Supercomputers are helping us to solve the world greatest challenges but who is helping us to harness the computational power of supercomputers?
The HPC Certification Forum is a community effort that aims to provide an international certification program for the skills needed by practitioners to harness supercomputers. The HPC Certification Forum aims to clearly categorise, define, and examine competencies, which will be beneficial to all stake-holders involved in training and education. To make this effort relevant to the whole HPC community, a number of on-line surveys and polls will be created in order to capture and estimate the importance of various tools, technologies and skills that are expected from HPC practitioners.
