Scaling to New Heights Workshop

The NSF PACI leading-edge centers (NCSA, PSC, SDSC) together with the Center for Computational Sciences (ORNL) and NERSC, conducted a workshop examining the issues involved in scaling applications to thousands of processors in May 2002.

The workshop included a poster session, invited and contributed talks, and a panel session. Participants examined the issues involved in developing and adapting research software to effectively exploit systems comprised of thousands of processors.

Subsequently, a Birds-of-a-Feather talk was presented at SC2002 in November 2002 which collected the ideas gathered at the workshop.

About Outreach and Training

Workshops incorporate both lectures and extensive hands-on sessions. Programming exercises are carefully designed to reinforce concepts and techniques taught in class.

Instructors have strong scientific and technical backgrounds and are available for individual consultation, including help with participants' own coding needs.

Biomedical Workshops

The education and outreach program of the Biomedical Applications Group includes workshops and online teaching tools, online courses, and workshop webcasts, among other approaches.
