Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 CERN openlab summer-student programme has been cancelled. We do, however, have a range of exciting online educational activities lined up for the summer.
CERN's annual 'Webfest' will be held online on the weekend of 27-28 June. As always, the event is open to all. Find out more (including how to register) here: https://webfest-online.web.cern.ch/.
We are pleased to announce that we are able to provide mentoring for a small number of those people originally selected for the 2020 edition of our summer-student programme. This is currently foreseen for around a dozen students. Selections have been made based on the practical feasibility of working with certain technologies at distance, as well as on the availability of supervisors.
Alpaka Parallel Programming.
