Summer School

When – Oct 17, 2022 – Oct 19, 2022

Where – Bologna, Italy

Submission Deadline – Sep 2, 2022
Notification Due – Sep 9, 2022

The exaFOAM Summer School is a three-day event aimed at OpenFOAM users with challenges related to High-Performance Computing (HPC). Both academic and industrial participants are welcome. There are no fees to participate.

We are planning this event as a physical meeting. If the pandemic situation changes, the plan can also change and the participants will be notified. The exaFOAM Summer School will be held from Oct 17 to Oct 19 (Mon-Wed) in the Italian supercomputer centre CINECA, in Bologna, Italy. (We will miss summer by some weeks, but we will keep the name of the event).

This is a BYOC (Bring Your Own Cluster) event: we will not provide a common HPC environment, the participants are asked to use their own HPC structure (e.g. laptop) and also bring their own test cases. The test cases do not need to be shared with the instructors, to facilitate the engagement of industrial participants.

The focus is on HPC-related challenges, like scalability and load-balancing, and NOT on problems related to case setup or physics. Please keep in mind that we can decline participation if your problem is not HPC-related.

There are a limited number of 25 participants. If you are interested, please fill in the form below with information about yourself, your organization, and your test case / HPC environment.  The submission deadline is on Sep 2. The exaFOAM team will analyse all entries and select the participants, aiming at a balance between academic and industrial users and a mostly broad spectrum of applications.  We will notify the selected participants on Sep 9.
