Student Tutorial: Introduction to Topics in High-Performance Computing
    Monday July 16, 2012 8:00am - 5:00pm @ Exchange, 11th Floor

    ABSTRACT: This tutorial will provide an introduction to the basic ideas and key technologies that comprise high-performance computing today. Although the sessions are targeted toward students, any researcher new to the field of high-performance scientific computing could benefit from this introduction. No previous HPC experience is required. Although there are no strict requirements, a laptop with a command line terminal program will be helpful in following along with the examples. The topics covered in this morning session will be an introduction to Linux, which will introduce students to the command line interface and explore some useful command line tools; an introduction to high-performance computing, which will focus on clusters and how they are used in scientific computing; and an introduction to high-performance file systems, which will detail the different types of storage available in HPC and explore best practices for data movement and curation.
