Scaling To Petascale Institute

Argonne National Laboratory

Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF), the Blue Waters project at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA), National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC), Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF), and the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) are organizing a free, week-long "Scaling to Petascale" Institute. The goal is to prepare participants to scale simulations and data analytics programs to petascale-class computing systems in support of computational and data-enabled discovery for all fields of study.

Organizers are working to engage a large national audience. This will be accomplished by streaming the sessions to a number of collaborating organizations using full-duplex audio/video connections. Sessions will be also webcast on YouTube live, although with a lower level of support for the participants. Participants must register to attend one of the host sites or to watch the sessions on YouTube. Recordings of the presentations will be made publicly available after the institute is completed.

Registration instructions can be found here:

Please note: For people registering to attend the Argonne site, please note the registration date for non-US citizens will end on June 3 (to allow time for processing gate passes for entry); US citizens and Argonne employees may register until Wednesday, June 21.
