Current Topics in EuroHPC Training

May 15 @ 11:10

Join EuroCC@GCS for this Birds of a Feather session organized by CASTIEL2 and the EuroCC2 project at ISC High-Performance 2024!

Representing a significant share of the Education & Training community in Europe, this BoF aims at providing a user forum to discuss new emerging trends in contemporary HPC training across Europe. Focused on, but not limited to, specific goals of the EuroCC2/CASTIEL2 projects and their efforts in HPC training, a selected list of key subjects is summarized as follows: • Training Baseline Orthogonal to similar efforts currently ongoing in Europe, the training baseline seeks to specify a set of HPC training courses particularly suited to customize industrial user profiles. Characteristics are modular components, community-derived content, variability in all its building blocks, associated certification scheme (e.g. micro-credentials) and in general a co-design effort of European scale. • Assuring the Quality of Online Training Programs The quality assurance of training programs needs to be considered from the first step, to ensure that the needs of the intended audience are correctly identified, their learning needs are met and that they are fully engaged from the start. We will look at ways that this can be achieved to maximise user engagement to ensure that the intended learning is understood and retained. • Quantum Computing in Training: current situation & success stories The training program on quantum computing has been initialized in academia and industry seeking to balance the frontiers of research and individual studies. Based on past training events, we seek to have collaborative efforts between academia, industry, and research institutions, in order to foster knowledge exchange and trigger new initiatives.
