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 […]

Argonne’s Paul Messina on Training for Extreme-Scale

Paul Messina, director of science for the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF), discusses the primary objectives, curriculum and importance of the Argonne Training Program on Extreme-Scale Computing (ATPESC), now in its third year. HPCwire: Can you give us an overview of the Argonne Training Program on Extreme-Scale Computing (ATPESC)? Paul Messina: Absolutely, Tiffany. The ATPESC […]

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

Computational scientists now have the opportunity to apply for the upcoming Argonne Training Program on Extreme-Scale Computing (ATPESC). The program provides intensive hands-on training on the key skills, approaches and tools to design, implement, and execute computational science and engineering applications on current supercomputers and the HPC systems of the future. As a bridge to […]

Video: Exascale, Data and Biology

In this video from the 2014 Argonne Training Program on Extreme-Scale Computing, Rick Stevens from Argonne presents: Exascale, Data and Biology. At ATPESC 2014, we captured 67 hours of lectures in 86 videos of presentations by pioneers and elites in the HPC community on topics ranging from programming techniques and numerical algorithms best suited for […]

The Exascale Revolution

The post-petascale era is marked by systems with far greater parallelism and architectural complexity. Failing some game-changing innovation, crossing the next 1000x performance barrier will be more challenging than previous efforts. At the 2014 Argonne National Laboratory Training Program on Extreme Scale Computing (ATPESC), held in August, Professor Pete Beckman delivered a talk on “Exascale Architecture […]
