Information for selected students

Before you travel

Before traveling to the School, we recommend that you stay informed of any information your local health agencies may make available and take reasonable precautions to protect yourself. The School Organizing Committee continues to closely monitor this dynamic situation and will provide updates with any developments.

Measures to fight and contain the spread of the Covid-19

At the onset of Covid-19, CeUB has implemented all measures foreseen by the regulations of the ‘Shared Protocol to control the measures to fight and contain the spread of the Covid-19 in work environments’, protocol which was signed by the Government and the social partners.

In order to attend the school, all selected students need to be in possession of the Green Certification.

Who does not fulfill this request, must provide a certification attesting to one of these conditions:

  • to have been vaccinated;
  • to have carried out the swab (molecular or antigenic) with a negative result no later than 48 hours before departure;
  • the healing from Sars-Cov-2 with termination of isolation.

Furthermore, during the entire duration fo the School, all attendees are strongly recommended to respect social distancing and all precautionary measures put in place by Italian Authorities to respond to the Coronavirus.

Registration and welcome dinner (Sunday, 3 October 2021)

The reception and registration desk will be open from 17.30 to 20.30 at the Revellino (Via Frangipane, 6 - Bertinoro). The welcome dinner will be served at 20:30 in the canteen of the Centre (Via Frangipane, 2 - Bertinoro). 


Students presentations and posters

On Monday and Tuesday afternoon, participants will be invited to present themselves with a "lightning", 5 minutes talk focused on the current research activity and interests related to the the field of scientific computing. In addition, students will have the chance of illustrating in more detail their research topics and/or recent scientific results by means of posters that will be exposed during the School (poster in A1 size with portrait orientation).

Laptop and required software

Students are kindly requested to have their own laptop. The required software is an SSH client to be able to connect to a remote Linux machine. Optionally, an X11 server (available by default on Linux and Mac, to be installed on Windows) may become useful to display graphical applications running remotely.

There will be a limited number of laptops on request. If needed, please ask the secretariat at least 15 days before the beginning of the school.

Students may also want to install on their laptop a recent C++ compiler, so that thay can play locally with many of the examples and exercises that will be presented.   Although participants can of course do all the exercises on the systems the School provides, they may consider installing beforehand a recent gcc compiler on their laptop to run the OpenMP exercises directly on it (on Apple laptops, they should install X-code with the command line options enabled as well).
This would make it possible for them to take home at least part of the environment that they will be playing with during the School.


Wireless LAN will be available in the conference rooms.

Personal username and password will be given to each participant at the School venue. Instructions on how to connect to the WiFi will be also given. Availability of PCs for general access is not foreseen.

Final certification

On the last day of the School, students will have the opportunity to test their learning achievements through a written exam. The successful outcome of the test will be reported on a written certificate for those interested, to be requested on arrival, at the registration desk.

A simple attendance certificate will also be available on request.
