The OLCF will host a SUMMITDEV workshop January 10-13, 2017 at Oak Ridge National Laboratory.  The purpose of the workshop is to introduce OLCF staff and OLCF CAAR teams to the new Summit Early Access development platform and will cover both hardware and software aspects of the new system.

The event agenda will consist of a mixture of lectures in the morning paired with hands-on activities in the afternoons. Attendees will work on their own code base during the hands-on sessions.  The workshop will be facilitated by the IBM/NVIDIA Center of Excellence. Please note that this event is strictly by invitation only.
