Overview

The AI for Science Bootcamp provides a step-by-step overview of the fundamentals of deep neural networks and walks attendees through the hands-on experience of building and improving deep learning models for applications related to scientific computing and physical systems defined by differential equations. The material will cover more advanced topics such as physics-informed neural networks (PINNs) and operator learning and make use of tools like NVIDIA Modulus to develop and train the models. This online bootcamp is a hands-on learning experience where you will be guided through step-by-step instructions with teaching assistants on hand to help throughout.

This Bootcamp, which will be hosted virtually for two half-days on June 25–26, is co-organized by the High-Performance Computing Center Stuttgart (HLRS), Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC), Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ), Vienna Scientific Cluster (VSC), University of Donja Gorica (UDG), Research Institutes of Sweden (RISE), Linköping University (LiU), OpenACC organization, and NVIDIA for EuroCC Austria, EuroCC@GCS, EuroCC Montenegro, and EuroCC Sweden, all National Competence Centres for High-Performance Computing.

Please ensure you meet all prerequisites / eligibility before you apply.
