Additional Videos

  • High-Performance Computing (HPC)
    • Introduction to HPC covers motivation for HPC, hardware concepts and architectures.
    • Parallel Programming Concepts introduces parallel programming concepts: process and threads, the role of the operating system, shared memory, distributed memory, and hybrid approaches.
    • Future Of HPC provides a brief overview of the future of HPC and the challenges introduce for HPC users.
  • Slurm and Batch Scripting
    • XSEDE tutorial for getting started using XSEDE Super-computing resources.
    • XSEDE New User Training. This video provides an overview of what XSEDE has to offer and how you can start your XSEDE project allocation. Also, this video provides useful information such as user guide, connect to a remote resource, data transfer, and run computational jobs. Finally, this video discusses XSEDE allocation policy.


Past webinars:

Matlab Campus License — What does this mean for you? — June 14th, 1-2:30p, Product list and recorded webinar, slides are still forthcoming

CIA webinars/workshops:
