Summit Training Workshop (February 2019)
Summit Training Workshop
Oak Ridge National Laboratory (on-site)
Building 5100, RM 128 (JICS Auditorium)
February 11-13, 2019
8:00 AM – 5:00 PM (ET)
The Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF) will host a Summit Training Workshop on February 11-13, 2019. This event is meant to help new Summit users (or those intending to use Summit) get up and running on the system. There will be a combination of presentations and hands-on sessions (see below).
Who Should Attend?
The target audience for this workshop are OLCF users who have recently obtained access to Summit or those who intend to run on Summit in the future.
During the Workshop
Each day will consist of presentations in the morning followed by hands-on sessions in the afternoons (see “Agenda” tab below). The presentations are meant to deliver relevant information about the system (hardware, job launcher, programming methods, etc.), while the hands-on sessions are intended to help participants get their own codes running on Summit (Ascent). OLCF staff and our vendor partners will be available to help during the hands-on sessions.
Please note that we will be using the Ascent system for this workshop (unless you already have Summit access). Ascent is a stand-alone system consisting of 16 nodes identical to Summit’s nodes. So for those participants using Ascent, the focus should be to get your application running on the system, but not scaling up to large node counts.
Deadlines for Non-Badged Attendees to Register for In-Person Attendance
Non-Badged US citizens must register for in-person attendance by February 4, 2019.

NOTES about lodging:
- You will want to arrive Sunday, February 10 since we will be starting at 8:00 AM ET Monday morning.
NOTES about transportation:
- Knoxville is served by the McGhee Tyson Airport, which is located about 20-25 minutes from West Knoxville and about 30-35 minutes from Oak Ridge (depending on traffic). You will likely want to rent (or share) a car to get around, and also because Uber/Lyft will not be able to enter the laboratory.
For out-of-town participants, you can make a reservation to stay at the ORNL Guest House, or there are a number of nice hotels in the area. You can choose to stay in either Oak Ridge or West Knoxville. Staying in Oak Ridge will be a bit closer to the lab, but there will be more to do (after hours) in West Knoxville. A few hotels from each area are listed below, but there are many to choose from:
|Oak Ridge Hotels||West Knoxville Hotels|
|Hampton Inn||Fairfield Inn & Suites|
|Comfort Inn||Holiday Inn Express & Suites|
