The HPC Certification Forum
The goals of the HPC Certification Forum (HPC-CF) are:
- Standardizing the HPC knowledge representation into fine-grained competencies
- Establishing internationally recognized certificates attesting knowledge
- Supporting an ecosystem around the HPC competencies
The HPC Certification Forum is one of those ideas so good and so right that you wonder why no one thought of it before. The Forum's Steering Board and members have done the technical community an enormous service by providing a concise training in what it takes to be HPC-literate. I wish we had had this thirty years ago.

The agenda of the BoF is now online!
A brief presentation was given by Lev Lafayette to the conference on the HPC Certification Forum.
The HPC Certification forum organizes together with Centers for the Nationales Hochleistungsrechnen (NHR) on the 14. December a workshop.
We analyzed the current 55 submissions to the survey and created an intermediate result.
We are conducting a survey for HPC practitioners to identify how the training community can progress most effectively. Please contribute to our efforts by filling the form until October 15th!
