The University of Tennessee’s National Institute for Computational Sciences (NICS) and the Joint Institute for Computational Sciences (JICS) are presenting a free “One-day Crash Course in Supercomputing” on March 8 and 15 at JICS on UT-Knoxville campus, 206 Hallam Auditorium, Claxton Education Building, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The training is designed to give students a brief introduction to the concepts of high-performance computing, as well as introduce the tools and methods for using high-performance computers to solve scientific problems.
In part one of the course, students learn to program, compile and run code in a UNIX environment. In part two, they learn to write parallel programs that can be run on a supercomputer.
Registration can be accomplished via the course web page, which also provides a link to a map showing the location of the Claxton Education Building, the course agenda and other general information. Questions may be directed to to Misha Sekachev (firstname.lastname@example.org).
