TUTORIAL: Selecting and Using XSEDE Resources for Maximum Productivity
    Monday July 16, 2012 8:00am - 12:00pm @ Holabird Room, 8th Floor

    TUTORIAL: Selecting and Using XSEDE Resources for Maximum Productivity

    ABSTRACT: The XSEDE program provides a wide variety of resources to the research and academic community. Due to the varied nature of these resources, it is not always easy or even clear which resources to select for a project. This tutorial will provide an overview of the requirements that need to be determined and how to find resources that "match" these requirements. It also will cover some basic information about the computational and data resources available to the user community, as well as the tools and information provided to assist in the selection of these resources. Some examples of "matching users to resources" will be provided, as well as information on the various methods of accessing the resources. Tips on making the most of the resources selected also will be covered. Example serial and parallel code and access to several resources for a "hands-on" workshop will be provided in the second half of the tutorial. Some of the code examples will highlight the utilization of the "special" Condor Pool and OSG resources, as well as a few others.

    REQUIRES: Laptop, GSISSH, Web browser

    PREREQUISITES: XSEDE ID with access to resource

TUTORIAL: Developing Science Gateways
    Monday July 16, 2012 1:00pm - 5:00pm @ Holabird Room, 8th Floor

    TUTORIAL: Developing Science Gateways using Apache Airavata API

    ABSTRACT: The tutorial will be based on Apache Airavata, a software toolkit to build science gateways. Airavata provides features to compose, manage, execute, and monitor small to large-scale applications and workflows on computational resources ranging from local clusters to national grids such as XSEDE and computing clouds such as Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud. Airavata builds on general concepts of service-oriented computing, distributed messaging, workflow composition, and orchestration. The Airavata suite includes tools for workflow composition and monitoring. The standout feature of the workflow engine allows it to interpret at each step, providing dynamic interactive capabilities. The core capabilities provide the ability to wrap command line-driven science applications and make them into robust, network-accessible services. The Airavata Registry provides persistent data store. The gateway building toolkit also includes a publish/subscribe-based messaging system with features to incorporate clients behind firewalls and overcome network glitches.

    REQUIRES: SSH, SVN, Web browser

    PREREQUISITES: Grid computing, portal development experience

XSEDE Student Engagement: Summer Immersion Experiences
    Tuesday July 17, 2012 10:00am - 12:00pm @ Holabird Room, 8th Floor

    The fifteen students in the first XSEDE Summer Immersion program will present brief summaries of the projects they are working on with XSEDE staff and researchers. We are looking for input from the students, supervisors, and XSEDE community on the projects and the program, and recommendations for improvements. This session is open to the entire conference. Come by and see what the students are working on!
