From 24 to 28 August 2020, we realised the Summer School on Effective HPC for Climate and Weather 2020. The virtual summer school provided five days of learning and debating HPC systems and climate and weather applications.

Topics ranged from Parallel Programming, Performance Analysis, Storage Management to Machine Learning and Containers. Daniel Klocke of the German Meteorological Service (DWD) gave the keynote talk, in which he presented his work on global storm- and ocean eddy-resolving coupled climate simulations and the contributions of projects DYAMOND and DYAMOND2. All sessions were recorded and the recordings, together with the presentations and material for each session, are available on the main summer school web page.

The summer school received 162 applications, and 54 participants who attended more than 70% of the event were granted a certificate of participation.
