Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF) will host a virtual Frontier Training Workshop August 23-25, 2023. This event is meant to help new Frontier users (or those intending to use Frontier) learn how to run on the system. The workshop will feature presentations and demonstrations from vendors and OLCF staff.

Registration information can be found by scrolling toward the bottom of this page.

f you are new to OLCF or want to do additional research, please see our training archive. You will find helpful slides, talks, and hands-on exercises from our last Frontier workshop and all the subsequent trainings there.

The target audience for this workshop is OLCF users who have recently obtained access to Frontier or who intend to run on Frontier in the future.

ALCC users are encouraged to attend.

The presentations for this workshop are meant to deliver relevant information about the system (hardware, job launcher, programming methods, etc.), while the hands-on session is intended to help participants learn how to run jobs on the system. OLCF staff and our vendor partners will be available for questions during and after their sessions.

Listed below is the tentative agenda for the workshop. Updates will be provided before the start of the event.
