Training on Parallel Programming and Cluster Computing

Date: 
Sunday, June 26, 2011 – 03:00Friday, July 1, 2011 – 11:00

Preference will be given to NSF EPSCoR Track 1 (Climate Change) and Track 2 (Cyberinfrastructure) participants from Idaho, Nevada, and New Mexico, but others are encouraged to apply.

Venue: Idaho State University (Pocatello)
Jointly presented via videoconferencing with the University of Washington (Seattle)

Includes FREE housing and FREE meals for the week (You or your institution will need to pay your travel costs to get to and from Pocatello.)

This summer tutorial workshop is being sponsored by the National Computational Science Institute (NCSI) with support from TeraGrid, Blue Waters, the SC 2011 conference’s Education Program, and the Tri-­-States EPSCoR Consortium (Idaho, Nevada and New Mexico EPSCoR).

Prerequisites:
• at least one semester of programming experience in C, C++ and/or Fortran, recently;
• at least one semester of experience with any Unix-­-like operating system (including but not limited to Linux), recently.

This tutorial workshop covers not only how to do parallel computing, but also how to teach it, and how to use parallel computing in your teaching, not only in teaching Computer Science but also in teaching domain Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines.

The tutorial workshop will require a $150 FULLY REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT.

To get your refund, you’ll need to attend the workshop EVERY SINGLE DAY, and submit the daily surveys EVERY SINGLE DAY, plus the pre-­-survey and the post-­-survey. Questions about the workshop and/or venue?
