MEETINGS & WORKSHOPS
SUMMIT TRAINING WORKSHOP (DEC 3-6)
NOTE: Registration for in-person attendance is now closed to foreign nationals, but foreign nationals can still register for remote participation.
On December 3-6, 2018, the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF) will host a Summit Training Workshop at the Crowne Plaza hotel in downtown Knoxville, TN. This event is meant to help new Summit users (or those intending to use Summit) get up and running on the system. Each day will consist of presentations in the morning followed by hands-on sessions in the afternoons. The presentations are meant to deliver relevant information about the system, while the hands-on sessions are intended to help participants get their own codes running on Summit. OLCF staff and our vendor partners will be available to help during the hands-on sessions. For more information or to register, visit the event page.

The next HPC Best Practices Webinar, “Introduction to Software Licensing”, will be held from 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM on Wednesday, December 5th. Participation in the webinar is free but registration registration is required. For more information or to register, visit the event page.
