XSEDE, with the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center is presenting a Hybrid Computing workshop.

This four-day event will include MPI, OpenMP, OpenACC and accelerators and run June 14-17. The workshop concludes with a contest that will challenge the students to apply their skills over the following three weeks and compete for the Third Annual XSEDE Summer Boot Camp Championship Trophy.

Due to demand, this workshop will be telecast to several satellite sites including Lehigh University and is NOT available via a webcast.
Where: CITL Classroom (EWFM 379)

Special Instructions: Attendees should bring a laptop as the CITL Classroom is not a computer lab. Attendees should have programming background in C, C++ or Fortran. Experience with command line interface in *nix is required.

XSEDE, the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment, is the most advanced, powerful, and robust collection of integrated digital resources and services in the world. It is a single virtual system that scientists and researchers can use to interactively share computing resources, data, and expertise. XSEDE integrates the resources and services, makes them easier to use, and helps more people use them.
