while also helping them to form networks with their peers. The proposed training programme is built firmly on the very considerable experience of the applicants and their 13 institutions in HPC training.
