Join us on March 31 – April 1, 2014 for a free two-day in-person regional XSEDE workshop hosted by Arizona State University. Open to all faculty, researchers, and students in all disciplines including Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences (HASS), interested in learning how to incorporate analytics, modeling and simulation, advanced data analysis and visualization, and high performance computing into their teaching and research. The workshop will provide an overview of computational, data analysis, visualization, and data storage resources available at ASU Advanced Computing Center (A2C2), U of A Research Computing Center and XSEDE. There will be hands-on training sessions on topics such as parallel programming, scientific visualization, and simulation and modeling tools for the classroom.
A2C2 provides transformative advanced computing solutions, in a cost-effective manner, to support the University’s mission and goals as they apply to research, education, and public service.
UA Research Computing provides HPC, HTC, Storage, Data Center Co-Location, Visualization, and Statistical consulting resources and support to the University of Arizona research community.
XSEDE is a virtual organization that provides a dynamic distributed infrastructure, support services, and technical expertise that enable researchers, engineers, and scholars to address the most important and challenging problems facing the nation and world.
Researchers use computers in their work every day, but often the problems they are trying to solve are so big that one computer simply cannot handle the task. By harnessing the power of thousands of computers that are communicating with each other simultaneously, a big problem can be divided and conquered. Sounds simple enough, but coordinating all of these computers requires a special kind of expertise. Members of the community are invited to come learn more about high performance computing via an interactive tour of the ASU Advanced Computing Center’s facilities. Through this event, you will have the opportunity to walk into a modern supercomputer data center and explore some of the areas researchers are investigating with this powerful tool.
In addition, this year we will feature members of our ASU Sun Devils Cluster Challenge Team showing off and demonstrating the unique cluster that they built for the Supercomputing 2013 conference. Our team entered the “commodity track” at SC13, where spending is limited to $2,500 retail price to build a complete cluster with a total energy draw that cannot exceed 15 amps. Their cluster won first place for the lowest cost per FLOP award (i.e., the greenest computing) at $4.96 per gigaFLOP. Tours will run every 30 minutes starting at 4 p.m. and with last tour starting at 8:30 p.m. All are welcome to attend!
On Tuesday, March 12, 2013, A2C2 and Intel will co-sponsor an Advanced Computing training event for members of the A2C2 user community and the public – all are welcome to attend!
Highlights of the event will include an introductory discussion on technology directions being pursued by Intel, brief presentations by local ASU researchers, and advanced computing sessions for new and experienced users of A2C2′s resources facilitated by Intel and local HPC experts. The training event will close with a Q&A opportunity for A2C2 users.
In addition, a senior level engineer from Intel will be present to recruit upcoming ASU graduates with skills in high performance computing throughout the event. Intel Corporation is developing compute and fabric products for Exascale class HPC systems. The Intel Xeon Phi Product Family brings breakthrough parallel computing performance to scientific applications. In addition, Intel is also developing new, innovative HPC fabrics to deliver unprecedent high bandwidth/low latency communication capabilities for Exascale systems. show more
The Fabric Development Organization (FDO) within Intel Corporations Technical Computing Group is hiring multiple full time positions in the areas of HW design, validation, prototyping, SW development, performance analysis and modeling. The selected candidates will help FDO develop a state-of-the-art fabric technology for Exascale class scientific applications. We invite BS/MS/PhD students in the areas of Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering or Computer Science to apply at the A2C2 + Intel Computing Workshop.
