PRACE Winter School 2014

Where can you enjoy intensive High Performance Computing training and white sand Mediterranean beaches on a balmy February day?


In Tel Aviv!


Israel’s Inter-University Computation Center (IUCC), in cooperation with PRACE and LinkSCEEM, is proud to host the 2014 PRACE Winter School on February 10-13, 2014 at the Tel Aviv University Campus.


The unique two-part program includes:


  • Hands-on introductory workshop on using PRACE High Performance Computing (HPC) resources
  • Mini-workshop on "The Future of HPC: Israeli Innovation"


The program is free of charge (not including travel and accommodations).


Applications are open to researchers, academics and industrial researchers residing in PRACE member countries, and European Union Member States and Associated Countries. The hands-on workshop is limited to 60 participants, so we encourage you to apply early.


All classes and training will be in English.

LinkSCEEM is offering a number of limited funded competitive fellowships to assist in flight and accommodation costs for participants from the Eastern Mediterranean region. Applications can be made on the event registration page.




The Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE) is an international non-profit association with its seat in Brussels. The PRACE Research Infrastructure provides a persistent world-class high performance computing service for scientists and researchers from academia and industry in Europe. The computer systems and their operations accessible through PRACE are provided by 4 PRACE members (BSC representing Spain, CINECA representing Italy, GCS representing Germany and GENCI representing France). The Implementation Phase of PRACE receives funding from the EU’s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) under grant agreements RI-261557, RI-283493 and RI-312763. For more information, see


About LinkSCEEM

The LinkSCEEM-2 project aims at the establishment of a high performance computing (HPC) eco-system in the Eastern Mediterranean region by interlinking and coordinating regional compute, storage and visualization resources to form an integrated e-infrastructure. The main project objective is to enable scientific research in the region by engaging and supporting research communities with an initial emphasis in the fields of climate research, digital cultural heritage and synchrotron radiation applications. The LinkSCEEM-2 project has received funding from the European Community's seventh framework programme FP7 (2007-2013), Capacities Research Infrastructure, INFRA-2010-1.2.3 Virtual Research Communities, Combination of Collaborative Project and Coordination and Support Actions (CP-CSA) under grant agreement no RI-261600.
