FOR RELEASE: December 4, 2014

ITHACA, N.Y. - Two National Science Foundation-sponsored training workshops on parallel computing on the Stampede supercomputer will be offered in January to the national research community by the Cornell University Center for Advanced Computing (CAC):

  • High Performance Computing on Stampede: Introductory Topics
    January 14, 2015
    9 a.m. – 5 p.m. ET
  • High Performance Computing on Stampede: Advanced Topics
    January 15, 2015
    9 a.m. – 5 p.m. ET

Both of these workshops are in-person training on the campus of Cornell University in Ithaca, NY. There will be no webcast.

Stampede is an Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) resource located at the Texas Advanced Computing Center at The University of Texas at Austin. The system is a nearly 10 petaflops (PF) Dell Linux Cluster based on 6,400+ Dell PowerEdge server nodes, each outfitted with 2 Intel Xeon E5 (Sandy Bridge) processors and an Intel Xeon Phi Coprocessor (MIC Architecture).

The workshops will consist of lecture and labs conducted by consultants from the Cornell University Center for Advanced Computing. Lab exercises will be conducted on Stampede. CAC staff will be available during the training session to assist users in their code development efforts. There is no fee to attend. The workshop concepts will readily transfer to other high-performance computing platforms.

Additional information on the workshops is available at:
