 SCI and the SCI Summer School Format

The Scalable Coherent Interface (SCI) IEEE Std 1596-1992 is one of the enabling
interconnect technologies for high performance computing. The SCI Summer School
was an intensive 3-day event involving 50% tutorial and 50% laboratory sessions with
a strong collegiate ethos. It is targeted at both newcomers to SCI as well as those
experienced in the field, with the objective to increase both the breadth and depth
of their working knowledge of SCI.
