Events

  • 1/10/20 - 3/13/20HPC User Training Series SDSC supports the training of its user community, including students, in all aspects of High-performance computing (HPC). The goal of the training is to prepare new HPC users to run jobs on HPC systems. The scope of the training effort includes several skill development activities, including: HPC architectures, software, and admin skills; Jupyter Notebooks; Basics of parallel programming; Performance characterization of the cluster; Visualization and analysis of big data sets; and other topics. Participants will be given accounts on Comet, the SDSC Supercomputer, and the opportunity to complete several basic assignments. Students who successfully complete the HPC Training program will receive an SDSC Certificate of Completion in HPC Training and UCSD Co-Curricular Record Credit (for students). SDSC Synthesis Center (E-B143)
  • 2/20/20CUDA-Python and RAPIDS for blazing fast scientific computingWe will introduce Numba and RAPIDS for GPU programming in Python. Numba allows us to write just-in-time compiled CUDA code in Python, giving us easy access to the power of GPUs from a powerful high-level language. RAPIDS is a suite of tools with a Python interface for machine learning and dataframe operations. Together, Numba and RAPIDS represent a potent set of tools for rapid prototyping, development, and analysis for scientific computing. We will cover the basics of each library and go over simple examples to get users started. Finally, we will briefly highlight several other relevant libraries for GPU programming. This webinar will use the Zoom conferencing system. You should receive an email with connection details a few days prior to the event. Webinar
  • 2/20/20Parallel and GPU Computing with MATLABIn this session you will learn how to solve and accelerate computationally and data-intensive problems that are becoming common in the areas of machine learning and deep learning using multicore processors, GPUs, and computer clusters.  SDSC Auditorium E-B212
  • 2/25/20 - 2/27/20GO FAIR Train-the-Trainer WorkshopA 2 ½ day workshop will be held early next year at Georgia Tech. In collaboration with the South Big Data Hub, we will provide advanced GO FAIR training aimed at developing a pool of trainers based in the U.S. Topics include adding value to data with semantic tools, teaching FAIR techniques, uptake of FAIR awareness and practices, and more.Atlanta, GA
  • 2/27/20 Technology Forum Breakfast: Accelerating AI and Machine Learning Applications with NEC SX-Aurora TSUBASA AI Platform Join us for breakfast and hear NEC representatives discuss the SX-Aurora technology and how it can accelerate statistical machine learning applications using Spark and Scikit and AI techniques such as Deep Learning using TensorFlow.  Synthesis Center EB143
  • 3/3/20#MeTooSTEM: A Mission to End Sexual Harassment in STEMDr. BethAnn McLaughlin and Dr. Teresa Swanson of the MeTooSTEM nonprofit organization will give a public talk about sexual harassment in STEM.  Students, faculty, staff and the general public are invited to attend. Talk is 2:00pm - 3:00pm followed by safe space session from 3:30pm to 6:00pm where survivors can talk to the MeTooSTEM team.SDSC Auditorium E-B212
  • 3/18/20Technology Forum Breakfast with AMD Save the Date!SDSC EB143
  • 4/23/20Technology Forum Breakfast: Spinning up a Virtual, World-Class Supercomputer using Cloud Computing In November 2019, SDSC researcher Frank Wuerthwein and his collaborators marshalled the resources of multiple commercial cloud computing providers to assemble a massive virtual supercomputer to solve a real world, multi-messenger astronomy computing problem.  Join us for breakfast and to hear about this achievement and what it portends for the future of supercomputing.  Synthesis Center EB143
  • 5/11/20 - 5/15/20GPU Hackathon co-hosted with NVIDIAApplication DUE: March 11!  Join SDSC, NVIDIA, NERSC and ORNL for a week of hacking!  The GPU Hackathon is designed to help scientists, researchers and developers accelerate and optimize their applications on GPUs. Domain scientists are paired with experienced GPU mentors to learn the critical accelerated and parallel computing skills needed by the scientific community. SDSC Auditorium
  • 6/22/20 - 8/14/20Summer Research Experience for High School Students (REHS) ProgramAPPLY: Applications period 2/15 - 3/15!  The SDSC REHS program goes beyond the standard REU (Research Experience for Undergraduates) program, on which it is based, by integrating students into existing multidisciplinary research teams and thereby into the national computational science effort, while still in high school.  The program is designed to encourage students from diverse backgrounds and interests to become the next generation of computational scientists. SDSC
  • 7/26/20 - 7/30/20PEARC20: Call for Participation CfP Extended - see site for due dates!  PEARC20 will explore the current practice and experience in advanced research computing including modeling, simulation, and data-intensive computing. This yearʻs theme, “Catch the Wave,” embodies the spirit of the community’s drive to stay on pace and in front of the new waves in technology, analytics, and a globally connected and diverse workforce. Scientific discovery and innovation require a robust, innovative, and resilient cyberinfrastructure to support the critical research required to address world challenges in climate change, population, health, energy, and environment.Portland, OR
  • 8/3/20 - 8/7/20SDSC's Annual High Performance Computing and Data Science Summer InstituteApplication deadline: May 3!  This annual week-long workshop focuses on a broad spectrum of introductory-to-intermediate topics in High-Performance Computing (HPC) and Data Science. The Institute welcomes researchers from academia and industry, especially in domains not traditionally engaged in supercomputing, or who have problems that cannot typically be solved using local computing resources. This year’s Summer Institute continues SDSC’s strategy of bringing HPC to the ”long tail of science”, i.e. providing resources to a larger number of modest-sized computational research projects that represent, in aggregate, a tremendous amount of scientific research and discovery.  SDSC Auditorium
