On-site WorkshopsThroughout the year, Livermore Computing (LC) offers on-site workshops focusing on parallel programming, parallel tools, and the use of its High Performance Computing (HPC) systems. Introductory level workshops are intended for new users, with the goals of improving LC user productivity and minimizing the obstacles typically encountered by new users of such complex systems. Introductory level workshops typically include both lectures and hands-on exercises using the actual machines. Other workshops are targeted towards more experienced users and can cover a range of topics related to new technologies, performance/programming tools, ASC cross-platform training, and other topics as requested by LC users, researchers, and staff. These workshops may or may not include "hands-on" exercise time. Most hands-on workshops are held in the Laboratory Training Center. Lecture only training can be scheduled in other venues as needed.
Tri-Lab Cross-Platform WorkshopsLC collaborates with Los Alamos National Laboratory and Sandia National Laboratory to develop and deliver cross-platform ASC parallel computing workshops. These workshops can be delivered at any of the Tri-lab sites and can include information specific to more than one ASC architecture. Like the on-site workshops, these workshops typically include both lectures and hands-on exercises using the actual ASC machines.
ASC Alliance Remote WorkshopsASC Alliances are invited to work with LC to deliver workshops at their respective sites. These workshops may be comprised of lectures and hands-on exercises covering any LC ASC platform, or they may also include cross-platform training similar to the Tri-lab workshops.
Suggestions?LC is interested in what kind of training the
user community would like. Please send your suggestions for workshop and/or online
tutorial topics to email@example.com.
