Preparation course master builder - Module 3 (in German), opens an external URL in a new window

The competence of a master builder is non-controversial in the austrian building economy. The large education pitch on interdisciplinary know-how and lay the foundation stone for networked planning and contruction.

Representative for energy efficiency (in German)

Lernen Sie die Grundlagen der nachhaltigen Energieoptimierung kennen, führen Sie Energiedatenerfassungen durch, lesen und verstehen Sie richtig einen Energieausweis und leiten Sie daraus eine energetische Bewertung ab.

Outer shell (in German), opens in new window

The outer shell plays an increasingly decisive role in the construction of buildings. It contributes significantly to the quality of construction work and is an important aspect of building protection.

Building in the "Gründerzeit" style (in German)

For structural alterations of Gründerzeit houses, the survey of the actual condition is an essential part of the application for a building permit. Among other things, this is intended to prevent structural changes, such as high-quality attic conversions, from being carried out in buildings that will no longer be stable or usable within the foreseeable future.

Engineering timber construction: Part 1&2 (in German)

With this course, you will receive an introduction to the essential contents of EC5 as the current design standard for timber structures, taking into account national supplements. You will get to know the context and background of current EC5 design recommendations and also receive tips for the practical implementation of tasks with the help of structural analysis software (Dlubal) using practical examples. If necessary, there is also the opportunity to address personal questions and discuss them in general.

Earthquake verification in existing buildings (in German)

In the basic course you will receive information on building dynamics, formal basics, verifications and special features according to the age of the building as well as on computational and static verifications. The advanced course focuses on the in-depth study of structural dynamics and statics as well as on the execution of calculations, practical examples and exercises.

MatCalc Basic Thermokinetic Simulations

This 4-days course gives an introduction to modeling and simulation of stable and metastable phase equilibria and the kinetics of phase transformations in solid-state materials. It covers basic equilibrium thermodynamics and precipitation kinetics modeling, discussing both the theoretical approaches as well as practical examples.

VSC Training Course: Parallelization with MPI

On clusters and distributed memory architectures, parallel programming with the Message Passing Interface (MPI) is the dominating programming model. This 3 days course teaches parallel programming with MPI starting from a beginners level. Hands-on sessions (in C and Fortran) will allow users to immediately test and understand the basic constructs of the Message Passing Interface (MPI). (Content Level: 70% for beginners, 30% advanced)

This course is organized by the Vienna Scientific Cluster (VSC) in cooperation with the High-Performance Computing-Center Stuttgart (HLRS).

VSC Training Course: Shared memory parallelization with OpenMP

The focus of this 2 days course is on shared memory parallelization with OpenMP for dual-core, multi-core, shared memory, and ccNUMA platforms. This course teaches OpenMP starting from a beginners level. Hands-on sessions (in C and Fortran) will allow users to immediately test and understand the OpenMP directives, environment variables, and library routines.

This course is organized by the Vienna Scientific Cluster (VSC) in cooperation with the High-Performance Computing-Center Stuttgart (HLRS).

VSC Training Course: Parallel I/O, opens in new window

This course will be about parallel I/O with a special focus on portable data formats. It will introduce the use of the HDF5 and NetCDF (NetCDF4 and PnetCDF) library interfaces, and hands-on exercises (in C/C++ or Fortran) will allow to immediately test and understand their usage. Performance hints, optimization potential, and best practices for I/O will be discussed in detail throughout the whole course.

This course ist organized by the Vienna Scientific Cluster (VSC).

VSC Training Course: Introduction to Hybrid Programming in HPC, opens in new window

Most HPC systems are clusters of shared memory nodes. Such SMP nodes can be small multi-core CPUs up to large many-core CPUs. Parallel programming may combine the distributed memory parallelization on the node interconnect (e.g., with the Message Passing Interface - MPI) with the shared memory parallelization inside of each node (e.g., with OpenMP or MPI-3.0 shared memory). This course analyses the strengths and weaknesses of several parallel programming models on clusters of SMP nodes.

This course is organized by the Vienna Scientific Cluster (VSC) in cooperation with the High-Performance Computing-Center Stuttgart (HLRS) and the Erlangen Regional Computing Center (RRZE).

VSC - Node-Level Performance Engineering 

This course covers performance engineering approaches on the compute node level. "Performance engineering" as we define it is more than employing tools to identify hotspots and bottlenecks. It is about developing a thorough understanding of the interactions between software and hardware. This process must start at the core, socket, and node level, where the code gets executed that does the actual computational work. Once the architectural requirements of a code are understood and correlated with performance measurements, the potential benefit of optimizations can often be predicted. We introduce a "holistic" node-level performance engineering strategy based on the Roofline model and apply it to different algorithms from computational science. Architectural details that are relevant for performance, such as pipelining, SIMD, superscalarity, memory hierarchies, etc., are covered in due detail.

This course provides –via lectures, demos, and hands-on labs– scientific training in Computational Science, and in addition, the scientific exchange of the participants among themselves.

This course is organized by the Vienna Scientific Cluster (VSC) in cooperation with the Erlangen Regional Computing Center (RRZE).

Chinese for Beginners - Introductory Course (in German), opens an external URL in a new window

During the last two decades, the rapid economic growth drew a lot of foreign companies to invest in China. In order to be actively involved in China, it is not only important to possess the necessary technical and business know-how, but it is also important to know the language, the colloquial forms as well as the culture and society of the country.
