Argonne Training Program on Extreme-Scale Computing (ATPESC) 2017

Computational scientists had the opportunity to apply for the Argonne Training Program on Extreme-Scale Computing (ATPESC) 2017, which took place July 30 to August 11, 2017 near Chicago, IL.

With the challenges posed by the architecture and software environments of today’s most powerful supercomputers, and even greater complexity on the horizon from next-generation and exascale systems, there is a critical need for specialized, in-depth training for the computational scientists poised to facilitate breakthrough science and engineering using these amazing resources.

This program provided intensive hands-on training on the key skills, approaches and tools to design, implement, and execute computational science and engineering applications on current supercomputers and the HPC systems of the future. As a bridge to that future, this two-week program filled many gaps that exist in the training computational scientists typically receive through formal education or shorter courses.

The agenda, presentation, and videos from the ATPESC 2017 are now available on the ATPESC website.  You will find more than 60 hours of training in 71 videos organized by subsections:  Introductions, Dinner Talks, and Track 1-7.

The call for participation in the ATPESC 2018 will be opening in December, 2017.  For more information, contact

ATPESC is funded by the Exascale Computing Project, a collaborative effort of the DOE Office of Science’s Advanced Scientific Computing Research Program and the National Nuclear Security Administration.
