The National Institute for Computational Sciences (NICS) at UT and NIMBioS host an XSEDE workshop on different topics each month related to high performance computing.

Location: Hallam Auditorium (Room 206) at NIMBioS

The in-person workshops are presented using the Wide Area Classroom (WAC) training platform telecast to several satellite sites in the U.S., including NIMBioS.

Next Workshop: December 5-6 – Big Data. This workshop will focus on topics such as Hadoop and Spark and will be presented using the Wide Area Classroom (WAC) training platform.

Registration Deadline: Space is limited to 40 participants. Registration closes at 9 a.m. on Friday, December 1.

Registration Link: XSEDE registration site.

Previous Training Classes

Sep 12-13: Big Data - focused on topics such as Hadoop and Spark, presented using the Wide Area Classroom (WAC) training platform. Workshop Flyer

Oct. 3-4: MPI - intended to give C and Fortran programmers a hands-on introduction to MPI programming. Both days are compact, to accommodate multiple time zones, but packed with useful information and lab exercises. Attendees will leave with a working knowledge of how to write scalable codes using MPI – the standard programming tool of scalable parallel computing. Workshop Flyer

November 7: GPU Programming Using OpenACC. OpenACC is the accepted standard using compiler directives to allow quick development of GPU capable codes using standard languages and compilers. It has been used with great success to accelerate real applications within very short development periods. This workshop assumed knowledge of either C or Fortran programming and had a hands-on component using the Bridges computing platform at the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center. Workshop flyer

The National Science Foundation's Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) is a virtual organization of integrated advanced digital resources available to U.S. researchers. The workshops are co-organized by XSEDE and the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center (PSC).
