WEBINAR: Scientific Visualization

This Blue Waters Webinar series focuses on individual tools and capabilities for visualizing data and information.

2017 Midwest Big Data Summer School for Early Career Researchers

This summer school is designed as a one week, intensive curriculum aimed at early career researchers to get them started in data-driven research.

Argonne Training Program on Extreme-Scale Computing (ATPESC)

ATPESC provides doctoral students, postdocs, and computational scientists 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 fills many gaps that exist in the training computational scientists typically receive through formal education or shorter courses. There are no fees to participate. Domestic airfare, meals, and lodging are provided.

SDSC High Performance Computing Summer Institute

The Summer Institute provides attendees with an overview of topics in High Performance Computing and Data Science to accelerate their learning process through highly interactive classes with hands-on tutorials on the Comet Supercomputer.  The program is aimed at researchers in academia and industry, especially in domains not traditionally engaged in supercomputing. Participants only need to have basic programming experience and should be comfortable working in a Linux environment.

EDAMAME 2017: Explorations in Data Analyses for Metagenomic Advances in Microbial Ecology

EDAMAME is an intensive, hands-on course in microbial metagenome analyses, covering workflows from raw sequence analysis through to multivariate statistics and ecological interpretation.

Introduction to Linux

Learn how to navigate the UNIX file system and write a basic shell script as a prerequisite for submitting computational jobs on the HPCC.

Introduction to HPCC

This is a hands-on introductory workshop on using MSU’s High Performance Computing Center (HPCC).
