The upcoming Ontario East High-Performance Computing (HPC) Summer School 2021 will take place August 16-26, featuring workshops guided by experts from Queen's University, the University of Ottawa, University of Waterloo, and McMaster University. The instructor from the University of Ottawa will be Dr. Jarno van der Kolk with the help of Peter Darveau. Both work in Information Technology in the IT Research team. 

The purpose of the Summer School is to help researchers use the many available HPC resources that can accelerate their research and help with the processing of their data. There will be full-day workshops on assorted topics. Participants will learn about data visualization, preparation, and security. As well, courses will be given on Python programming and GPU programming. 

This year, the Summer School will be completely virtual, a departure from the previous Summer School held in 2019 which was in-person at the University of Ottawa. A bonus of being online is that the event is free, and no travel is required. As a perk, the Summer School will last two weeks instead of one, allowing participants to attend all the courses instead of having to select which one to attend due to scheduling constraints.
