Argonne Training Program on Extreme-Scale Computing (ATPESC 2019) Call for Applications Open

January 11, 2019

Jan. 11 — Computational scientists now have the opportunity to apply for the upcoming Argonne Training Program on Extreme-Scale Computing (ATPESC), to take place from July 28-August 9, 2019.

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.

This 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 fills many gaps that exist in the training computational scientists typically receive through formal education or other shorter courses.

The ATPESC 2019 program will again be held in the west suburban Chicago area. Instructions for applying to the program can be found at extremecomputingtraining.anl.gov and the deadline for applicant submissions is Monday, March 4, 2019.

Program Curriculum

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

  • Computer architectures and predicted evolution
  • Programming methodologies effective across a variety of today’s supercomputers and that are expected to be applicable to exascale systems
  • Data-intensive computing and I/O
  • Numerical algorithms and mathematical software
  • Performance measurement and debugging tools
  • Approaches to software productivity for HPC systems
  • Data analysis and visualization
  • Machine Learning and Data Science

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.

ATPESC is funded by the Exascale Computing Project, a collaborative effort of the DOE Office of Science’s Advanced Scientific Computing Research Program and the National Nuclear Security Administration.
