The XIV edition of the ESC School will be held from the 4th to the 12th of October 2023.
More information including registration details, organisation and application procedure will be available soon.
Welcome to ESC:
School on Efficient Scientific Computing
The aim of the ESC school is to offer the participants the opportunity to improve their computing competences, learning from qualified and experienced scientists how to best exploit modern hardware and software technologies in their daily scientific work.
The program proposes introductory lectures on trends in hardware architectures and parallel programming, with more in-depth lessons on modern C++, effective memory usage, floating-point computation and programming in a heterogeneous world combining multi-threading, GPUs and clusters.
The school is organized as a small class of about 30 students, alternating lectures, hands-on sessions and self-managed time slots for the best learning experience, with lecturers available during the whole week for insights and discussions.
Now at the 13th edition, the school has already welcomed hundreds of students, always with a very high appreciation.
"The amount of detail provided on each topic is incredible, and tutors and teachers are always available for questions and curiosities on every aspect. There was plenty of time to have a look at the exercises and the ratio of #students/#tutor was perfect."
"The organization of classes is on very high level, I think it is brushed into near perfection. The topics were presented in very clear way with a lot of consideration for people that were not familiar with some basic concepts."
"I really enjoyed the possibility to interact directly with the experts, ask questions, get information during a chat in the coffee break, as well as the well organized consolidation sessions. It was great also the panoramic view of the different options about optimization and parallelization, from simple vectorization, to more complex offloading of processes."
"I really enjoyed the variety of the lessons arguments. In my future projects I definitely will employ some of the techniques shown during this school. The hands on lessons were also very useful to fix the notions right away."
"The location of the school was exceptional: Bertinoro is simply incredible!
"Lectures had a didactic approach: they were lessons, not only presentations. Tutors were clear and always available for further explanations."
"Learning by doing is the only approach that really works and it is the motto of this school."
"The scientific and social environment has been great, large support from both students and teachers. Large variety of topics, satisfying interests and everybody’s curiosity. The school totally matched my expectations of enlarging my knowledge and gain some experience in other computing topics."
"The school introduced the latest C++17 standard. Consolidation time slots were a nice introduction to the school.
