CACDS in collaboration with various HPC partners offers a variety of workshops to UH faculty, staff and students on various topics related to High Performance Computing, Big Data, and so on. These workshops also highlights the current status and the future development of various high performance computing technologies. Most of the workshops offer hands-on exercises.

CACDS is pleased to be hosting XSEDE’s Summer Bootcamp from June 6-9, 2017 in PGH 200.

This 4 day event will include MPI, OpenMP, OpenACC and accelerators. This event will be presented using the Wide Area Classroom(WAC) training platform and will conclude with a special hybrid exercise contest that will challenge the students to apply their skills over the following 3 weeks and be awarded the Fourth Annual XSEDE Summer Boot Camp Championship Trophy.  In addition, an XSEDE Badge will be available to those who complete the Challenge.
