XSEDE HPC Workshop: Summer Bootcamp
June 16-19, 2015

XSEDE, along with the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center and the National Center for Supercomputing Applications at the University of Illinois will be presenting a Hybrid Computing workshop.

This 4 day event will include MPI, OpenMP, OpenACC and accelerators and run June 16-19. We will conclude with a special hybrid exercise contest that will challenge the students to apply their skills over the following 3 weeks and be awarded the Second Annual XSEDE Summer Boot Camp Championship Trophy.

Due to demand, this workshop will be telecast to several satellite sites. This workshop is NOT available via a webcast.
