Apr 23 2014 - 2:00pm - 4:00pm @ Visualization Portal (5628 Math Sciences)

This session is appropriate for entry-level and mid-level cluster users.


Apr 25 2014 - 10:30am - 12:30pm @ Visualization Portal (5628 Math Sciences)

This talk presents data from several collaborative efforts targeting major societal challenges: the Biomarkers Consortium at FNIH advancing personalized medicine; EarthCube, led by NSF creating a cyberinfrastructure for the geosciences; and Aircraft Noise and Emissions, contributing to the Next Generation Air Transportation System on environmental matters.


Apr 29 2014 - 2:00pm - 4:00pm @ Visualization Portal (5628 Math Sciences)

The objective of this introductory class is to give an introduction to CUDA. This session will be of particular interest to those who want to develop computational codes or port existing codes that may use GPUs as compute engine.


Apr 30 2014 - 2:00am - 4:00pm @ Visualization Portal (5628 Math Sciences)

This session introduces basic parallel computing concepts and OpenMP, a widely used application programming interface (API) for shared-memory parallel programming.


May 7 2014 - 10:00am - 12:00pm @ Visualization Portal (5628 Math Sciences)

In order to use OpenStack cloud computing resource users need to have access to either publicly available images or custom made images. In this workshop you will learn how to create your own virtual images and modify them using the standard tools that are available in any Linux distribution. 


May 7 2014 - 2:00pm - 4:00pm @ Visualization Portal (5628 Math Sciences)

This session introduces MPI, a widely used application programming interface (API) for distributed-memory parallel programming. This session will be of particular interest to those who want to develop computational codes in a cluster environment.


May 8 2014 - 2:00pm - 4:00pm @ Visualization Portal (5628 Math Sciences)

A version control system is a software that records changes to a file or a set of files over time so that one can recall specific revisions later. This has proven very useful in day-to-day scientific workflows, such as code development and paper writings. Such a system can also faciliate collaboration without requiring all participants to sit in the same room or at the same time. This class will demonstrate the use of git, a powerful version control system used not only by professional code developers but also the broader scientific community. Popular web-based hosting services will also be discussed.
