For the second year, Argonne is organizing a two-week program on extreme scale computing. This year the program will be held on August 3-15, 2014 in the Chicago area. This is a unique program that brings together experts on tools and techniques in extreme-scale computing to give students an understanding of how things really work on big systems and for complex science codes. Rob Latham and I have organized one day of discussion around data, with our colleagues Avery Ching of Facebook, Quincey Koziol of the HDF Group, and Steve Tuecke of the University of Chicago.
The program is free, and domestic airfare, meals, and lodging are provided. Prospective students should apply here. Deadline is March 31st!
