2010 Guest Student Programme on Scientific Computing

Where: Juelich Supercomputing Centre (JSC), Forschungszentrum Juelich
When: 2 August to 8 October 2010

In order to give students the opportunity to familiarize themselves with
various aspects of scientific computing as early as possible, the Juelich
Supercomputing Centre (JSC) is once again organizing a programme for
guest students in the 2010 summer vacation. The programme targets
students of science and engineering, informatics and mathematics who
have already completed their first degree but have not yet finished
their master’s course.

The students will work together with scientists from JSC on topics of
current interest in research and development. Depending on their
previous experience and interests, they will be involved in various
fields of work, for example:

Computational Science, Applied Mathematics
Modelling and simulation in physics, chemistry and biophysics
Techniques of parallel molecular dynamics simulation
Efficient methods for long-range interactions
Parallel computational procedures in quantum chemistry and
structural mechanics
Performance evaluation of parallel algorithms in linear algebra
Mathematical modelling and statistics, data mining

High-Performance Computing, Visualisation
Performance analysis and optimization of parallel programs
Programming of hierarchical parallel computer systems
Distributed applications, interactive control and visualisation
Virtual reality techniques for visualising scientific data

Computer Architectures, Grid Computing
Grid computing, uniform and secure access to IT resources
Cluster operating systems
Interconnection networks in clusters
Data management
High-speed data networks
Network management

The programme will run for ten weeks from 2 August to 8 October 2010.
The students will be able to use the supercomputers at JSC, including
JUGENE – currently the fastest computer in Europe. They should naturally
be familiar with computer-oriented areas of their subjects. In addition,
they should also have practical computer experience including at least a
good knowledge of programming with C, C++ or Fortran on Unix systems.

Applications should be made in writing by *30 April 2010*. They should

– CV with photograph
– Certificates of bachelor’s degree or equivalent
– School-leaving certificate
– Proof of student status (summer semester 2010)
– Level of knowledge in the above-mentioned disciplines
– Special interest in a particular field of work and motivation letter
– Detailed recommendation by a university lecturer
