Learn Supercomputing - FREE FREE

If you are considering migrating your work to the next
level of computational resources this is a great introduction to what's out there and how to get started. This year's "supercomputing in Plain English" workshop is free for audience of not just computer scientists but especially scientists and engineers, including a mixture of undergraduates, graduate students, faculty and staff.

These workshops focus on fundamental issues of HPC as they relate to Computational and Data-enabled Science & Engineering, including:

* the storage hierarchy;
* instruction-level parallelism;
* high performance compilers;
* shared memory parallelism (e.g., OpenMP);
* distributed parallelism (e.g., MPI);
* HPC application types and parallel paradigms;
* multicore optimization;
* high throughput computing;
* GPGPU computing;
* scientific and I/O libraries;
* scientific visualization.

Supercomputing in Plain English (SiPE), Spring 2013

Available live in person and live via videoconferencing

Tuesdays starting Jan 22 2013, 2:00pm Central Time
(4:00pm Atlantic, 3:00pm Eastern, 1:00pm Mountain, 12:00noon Pacific)

Live in person: National Weather Center 1313
Live via FREE videoconferencing: details to be announced


The key philosophy of the SiPE workshops is that an HPC-based code should be maintainable, extensible and, most especially, portable across platforms, and should be sufficiently flexible that it can  adapt to, and adopt, emerging HPC paradigms.
