ALCF Getting Started Videoconferences



Attend an ALCF Getting Started videoconference to learn everything you need to know to get your project up and running on ALCF systems.

Led by ALCF staff, these introductory videoconferences will guide users through code building and job submissions, and provide tips for minimizing wait times and effectively backing up data. They are open to both new and current users.

For your convenience, the videoconferences are offered multiple times. To maximize your experience, we limit each session to a handful of participants. Virtual videoconference "seats" are reserved on a first-come, first-served basis--register today for your preferred date and time.
