User Meetings

Users are invited to attend the Compute Policy Meeting held every Friday at 10AM in Frey 307.

In addition, there are periodic Users' Meetings held to present new information about the systems and to allow users to ask questions.

3rd Annual High Performance Computing Week

LSU Information Technology Services, LSU Center for Computation & Technology and Louisiana Optical Network Initiative (LONI) are pleased to announce the 3rd Annual High Performance Computing (HPC) Week from June 2nd through June 6th, 2014.

3rd Annual LONI Parallel Programming Workshop, June 2nd - June 4th in 1034 LDMC
This workshop will first introduce users to the concepts of Parallel Programming, then cover how those concepts apply to solving problems frequently encountered in numerical studies such as matrix-matrix multiplication, using various parallel programming techniques such as OpenMP and MPI. This workshop will be hands-on oriented, so attendees should have prior knowledge on C/C++ or Fortran programming. Participants who do not have experience with C/C++ or Fortran Programming must attend the HPC Weekly Trainings on C/C++ or Modern Fortran, see HPC Weekly Training for more information.

3rd Annual High Performance Computing User Symposium, June 4th - June 5th in LDMC Auditorium and Lobby
The Symposium will consists of a series of invited talks and a poster session discussing research using HPC systems. The symposium is open to all, with the hope of engendering cross-discipline communication and exchange of methods and experiences.
This is an opportunity for the user community to come together and share experiences and methods. Anyone interested in HPC is more than welcome to come by and find out how HPC systems are utilized in research at LONI member institutions.
All participants are encouraged to submit an abstract for a poster or contributed talk discussing your recent work using HPC resources, preference will be given to students and postdocs for contributed talks. Participants who are not HPC users or are prospective HPC users are encouraged to present work that can benefit from using HPC resources. This is an opportunity to meet our user community and foster collaborations.
