Argonne Training Program on Extreme-Scale Computing Scheduled for August

ARGONNE, Ill., Feb. 3 — Computational scientists now have the opportunity to apply for the upcoming Argonne Training Program on Extreme-Scale Computing (ATPESC), to take place from August 3-15, 2014.

The program provides intensive hands-on training on the key skills, approaches and tools to design, implement, and execute computational science and engineering applications on current supercomputers and the HPC systems of the future. As a bridge to that future, this two-week program to be held at the Pheasant Run Resort in suburban Chicago fills the gap that exists in the training computational scientists typically receive through formal education or shorter courses.

Instructions for applying to the program can be found at extremecomputingtraining.anl.gov and the deadline for applying is March 31, 2014.

With the challenges posed by the architecture and software environments of today’s most powerful supercomputers, and even greater complexity on the horizon from next-generation and exascale systems, there is a critical need for specialized, in-depth training for the computational scientists poised to facilitate breakthrough science and engineering using these amazing resources.

Program Curriculum

Renowned scientists, HPC experts and leaders will serve as lecturers and will guide the hands-on laboratory sessions. The core curriculum will address:

  • Computer architectures and their predicted evolution
  • Programming methodologies effective across a variety of today’s supercomputers and that are expected to be applicable to exascale systems
  • Approaches for performance portability among current and future architectures
  • Numerical algorithms and mathematical software
  • Performance measurement and debugging tools
  • Data analysis, visualization, and methodologies and tools for Big Data applications
  • Approaches to building community codes for HPC systems

Eligibility and Application

Doctoral students, postdocs, and computational scientists interested in attending ATPESC can review eligibility and application details on the event website.

Cost

There are no fees to participate. Domestic airfare, meals, and lodging are provided.
