High Performance Computing topics by XSEDE

XSEDE is pleased to announce a regular series of remote workshops on High-Performance Computing topics.  These hands-on workshops provide a convenient way for researchers to learn about the latest techniques and technologies of current interest in HPC.  We are currently accepting satellite sites for:

June 6-9 – Summer Boot Camp (FINAL CALL – a Few spots remain)

August 15: OpenMP

September 12-13: Big Data

October 3-4: MPI

November 7: GPU Programming Using OpenACC

December 5-6: Big Data

You, or another representative of your institution, should contact us if you are interested in hosting a remote site.  The number of sites will be limited for any given event.  Please note that this is not individual student enrollment; we will post registration pages for student enrollment once the remote sites have been determined.

Unless otherwise stated, this series will run from 11AM-5PM Eastern Time each day so as to encourage participation in all time zones.

Interest in this series has grown dramatically.  We routinely have more sites apply than we can handle.  We will announce the list of accepted sites about 1 month prior to each event.  Please do not assume your site has been accepted until you are notified as such.

These workshops are very hands-on and use the foremost available platforms for their subject matter.  They are a continuation of the previously oversubscribed XSEDE remote workshops and an effort to reduce the backlog of demand while maintaining the quality.

Satellite sites must be able to provide a facility capable of two-way video for the duration of the workshop.  There should also be a full-time TA available to assist with local technical issues.  An AV system test will be scheduled sometime before each workshop.
