An Intro to LabArchives Digital Research Notebook Workshop

Ideal for replacement of paper notebooks, a LabArchives Digital Notebook can be used to document ideas, notes, research, experiments, and procedures. They are designed for intuitive use, ease of search, copying and versioning. They support collaboration with many users and includes access controls. In this workshop you will be provided an overview of the LabArchives Digital Research Notebooks. For new users that need help with the basics or current users that need a refresher on how to create notebooks, add and manage your data, notebook access controls, collaboration tools, and export options. We will go over the feature tools and show you the benefits of moving from a paper to a Digital Notebook.

XSEDE HPC Workshop: MPI

XSEDE along with the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center is pleased to present a two-day MPI workshop.

This workshop is intended to give C and Fortran programmers a hands-on introduction to MPI programming. Both days are compact, to accommodate multiple time zones, but packed with useful information and lab exercises. Attendees will leave with a working knowledge of how to write scalable codes using MPI – the standard programming tool of scalable parallel computing.

This workshop will be remote to desktop only due to the COVID-19 pandemic. When the registration has filled, there will be no more students added due to our current limits. Please do not ask to be added to the workshop after the registration period has ended.
