Algorithms & Software for SUpercomputers with emerging aRchitEctures (ASSURE)

ASSURE is an NSF-funded US-China International Research Experience for graduate Students (IRES). This collaboration between the Tsinghua/National Supercomputing Center at Wuxi (NSCC-Wuxi) and US-based researchers engages Ph.D. students in research learning experiences that increase their capacity to conduct research on supercomputing systems, (including those with classical and emerging architectures), and their exposure to international collaborative research environments.

This is a paid, 10-week computational research opportunity for US graduate students and their research mentors to explore applications on China’s home grown supercomputer. Application areas include: Earth & Weather Systems, Advanced Manufacturing, Big Data and Machine Learning. Students spend 8 weeks in China at either the National Supercomputing Center in China, Wuxi (NSCC-Wuxi) or East China Normal University, Shanghai (ECNU-Shanghai)! Funding is provided for a student's round-trip travel to China, accommodation and meals, international health insurance and a stipend ($500 per week). Faculty mentor travel support is also available for promising collaborations.

Program dates: June 1 - Aug 7, 2020
