Frontier Training Workshop
Virtual via Zoom
August 23-25, 2023, 1:00 PM – 5:00 PM EDT

The Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF) will host a virtual Frontier Training Workshop August 23-25, 2023. This event is meant to help new Frontier users (or those intending to use Frontier) learn how to run on the system. The workshop will feature presentations and demonstrations from vendors and OLCF staff. The target audience for this workshop is OLCF users who have recently obtained access to Frontier or who intend to run on Frontier in the future. ALCC users are encouraged to attend. The last day, August 25, will be a profiling and debugging tools day with representation from several of our software vendors. Even if you are a seasoned Frontier user, the profiling day may be helpful to you. See the agenda at the link below and register for the days that interest you.
