The National Institute for Computational Sciences will offer on March 25 "A Crash Course in Supercomputing," the first in a series of three distinct one-day workshops to enhance the skills of students and researchers in various areas in the wide field of high-performance computing (HPC). The in-person workshop is free of charge and will be held at the Min H. Kao Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Building on the campus of the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
Designed for people who are new to HPC, the workshop will introduce basic skills such as working from a Unix command line, editing and transferring files, compiling a program, and creating and submitting job scripts. Participants will broaden their practical knowledge and experience using some of the latest in HPC hardware and software.
Registration for the workshop will be through the National Science Foundation's XSEDE (Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment) training system, which will require a quick-and-easy XSEDE portal registration if the participant is not already in the system. After logging in to their XSEDE portal accounts, participants can register for the workshops or access the Course Calendar by way of the Training link on the XSEDE portal site navigation bar.
