The need for computing resources is still growing. The size and complexity of computational infrastructures pose a significant threat to day-to-day scientific work.

The field of computational sciences is an interdisciplinary area in which scientists or practitioners have to contribute with their own expertise to obtain innovative results. There is no recipe for success in this field, but in order to achieve good results, three types of actors have to work closely together:

This HPC Camp has been organized to fulfill two main objectives:

With the combination of the challenge and proposed intensive training, this school will become a regional reference for the integration of different HPC actors, helping to integrate the community.

Organization

This school is co-organized by CSC-CONICET (Center for Computational Simulation for Technological Applications) and Departamento de Computación (Computer Science Department), Facultad de Ciencias Exactas y Naturales (School of Sciences), Universidad de Buenos Aires.
