Cerfacs Enter the world of high performance ...

Online Training Sessions

The CERFACS face-to-face training program in Toulouse attracts each year hundreds of engineers and researchers, showing the need for high-level formation in the field of High Performance Computing. This program is now accompanied by an online training program, based on Small Private Online Courses (SPOC) principles.

 

What is a SPOC?

Small Private Online Courses (SPOC) are:

  • fully online training sessions on a particular topic,
  • divided into consecutive weeks (typically 3 to 6),
  • based on learning activities delivered each week,
  • requiring typically 2 hours of work per week.

Moreover, all our SPOC are closed by a live and interactive conference.

Unlike a MOOC, the number of participants in a SPOC is specific and limited. Our SPOC are designed for engineers, physicists, computer scientists and numerical analysts who want to learn more about a particular topic.

 

Why choosing SPOC?

Here are 5 good reasons to choose SPOC:

  1. No need to travel! You can follow our SPOC from anywhere.
  2. Take your time to understand. You have 7 days to complete each week’s activities.
  3. Work when you want to: the 3 hours of work can be distributed over the week, depending on your schedule.
  4. Learn from and with the other participants during the learning activities.
  5. Interact at all times, with all other participants, ask questions and participate to forums and debates.

 

Next sessions


Fundamentals of thermo-acoustic instabilities

Date: from Monday 27 May, 2019 to Friday 21 June, 2019

Coupling between acoustic waves and flames has become a central issue in the development of many modern combustion systems. This course presents the theoretical background needed to tackle such problems.

Price: students : 300 €  – Cerfacs shareholders : 360 € – others : 504 € (including taxes)

Fundamentals of Lattice Boltzmann Method

Date: October 2018 or March 2019

The Lattice Boltzmann Method (LBM), derived from the gas kinetic theory, has emerged as an alternative to the resolution of Navier-Stokes equations using computational fluid dynamics. LBM is an unsteady method and has several strengths: (1) easy mesh generation on complex geometry and (2) allows massively parallel computing. This training aims at providing basic knowledge on how LBM works.

Fundamentals of Uncertainty Quantification

Date: November 2018

Numerical simulations have reached a great maturity that allows to accurately predict physics. However, uncertainties in the model inputs limit the capacities of deterministic simulations. Uncertainty Quantification provides tools for propagating uncertainties through numerical simulators, quantifying the induced simulator output variability, ranking the inputs by their degree of significance or even analysing a risk. This course will guide you through the uncertainty world and in the end you will be able to solve some uncertainty quantification problems.
