[ANN] Training course “Julia for HPC” in Stuttgart, Germany on Oct 24-27, 2023

After the great positive feedback we received at last year’s Julia for HPC training course at HLRS, there will be another opportunity to learn more about using Julia for high-performance computing this fall!

At HLRS, we are offering the second iteration of the “Julia for High-Performance Computing” course, which will take place on-site at the High-Performance Computing Center Stuttgart (HLRS) in Stuttgart, Germany from October 24th through 27th, 2023. The instructor, Carsten Bauer (@carstenbauer), is an HPC and performance engineering expert and has been using and teaching the Julia programming language for several years.

This 4-day course introduces the Julia programming language as a modern approach to high-performance numerical computing. Starting from the foundations and characteristic language features (e.g., multiple dispatch, type inference) the course will discuss and demonstrate how Julia manages to deliver high performance while also being high-level and dynamic. It will teach participants the necessary language concepts to achieve high performance in Julia and avoid common pitfalls. The course will cover “serial” and parallel computing (multithreading, distributed computing, MPI) and will provide insights into how to readily offload computations to NVIDIA GPUs.

Hands-on sessions on each day will allow the participants to interactively explore the language and immediately test and apply the discussed concepts.

This course is especially appropriate for you if

  • you have HPC experience and are interested in Julia, or
  • you have basic Julia knowledge and want to dive into the HPC aspects of the language.

Please register until September 24th, 2023 via our website
The course fee varies between 35 and 150 EUR for EU-based scientists (for more details see course website).

Feel free to forward this announcement to anyone who might be interested as well. And please do not hesitate to get in touch with us in case of questions :blush:


Enrolled :slight_smile:

Personally I have a bit of high level programming experience in Julia, but very little understanding of the important bits for efficient programming in Julia, and (almost) no experience in HPC/GPU, so I suppose you can assign me well to the second group :slight_smile: :slight_smile:

Looking forward to start the course !
