Virtual School of Computational Science and Engineering

The VSCSE Summer School continues to be a popular choice for graduate students, post- doctoral students and professionals from academia, government and industry to gain the skills they need to leverage the power of cutting-edge computational resources.

XSEDE Workshops

XSEDE HPC Workshop: OpenMP (Jan. 9; 11 a.m.–5 p.m.; 223 Computer Building; register by Jan. 5)

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. This event will be presented using the Wide Area Classroom(WAC) training platform. Register  by Jan. 5

Other Training Opportunities

Supercomputing in Plain English Workshops Spring 2018 (Tuesdays from Jan. 23-May 1; 1:30 p.m.; online)

The Supercomputing in Plain English (SiPE) free workshops focus on fundamental issues of high-performance computing as they relate to science and engineering. SiPE especially targets scientists and engineers, including a mixture of undergraduates, graduate students, postdocs, faculty, staff and professionals.
