ICS-ACI Training Series Spring 2018

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — The Institute for CyberScience (ICS) will hold a series of training sessions in spring 2018 for researchers who use high-performance computing (HPC). The training will cover HPC best practices and build attendees’ capacity to use Penn State’s high-performance research cloud, the Advanced CyberInfrastructure (ICS-ACI).

ICS will offer four different training seminars. Seating is limited, so please RSVP.

  • “ICS System Basics” includes how to get an ICS account and introduces ICS-ACI’s various subsystems.
  • “Submitting your First Job” covers how to run simple jobs and move data on ICS-ACI.
  • “Intro to HPC Programming” addresses how to compile basic codes and prepare jobs to run in parallel (using several computational cores at once).
  • “Intermediate HPC” covers version control, compilation automation, scaling studies and other optimization techniques. This session is for ICS-ACI users who already know how to submit and run jobs on the cluster and how to compile and run simple codes.

A laptop is required for “Submitting your First Job,” “Introduction to HPC Programming,” and “Intermediate HPC.”

Each of the four seminars will be offered twice. Users need only attend one session of each seminar. The full spring 2018 schedule includes:
