Julia for HPC @ UCL 2024

Julia for High-Performance Computing workshop

The UCL Centre for Advanced Research Computing is hosting a 4-day Julia for High-Performance Computing (HPC) training course, from February 13th to February 16th 2024. This is an in-person event only, and registration is mandatory, as we have limited capacity in the rooms allocated for the workshop.

Julia is a modern dynamic programming language, particularly well suited for numerical computing and HPC. Starting from the fundamentals of the language, the workshop will go into the details of how to effectively write high-performance code in Julia using task-based multi-threading, distributed computing and MPI, while also avoiding common pitfalls. Attendees will also learn how to offload computations to NVIDIA GPUs in Julia.

The event is supported by UCL ARC through the Fostering International Collaborations in Advanced Digital Research programme. Computing resources are provided by the Paderborn Center for Parallel Computing (PC²) and the NHR Alliance.


The workshop will be hosted at the UCL Institute of Education in London, UK. See the Venue page for more details.

Travel support

We have limited availability to fund travel of people who would not otherwise be able to attend the workshop. We can provide refund for travel, accommodation and subsistence for attendees based outside of London. In any case refund is limited to £1,000 per person and will have to follow UCL Expenses policy, get in touch with the organisers for more details. We particularly welcome applications from people belonging to underrepresented groups (e.g. gender, ethnicity, etc.) in the numerical computing and HPC domains. The outcome of this application will be notified by the end of December 2023.

Update (2023-12-21): we are no longer taking applications for travel support and have selected the people who will receive it.
