ExciTES Summer Institute 2011 Volunteering

Hello fellow volunteers!

We will be in need of volunteers all throughout the ExciTES Summer Institute sessions.
Get involved! Participate! Collaborate with Engineering students, professors, and professionals!

The schedule is the following:
June 6-10, July 18-22, July 25-29, and August 1-5 always from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. 
You don’t have to volunteer the whole time, any amount of help is greatly appreciated!!

Keep in mind that all hours go towards the ISCEP (The International Society of Community Engagement Professionals)
Certification.

For more information, contact Janet Quiroz

Thanks!

Cyber-ShARE Invited Lecture: Writing a Recursive Collective Parallel Algorithm

The Cyber-ShARE Center of Excellence would like to invite you to an invited lecture by Dr. Carsten Burstedde from the Institute for Computational Engineering and Sciences at The University of Texas at Austin. See you there!

Location and Time:  Classroom Building, room 402, Tuesday, April 12, 2:30 – 3:30

Abstract:

Many scientific processes, such as earth’s mantle convection or ice sheet dynamics, can be efficiently simulated using parallel adaptive mesh refinement (AMR).    This method assigns an individual section of the computational grid to each processor.   A central algorithm used in the distribution of grids is MPI_Allgather, which allows each processor to share its number of grid cells with every other processor, and to receive every other’s number of grid cells in return.    While a naive implementation of MPI_Allgather performs badly on large numbers of processors, a recursive divide-and conquer algorithm works well up to the full size of contemporary supercomputers.  In this talk, I will develop such a scalable MPI_Allgather algorithm step by step, and comment on some dos and don’ts for parallel algorithm development.

AHPCRC Summer Institute

Hello Everyone!

For those of you who would like to gain some experience during this Summer, please consider the AHPCRC Summer Institute. The objective of this program is to provide training and hands on experience in the use of computational techniques for science and engineering students, and to prepare those who choose to pursue graduate studies in technology areas dependent upon computational science and engineering.

Through this program you will have the opportunity to gain research experience by working with one of the AHPCRC research groups at Stanford University. Participants receive a stipend of $4,000, travel allowance, dormitory accommodations, and meals at Stanford University.

For additional information please contact:

Thank you,


The objectives of the Institute are to provide training and hands on experience in the use of computational techniques for science and engineering students, and to prepare those who choose to pursue graduate studies in technology areas dependent upon computational science and engineering.
The program curriculum combines short courses in computational engineering methods concentrating on structural mechanics, fluid dynamics, and computer programming for parallel clusters, with a research experience working with one of the AHPCRC research groups at Stanford University.

Participants receive a stipend of $4,000 for the eight-week period.  Participants receive a travel allowance and dormitory accommodations, including meals, at Stanford University.  Students local to Stanford may opt for a higher stipend in exchange for the travel, room and board.

Prerequisites: Students MUST be US citizens.  This program is intended for undergraduate students who anticipate graduation Spring 2012 or later. It is expected that all students in the Summer Institute will have completed freshman calculus and will have some computer programming experience.

Applications should include the following information:

  • An application form (Word format).
  • A one page statement including career and research objectives and computer experience.
  • A current transcript of coursework.  Unofficial transcripts are acceptable.
  • Two letters of recommendation (recommendations from AHPCRC affiliated faculty are given preference, but not required).

This information should be emailed to bbryan@stanford.edu or directed to the following address by March 11, 2011 (late applications cannot be assured of full consideration):
