In the context of the European Joint Doctoral Programme “High Performance Computing in Life sciences, Engineering And Physics (HPC-LEAP)” coordinated by the Cyprus Institute in Nicosia, the University of Wuppertal organises a School on "Numerical Analysis and Algorithms Towards Exascale: CoS-1". The School takes place at the University of Wuppertal from 23 September 2015 till 13 October 2015 and is organised by Prof. Dr. Andreas Frommer and Prof. Dr. Francesco Knechtli with the assistance of Mrs Brigitte Schultz.

The lectures cover partial differential equations (by Prof. Dr. Michael Günther), molecular dynamics (by Prof. Dr. Reinhard Hentschke), iterative solvers (by Dr. Karsten Kahl), Monte Carlo algorithms (by Dr. Graham Moir), communication avoiding algorithms (by Prof. Dr. Bruno Lang) and asynchronous iterations (by Prof. Dr. Andreas Frommer).

HPC-LEAP is a network that involves several European Universities and Research Institutes and industrial Partners. Its speciality is the award of a joint Ph.D. degree by two Universities. The HPC-LEAP fellows do their research at the respective two Universities and at secondment places. The research fields are HPC architectures and technologies, modelling and algorithms, turbulent flows, lattice quantum chromodynamics and computational biology. Eight HPC-LEAP fellows are enrolled in Wuppertal.
