9th WACCPD Workshop @ SC22 Call For PapersThe Call for Papers for the 9th Workshop on Accelerator Programming Using Directives is now open! The workshop aims to showcase all aspects of accelerator programming for heterogeneous systems such as innovative high-level language or library approaches, lessons learned while using directives or other portable approaches to migrate scientific legacy code to modern systems, and compilation and runtime scheduling techniques. The paper submission deadline is August 5, 2022 AOE. For more information, see

2022 P3HPC Workshop @ SC22 Call for Papers

The 2022 International Workshop on Performance, Portability & Productivity in HPC (P3HPC) call for papers is now open! P3HPC provides a forum for researchers and developers to discuss their successes and failures in tackling the compelling problems that lie at the intersection of performance, portability and productivity (P3) and High-Performance Computing (HPC). The topic of P3 touches on many aspects of HPC software development and the workshop program is expected to reflect a wide range of experiences and perspectives, including those of compiler, language and runtime experts; applications developers, performance engineers; and domain scientists. The abstract submissions deadline is August 8, 2022 AOE and the full paper submission deadline is August 12, 2022 AOE. For more information, please see:

Preparing for Frontier Training Series
The OLCF will deliver a “Preparing for Frontier” training series over the next several months to help current OLCF users (without access to early-Frontier hardware) understand what they can start doing today on Summit to prepare their projects for Frontier. The series will include talks on Frontier’s architecture and supported programming models, hands-on tutorials showing how to use the programming models, and user-experience talks from project teams who have already ported their applications to the early-Frontier systems. The first few sessions are listed below, but please visit the main landing page for additional upcoming sessions:

– July 21, 2022: HIP for CUDA Programmers

Training on HDF5 for HPC Data Models, Analysis, & Performance

On July 27, ALCF will host a one-hour webinar entitled “Introduction to HDF5 for HPC Data Models, Analysis, and Performance.” This webinar is open to NERSC and OLCF users.

The webinar is a comprehensive overview of HDF5 for anyone who works with big data in an HPC environment. The talk consists of two parts. Part I introduces the HDF5 data model and APIs for organizing data and performing I/O. Part II focuses on HDF5 advanced features such as parallel I/O and will give an overview of various parallel HDF5 tuning techniques such as collective metadata I/O, data aggregation, async, parallel compression, and other new HDF5 features that help to utilize HPC storage to its fullest potential.

Please find more information on the ALCF event page at

AI for Science Bootcamp
August 25-26
NERSC, in collaboration with NVIDIA, will present a 2-day bootcamp designed to teach users fundamental concepts and practices in deep learning, and how to effectively apply them to scientific problems. Participants will learn how to implement the primary components of deep learning workflows, including hands-on exercises training and evaluating custom deep-learning models on scientific datasets.

For more information and to register, please see Space is limited, and active NERSC/ALCF/OLCF users will be prioritized during the registration process.
