Livermore Computing Workshop Announcement

Workshop Title: Using LLNL's Supercomputers

Dates: Jul 15-19, 2013
Description: This 4+ day workshop covers the "getting started" basics for using Livermore Computing's (LC) High Performance Computing (HPC) systems. Topics include an introduction to parallel programming, LC HPC resources and how to use them, LC's HPC Linux clusters, Moab batch system, introductory parallel programming with MPI, POSIX Threads and OpenMP, and the TotalView debugger. Since attendees will have different interests, and seating is limited, the workshop topics are separated into different sessions. Most sessions have an associated hands-on exercise using one of LC's HPC clusters.
Location: Laboratory Training Center 2, Trailer 1889 (near the West Gate Badge Office). Directions and contact information are available HERE.
Fee: No cost
Level/Prerequisites: All sessions are presented at an introductory level. A basic understanding of programming with C or Fortran is an essential prerequisite.
Registration: See the "Registration" section below.
