XSEDE HPC Training Series

We are pleased to present monthly workshops sponsored by XSEDE on a variety of HPC topics.   Each workshop is telecast to several satellite sites. See the page for a particular workshop for a list of the sites that will carry that workshop.

 

Upcoming workshops

XSEDE HPC Workshop: OpenMP - October 4, 2016

XSEDE along with the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center are pleased to announce a one day OpenMP workshop. This workshop is intended to give C and Fortran programmers a hands-on introduction to OpenMP programming. Attendees will leave with a working knowledge of how to write scalable codes using OpenMP.

2016 Workshops

XSEDE HPC Workshop: OpenMP - January 20, 2016

XSEDE along with the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center and the National Center for Supercomputing Applications at the University of Illinois are pleased to announce a one day OpenMP workshop. This workshop is intended to give C and Fortran programmers a hands-on introduction to OpenMP programming. Attendees will leave with a working knowledge of how to write scalable codes using OpenMP.

XSEDE HPC Workshop : MPI - February 9-10, 2016

This workshop is 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.

XSEDE HPC Workshop : GPU Programming Using OpenACC - March 8, 2016

XSEDE along with the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center and the National Center for Supercomputing Applications at the University of Illinois are pleased to announce a one day OpenACC workshop.  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 assumes knowledge of either C or Fortran programming.

Introduction to Bridges - March 31, 2016

XSEDE along with the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center is pleased to announce the first workshop featuring one of XSEDE’s newest HPC resources, Bridges.
