The School is organized to address, eliminate and alleviate identified obstacles for young researchers to be more easily involved in software development, with specific focus on developing countries. The goal of this school is to fill the identified gap in training related to software development, and to provide young scientists with the basic skills necessary to efficiently write their own scientific codes, optimize, port and benchmark them properly, and to employ the right computational infrastructure effectively.
The school will be organized into two weeks. The first week will be dedicated to scientific software engineering concepts and tools, with emphasis on topics such as software life cycle, writing and managing scientific software, compiling, debugging, and re-using code, etc. Theoretical lectures will be combined with the practical exercises in computer laboratories where students will practice the concepts discussed during the lectures on their own scientific software project. The second week will be then entirely dedicated to completing personal group projects.
Students will work actively on their own specific software and computational problems that should be attached to the application, according to a template downloadable from the web page of the school.
