Training a New Generation of Supercomputer Users

High-performance computing (HPC) education is essential to our community. From evolving programming techniques and numerical algorithms to transformations in HPC architectures and software, our world is moving fast as we continue progressing toward the Exascale Era. But are we ready for it? Using supercomputers for computational science and engineering (CSE) requires expertise that is not […]

Argonne Training Program on Extreme-Scale Computing Scheduled for July 31-August 12, 2016

ARGONNE, Ill., Computational scientists now have the opportunity to apply for the upcoming Argonne Training Program on Extreme-Scale Computing (ATPESC), to take place from July 31-August 12, 2016. With the challenges posed by the architecture and software environments of today’s most powerful supercomputers, and even greater complexity on the horizon from next-generation and exascale systems, […]

ATPESC gives participants a crash course in supercomputing

Author: Jim Collins, For two weeks this summer, a group of 65 students and early career researchers took up residence at Pheasant Run’s Gallery Hall in St. Charles, IL for an arduous training program designed to teach them the key skills and tools needed to efficiently use leading-edge supercomputers. Packed with technical lectures, hands-on exercises […]

ATPESC 2016 set to groom new generation of supercomputer users

The intensive two-week training program, now in its third year, introduces participants to the key skills and tools needed to carry out computational science and engineering research on leading-edge supercomputers. Renowned scientists and high-performance computing experts will deliver lecturers and guide the hands-on exercises aimed at teaching the attendees how to use massively parallel computing […]
