CCAST Advanced Research Computing Training Session (Conference/Workshop/Seminar)

CCAST is conducting a series of training sessions to introduce the basics of advanced research computing to faculty, students, researchers, and anyone who may be interested. The events, offered every other Thursday, from 2:00–3:30 p.m., will include lectures, demonstrations, and hands-on sessions where participants have opportunities to run simple and not-so-simple programs on CCAST’s high-performance computing (HPC) clusters. This training series aims to provide participants with basic knowledge to make good use of local and national HPC facilities and ultimately to advance their research capabilities. No prior knowledge of advanced computing and computer programming is needed!
The schedule for the training sessions is as follows:

September 13: Introduction to HPC, HPC resources at NDSU (and elsewhere)

September 27: Basics of Linux environment, Message-Passing Interface (MPI)

October 11: Parallel computing using MPI, graphical representation of MPI processes

October 25: Efficient use of HPC resources: Parallel scaling performance

November 8: Linux virtualization, application containers, and Singularity
