Training & Education

Anne McKenna delivering a lecture to an audience.

Need training to use our ICS-ACI systems more effectively? Interested in learning more about HPC? ICS has resources to help you gain the skills you need.

Special Spring 2018 Course: Applications of Parallel Computers

This course teaches both graduate and advanced undergraduate students from diverse departments how use parallel computers both efficiently and productively, i.e. how to write programs that run fast while minimizing programming effort.

ICS-ACI Training Series

Join us for a series of 90-minute interactive seminars for new and intermediate users of ICS-ACI. Gain access to ICS-ACI, learn about its different subsystems, and discover HPC best practices. We offer seminars on “ICS System Basics,” “Introduction to HPC,” and “Intermediate HPC.”

ICS-ACI On-demand Videos

These short videos help you get started using the ICS-ACI system. Learn how to perform basic tasks like logging in to ICS-ACI, running a job, and navigating the ICS-ACI filesystem.

Other Training Sessions

Find distance learning opportunities, on-demand classes, and XSEDE workshops.

Finding External HPC Resources

If you need help gaining access to external HPC resources such as the XSEDE systems, contact our XSEDE Campus Champion Chuck Pavloski (cfp102@psu.edu). You can also watch a useful video outlining the various external HPC resources available to you and how to access them.
