COMING SUMMER 2019
The Data Science and High Performance Computing (HPC) Boot Camps are one-week intensive training programs that offer guided instruction and hands-on learning.Â Both camps are held annually in the summer at Rice University and are taught by Rice University faculty.
These training sessions introduce the skills needed to help leverage cutting edge data analytics tools, and get you up to speed on skills required to start leveraging the latest HPC and Data Science tools. Early registration is recommended as these courses fill up fast!

The HPC Boot Camp
Leading HPC faculty and staff members from Rice University serve as instructors for the HPC Boot Camp. The curriculum covers topics ranging from MPI, OpenMP, Pthreads, Performance analysis (HPCToolkit and Jumpshot), and accelerated computing using GPGPU (OpenCL and CUDA). Using Riceâ€™s shared computing infrastructure, hands on laboratory sessions supported by the instructor and lab assistants, will be offered each day allowing participants to practice what is being taught in the class sessions. Participants will also have access to Rice resources to work on the lab exercises outside of class as desired.
Prerequisites: Participants should be comfortable with using Linux command line for program development and compiling. You should have basic knowledge of development and debugging of sequential programs in C/C++ and/or Fortran.
REGISTRATION FOR THE HPC BOOT CAMP IS NOW CLOSED.
The Data Science Boot Camp
