Quantum Computing Summer School at Los Alamos National Laboratory

The Quantum Computing Summer School at Los Alamos National Laboratory is an immersive 10-week curriculum that includes tutorials from world-leading experts in quantum computation as well as one-on-one mentoring from LANL staff scientists who are conducting cutting-edge quantum computing research. Summer school fellowship recipients will be exposed to the theoretical foundations of quantum computation and will become skilled at programming commercial quantum computers, such as those developed by D-Wave Systems and IBM. Ten students will be awarded a fellowship from LANL that covers travel, living expenses in Los Alamos, and salary, with a fellowship value ranging from $7,500 to $13,000, based on academic rank (junior, senior, 1st year graduate student, etc.).

Registration is now open for the Scaling to Petascale Institute, which will be held June 26-30, 2017. The petascale institute is a collaboration between multiple institutions. The purpose of the institute is for people who are developing, modifying, and supporting research projects to enhance their knowledge and skills to scale software to petascale and emerging extreme-scale computing systems. Basic familiarity with Linux, programming, and MPI are recommended. The agenda includes introductory and advanced MPI, OpenMP, scaling, profiling, and debugging, GPU programming, OpenACC, Phi programming, scientific libraries, Parallel I/O, HDF5, Globus, and software engineering.
