SCAI offers several training opportunities focused on a variety of topics to support Italian and worldwide computational scientists in their research activity.
With its long-lasting training tradition, the Cineca HPC Department is now also one of the 6 PRACE PATCs (PRACE Advanced Training Centres) that enable the European research community to utilise the computational infrastructure available. Therefore our training offer includes several events sponsored by the European Project PRACE-2IP, they are labelled as PATC events.
In some 40 years of activity, Cineca gained a wide expertise of the most advanced tools for the utilization at best of the supercomputing systems.
This knowledge is available to our users by mean of a large offer of consultancy services and specialized training paths. A huge number of training events are organized every year to enable our users in the usage and exploitation of the available technologies and architectures.
The experience and expertise of our technical staff allow us also to respond to special training requests, adapting the structure and the contents of the courses or schools to the users' need.
We also collaborate continuously with some vendors in exploring and testing new technologies for HPC (NVIDIA GPU, Intel MIC).
Our vocation on sharing knowledge in the field of High Performance Computing is especially realized by the Summer and Advanced Schools (on Parallel Computing, on Computer Graphics..) which aims are to allow researchers to exploit at best the most advances computing tools and systems in their scientific activity.
