The August Summer School of High-Tech Programming at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Ljubljana

Summer Workshop HPC 2016.

The Faculty of Mechanical Engineering of the University of Ljubljana is aware of the value of high-tech programming skills. Thus, it offers an opportunity to learn more about HPC in the form of a summer workshop for prospective students studying on the natural science programs. The students of primary and secondary schools under the guidance of teachers will become familiar with the possibilities of using HPC in science and technology, complete practical exercises on a HPCFS supercomputer and build a small circuit based on Raspberry Pi2.

The target audience comprises the students of primary and secondary schools wishing to deal with high-tech programming, discover different programming languages ​​and simulation programs, and acquire skills for running parallel programs. The workshop program is designed to explore the world of high-tech software and meets the actual desires and needs of the participants. Maximum number of participants — 18.

Dates: from 16 to 19 August 2016. The workshop as part of the Poletna šola strojništva na FS program will be held in the Informatics Laboratory No. 17, at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Aškerčeva Strret 6, Ljubljana.

Description. The skills of programming and using simulation software represent a tool of modern engineers, by which they can check and design a product. What once was possible to create and test by experiment only, now can be tested with the help of such simulations. Food products are too expensive to test. Therefore, you can check them through HPC. In today’s world, it is impossible to formulate the right decision though thinking only, but a time-consuming search is good in its own way. With the help of HPC and the corresponding tools, this interactive process becomes fast and efficient. Programming is the process where our thoughts, images, and logic are best crystallized and are implemented under the control of a computer. The available today computer strength of HPC reduces the entire development process, but it is necessary to divide the work between multiple processors. Therefore, the High-Tech Programming School will focus on the consideration of parallel possibilities and practical examples of work on a HPCFS supercomputer, which clearly shows all benefits in the work of instrument making engineers.
