Introduction to Leadership Computing
Friday, November 12, 2021
1:00 – 4:00 PM (ET)
Virtual Event


Leadership computing is a gateway for scientific discovery and a tool for understanding the world around us. The Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF) provides researchers from a variety of academic, government, and industrial institutions with access to world-class supercomputing capabilities and teams of expert computational scientists.

During this event, OLCF staff will give an introduction to the OLCF and our computational resources, describe what leadership computing is, and give examples of the breadth of scientific discoveries that we enable. We will also give an overview of how research teams get access to, write programs for, and run workloads on our Summit supercomputer.
