ISC24 BoF Session: Developing a Sustainable Future for HPC and RSE Skills: Training Pathways and Structures


Date: Wednesday 15 May 2024, 10:05-11:05 CEST


This 1-hour BoF session, Developing a Sustainable Future for HPC and RSE Skills: Training Pathways and Structures, was run during the 2024 ISC-HPC conference in Hamburg, Germany by two members of the UNIVERSE-HPC project team. The session was proposed and developed by a wider group of 6 international collaborators to look at how we build training pathways and structures to effectively support technical professionals.

As part of the session, a pen-and-paper exercise was undertaken using a sheet containing a skills space based on the HPC Certification Forum’s skill tree. Attendees were invited to use this exercise sheet to illustrate a learning pathway of their choice.
