CCL Workshop on Scalable Scientific Computing 2016

October 19-20th, 2016 at the University of Notre Dame
Room 200, McKenna Hall Conference Center

Workshop Overview

The 2016 CCL Workshop on Scalable Computing will be held October 19-20th on the campus of the University of Notre Dame. Here, you can learn about accelerating scientific computing by scaling up to thousands of machines in clusters, clouds, and grids. You can take tutorials on CCL software for scalable computing, learn how researchers in physics, bioinformatics, and molecular dynamics are using these tools at scale, and help to guide our future research and development.

The workshop is targeted to researchers, students, and faculty involved in both computer system design as well as scientific computing. Students are especially invited to attend the Thursday morning tutorial sessions. Bring your computing challenges for discussion and collaboration at the workshop.

We look forward to seeing you at the beautiful Notre Dame campus this fall!


Registration is now closed.
