CyberColombia: a Regional Initiative to Teach HPC and Computational Sciences

abril 19, 2021


The series Summer School HPC Colombia is an initiative to extend highperformance computing-related knowledge in Colombia, and more widely in Latin America, and integrate expertise and research from academia and industry in the same event. This year’s edition, which is the third in the series, was carried out entirely online due to the outbreak of the COVID 19 pandemic during the first half of the year 2020. In this paper, we summarise the aims, development, deployment, and results of the Summer School HPC Colombia 2020 event. It is an example of the potential that the use of virtual tools and environments has to grow education for HPC.
