Parallel Programming Foundations Institute at TACC – July 31-August 4, 2017 From: Jason Allison This 5-day workshop will provide participants with an introduction to developing parallel applications for modern HPC systems. Participants will learn about profiling and optimizing applications, concepts for domain and data decomposition, developing shared-memory parallel applications using OpenMP and distributed-memory parallel applications using MPI, creating hybrid OpenMP/MPI applications for modern manycore architectures, and debugging parallel applications. Hands-on exercises done on the new Stampede2 supercomputer at TACC will help participants to better understand lecture concepts using concrete examples on modern hardware. Price for students, faculty, and academic researchers is $400. Registration details and full agenda can be found at: https://www.tacc.utexas.edu/education/institutes/parallel-programming-foundations
Call for Participation
Call for Participation: Gateways 2017 (October 23-25, at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor) is now accepting submissions of papers, demos, tutorials, and panels (2-4 pages) on the topic of science or engineering gateways, which are integrated, user-friendly interfaces to scientific computing, data, and other domain-specific resources to support research and education.
Submissions may focus on design, use, impact, development processes, sustainability, best practices, or any other aspect that you think fellow gateway creators or users will find interesting to learn. We also welcome educational topics directed toward the next generation of gateway creators.
The primary submission DEADLINE IS JUNE 5, 2017, and a poster session deadline (open to all) will be September 8. Read more details in the Call for Participation: http://sciencegateways.org/gateways2017/call.
Call for Participation: Texas A&M Research Computing Week – June 5-9, 2017
Conference web site: http://u.tamu.edu/HPRCWeek
Texas A&M High Performance Research Computing is hosting a week-long series of events June 5-9, 2017 to introduce the A&M research community to computing and data resources and expertise available to support research, and, for advanced users, to provide additional training.
The week will start with morning and afternoon workshops on a variety of topics on using local and national research computing resources, and will end with a Symposium on Thursday and Friday presenting talks and posters about best practices in computing and data intensive research, and national perspectives on building cyberinfrastructure capacity in the U.S. A Reception and Poster Session are planned for late Thursday afternoon.
Please help us refine the program by registering your interest in participating in Research Computing Week events and by indicating what topics you would find most interesting. If you would like to present a short (~20 minute) research talk or poster about how you use computing in your research please provide a title and short abstract on the registration form.
The preliminary deadline for submissions is May 5, 2017 so please respond as soon as possible. As the program develops we will keep you informed.
