Argonne Training Program on Extreme-Scale Computing Taking Place July 28 - Aug. 9


LEMONT, Ill., April 22 — Computational scientists now have the opportunity to register for the upcoming Argonne Training Program on Extreme-Scale Computing (ATPESC), to take place from July 28 - Aug. 9.

The 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 high-end computing systems and the leadership-class computing systems of the future. As a bridge to that future, this two-week program to be held in suburban Chicago fills the gap that exists in the training computational scientists typically receive through formal education or other shorter courses.

Applications are currently being accepted for the program. Instructions for program registration can be found at http://extremecomputingtraining.anl.gov/ and the deadline for applying is May 22.

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.

Program Curriculum

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

  • Programming methodologies effective across a variety of today’s supercomputers and that are expected to be applicable to exascale systems,
  • Multiple approaches on unifying concepts and levels of abstraction that provide migration paths and performance portability among current and future architectures,
  • Computer architectures, mathematical models, and numerical algorithms,
  • Approaches to building community codes for HPC systems, and methodologies and tools relevant for big data applications.

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.
