Faculty Camp 2005, August 1 - 19

The three-week Faculty Camp, beginning Monday, August 1, encompasses the necessary survival skills for High Performance Computing (HPC). Topics include, but are not limited to, batch processing, scripting, parallel programming concepts and techniques, and basic familiarization with various visualization packages.

A series of seminars and hands-on experiences, presented by ARSC staff, UAF/ARSC Joint Faculty and current users, provide participants with assistance and expertise while they focus on independent work and self-guided study for individual projects. ARSC is pleased to include several talks from the staff of the IBM Advanced Computing Technology Center which will focus on optimization of applications on the ARSC IBM systems.

The majority of the talks are scheduled to take place in the WRRB first floor classroom (009), but the first floor conference room (010) will be the 'home base' for faculty camp activites. Each day in 010, coffee and juice will be available at 9:00 AM, while snacks and sodas will be provided at 1:00 PM. With few exceptions, talks are scheduled from 10am-Noon and 2:00-4:00pm each day except the last Thursday, which will remain open.

Below is the current schedule of events for Faculty Camp 2005. If you are interested in attending a talk as a non-camper, please contact Tom Logan ( logan@arsc.edu ) or 907-450-8624.
