Summit Application Readiness Workshop
Oak Ridge National Laboratory (on-site)
March 5-9, 2018
Building 5200, Tennessee A,B,C


The Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF) will host a workshop March 5-9, 2018 with the primary objective of providing the detailed technical information and hands-on help required for select application teams to meet the scalability and performance metrics required for Early Science proposals. It is the expectation that at the time of the workshop, Summit Phase I will be available in a configuration that will allow the teams to demonstrate these metrics using representative science runs. This will be an important milestone for the projects, and a requisite for a successful Early Science proposal. Technical representatives from the IBM/NVIDIA Center of Excellence will be delivering a few plenary presentations, but most of the time will be set aside for the extended application teams to carry out hands-on technical work on Summit.

Workshop attendance is strictly by invitation only. Please request the registration code from the project PI that was included in the invitation letter. All other questions should be directed to
