Virtual via Zoom

The Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF) will host a virtual Frontier Training Workshop February 15-17, 2023. This event is meant to help new Frontier users (or those intending to use Frontier) learn how to run on the system. The first day will feature presentations and a hands-on session. The last two days will feature presentations from vendors and staff. The presentations for this workshop are meant to deliver relevant information about the system (hardware, job launcher, programming methods, etc.), while the hands-on session is intended to help participants learn how to run jobs on the system. To participate in the hands-on, you must have an account on Frontier or Crusher. For more details and to register see:
