The NHERI Computational Modeling and Simulation Center (SimCenter) is hosting its second annual SimCenter Programming Bootcamp July 22 - 26, 2019. The overall goal of the Bootcamp is to train NHERI researchers in programming paradigms not covered in traditional civil engineering courseware, but which are needed to advance their capabilities with regard to simulation for natural hazards engineering.
The target audience is graduate students, postdocs, and new faculty who are interested in simulating the effects of natural hazards on building components, structures, and communities. During the five-day Bootcamp, participants will be instructed by and interact extensively with the SimCenter’s lead development team. A sampling of course modules to be offered include:

· Programming in C and C++

· Developing Applications in C and C++

· Parallel Programming for High Performance Computing with MPI

· Application Development: UI Design & Qt

· Hands on Application Development

· Parallel Exercises on TACC's Stampede2 (High Performance Computing)

· Executing Regional Simulations

Each day’s agenda (8:30am – 5pm) will include instruction, hands-on coding exercises, example applications, accessing High Performance Computing resources at NHERI, and discussions on working within NHERI using SimCenter products. Daily homework will be assigned. Refreshments at breaks and lunch will be provided. The Bootcamp will be held at UC Berkeley's Richmond Field Station. The final agenda and logistics will be issued to registrants
