The “HPC and Data Science Summer Institute”:Home is a week-long workshop held at the University of California, San Diego focusing on a broad spectrum of introductory-to-intermediate topics in High Performance Computing and Data Science. The program is aimed at researchers in academia and industry, especially in domains not traditionally engaged in supercomputing, who have problems that cannot typically be solved using local computing resources.

Changing structure of the Summer Institute - Two Institutes in One
This year, the Summer Institute will follow a different structure in response to the needs of our diverse user base and the increasingly diverse suite of resources and services that they need to utilize (often referred to as cyberinfrastructure). We recognize that while many researchers still need to write and parallelize their own software, a significant number of users of our supercomputers are not parallel/HPC/CI programmers (“non-programmers”). Rather, they use existing, robust third-party applications to solve problems in fields as diverse as phylogenetics, genomics, molecular biology, computational chemistry, material science, climate simulation and others. Nonetheless, these non-programmers still need to acquire specialized skills in order to effectively use advanced cyberinfrastructure.
