Polar High Performance Computing Workshop and Hackathon

Event Type: Conferences and Workshops

When: 1 August 2017 to 4 August 2017

Where: Stony Brook, New York

More information: 


The Polar Research Coordination Network (RCN) announces the 2nd High Performance Computing (HPC) Polar Workshop and Hackathon. This four-day polar science-centric training and hackathon will focus on utilizing high performance and distributed computing.

This workshop and hackathon is open to polar scientists who would like to increase their computing knowledge and abilities related to a specific problem during the hackathon or through general training during the workshop.

Training topics during the morning workshops include, but are not limited to, the basics of UNIX, version control, introduction to
high-performance parallel and distributed computing (HPDC), selecting a HPDC approach and platform, and publishing and sharing code.

Organizers are accepting proposals that address science questions, pose computational challenges that HPDC can address, and for which major progress is possible within the limited time frame.

The RCN will provide travel, housing, and food for attendees with accepted proposals.

There is no limit to the number of entries per individual or research group. Submit only one proposal if multiple team members will be working on the same project.

Space is limited and preference will be given to teams of two to four people.

Proposal deadline: 15 June 2017.
