12th Thematic CERN School of Computing

The 12th Thematic CERN School of Computing (tCSC 2023) will take place on 11-17 June 2023. The academic programme will focus on Scientific Software for Heterogeneous Architectures, covering areas ranging from computer architectures to parallel and optimised software, and heterogeneous programming (CPU, GPU, HPC …).

tCSC 2023 is organized in collaboration with the University of Split Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture (FESB) and is hosted at the Mediterranean Institute For Life Sciences (MedILS) Conference Centre. The Centre is a historical building situated in a wooded and landscaped park, located on the Adriatic Sea coast, a few kilometers from the center of Split.
