XSEDE HPC Workshop: Summer Bootcamp

June 24-27, 2014

In response to the demand for a Hybrid Computing workshop PSC, along with XSEDE, will present a special all-in-one version of the XSEDE Workshops that will allow us to meaningfully cover hybrid computing. 

This 4 day event will include MPI, OpenMP, OpenACC and accelerators and run June 24-27.  We will conclude with a special hybrid exercise contest that will challenge the students to apply their skills over the following 3 weeks and be awarded the First Annual XSEDE Summer Boot Camp Championship Trophy - worth up to $8.

Due to demand, this workshop will be telecast to several satellite sites.

This workshop is NOT available via a webcast.

You may register for this event at any of the following sites:

  • Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center
  • National Center for Supercomputing Applications
  • The University of Utah
  • The University of Houston, Clear-Lake
  • University of Connecticut
  • The University of Iowa
  • Ohio Supercomputer Center
  • Florida State University
  • University of South Carolina
  • University of California, Los Angeles
  • The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania

XSEDE, the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment, is the most advanced, powerful, and robust collection of integrated digital resources and services in the world. It is a single virtual system that scientists and researchers can use to interactively share computing resources, data, and expertise. XSEDE integrates the resources and services, makes them easier to use, and helps more people use them.
