From 26-28 May 2009, I will be an instructor for a 3 day workshop on "Using Virginia Tech High Performance Computing", sponsored by the Faculty Development Initiative. The class will be held in Room 3060, Torgersen Hall with Lunch Breaks in Room 1100, Torgersen Hall. The classes run from 8:30am to 4:30pm, with breaks for coffee and lunch.
Track V - Using Virginia Tech HPC
This hands-on summer track will introduce participants to the systems and resources available for High-Performance Computing at Virginia Tech. Attendees will learn skills for including computational science in their research. Topics will include shared and distributed memory systems, the VT and TeraGrid allocation process, compilers and flags for VT HPC, submitting jobs to the queuing systems, OpenMP and OpenMPI programming basics, debuggers, and visualization tools. This course will give faculty the practical skills for scaling research to VT's HPC infrastructure. Academic support staff and graduate teaching assistants may participate with faculty as a 2-person project team.
