The 2011 Summer Internships in Parallel Computational Science are underway at CISL. The program, known as SIParCS, had a record number of applicants in its fifth year, growing steadily from 10 in 2007 to 99 in 2011.

This summer’s 17 interns will be working throughout NCAR on various projects involving application development, applied mathematics, computer science, visualization, and engineering, among others. New this year are two engineering internships dedicated to the NCAR-Wyoming Supercomputing Center (NWSC) project. One of those two positions was filled by a student from the University of Wyoming, an NCAR NWSC partner.

The summer internships are 10 weeks in duration. Program requirements, beyond working on the projects, include keeping a research journal, attending appropriate technical seminars, attending skills-enhancing workshops, and giving an oral presentation of results at the end of the summer. The 2011 interns' presentations will take place 25-29 July at NCAR’s Mesa Lab Main Seminar Room.  For updated information on the 2011 presentation schedule and abstracts, please check back at www2.cisl.ucar.edu/siparcs/presentations.
