Super and Distributed Computing Summer Camp, Manizales 2014

School Mission

Taking advantage of the Internet and high speed networks available today, one can exploit high performance computing infrastructures from anywhere, even located in the middle of the nature.

Inspired by this idea SC-Camp is an initiative of researchers to offer to undergraduate and master students state-of-the-art lectures and programming practical sessions upon High Performance and Distributed Computing topics. SC-Camp is a non-profit event, addressed to every student including those that lack of financial backup. Last year all students that applyied in due time received a grant to attend lectures, including meals and accomadations. This year the event will be hosted by BIOS Centro de Bioinformática Y Biología Computacional in the outstanding park of Manizales, Colombia.

SC-Camp 2014

SC-Camp 2014 features 6 days of scientific sessions and 1 leisure day with an organized activity (for example, hiking or rafting). During the lectures there will be held several parallel programming practical sessions.

We welcome applications of undergraduate (preferable at last year) or master students from all areas of engineering and science with strong interest upon High Performance and Distributed Computing. Due to the advanced content of lectures some basic notions of Parallel and Distributed Computing along with programming skills are desired. All courses and lectures will be held in English, thus a good knowledge of English -both oral and written- is mandatory. The scientific and steering committee will evaluate the application forms based on the applicant’s scientific background and their motivation letter. This year, as last year, we expect to accept from 20 up to 40 students. The registration fee includes accommodation and access to all scientific lectures.


The summer school focus on the following topics:

  • Parallel Programming
  • Multiprocessors Programming
  • Distributed Systems
    • Cluster Computing
    • Grid Computing
    • Cloud Computing
    • Volunteer Computing
    • Hybrid and GPU Programming
  • Resource/Job Management & Scheduling
  • Virtualisation
  • Fault tolerance
  • Green Computing
  • Performance Evaluation
