1:00  PM – 5:00 PM (ET)

Artist rendering of Frontier


The Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF) will host a virtual Frontier Training Workshop February 15-17, 2023. This event is meant to help new Frontier users (or those intending to use Frontier) learn how to run on the system. The workshop will feature presentations and demonstrations from vendors and OLCF staff.

If you are new to OLCF or want to do additional research, please see our Preparing for Frontier series. You will find helpful slides, talks, and hands-on exercises that you can do on Summit or Perlmutter linked there.


Who Should Attend?

The target audience for this workshop is OLCF users who have recently obtained access to Frontier or who intend to run on Frontier in the future.


During the Workshop
The presentations for this workshop are meant to deliver relevant information about the system (hardware, job launcher, programming methods, etc.), while the hands-on session is intended to help participants learn how to run jobs on the system. OLCF staff and our vendor partners will be available for questions during and after their sessions.


All participants must register.
