Titan Users and Developers Workshop (West Coast)

The Oak Ridge Leadership Computational Facility (OLCF) invites you to Santa Clara, CA, for the Titan Users and Developers Workshop (West Coast) being conducted on January 29-31, 2013. The goal of this three day event is to provide intense hands-on training to Titan users and developers. Topics will cover everything you need to run on Titan from basic utilization of the Oak Ridge leadership-class resources, to advanced GPGPU programming techniques.

Sessions are organized by increasing expertise from basic access and best practices, to parallelization techniques and accelerator programming models for Titan. Topics also include Parallelization and debugging techniques, Scientific Libraries, OpenACC, Cuda, OpenCL, Cuda Fortran, etc. Experts from the OLCF will also be on hand to assist you and answer your questions on high-performance computing. Attendance to all three days is highly encouraged.

On-site registration for this event is limited to 50 people, on a first-come first-serve basis. Due to recent travel restrictions, we must limit attendance to 30 DOE funded individuals. Please register early to secure a spot! If you are unable to attend this workshop, please consider attending our East Coast Training event (Feb 19-21) being held in Knoxville, TN. All training sessions are simultaneously webcast via WebEx.

The workshop will be held at Nvidia Corporate Headquarters, 2701 San Tomas Expressway, Santa Clara, CA 95050. The training will take place in building E on the South side of the building. You will pick up your badges at the registration desk. Please remember to bring photo ID and business card.
