Registration is now open for the Scaling to Petascale Institute, which will be held June 26-30, 2017. The petascale institute is a collaboration between multiple institutions. The purpose of the institute is for people who are developing, modifying, and supporting research projects to enhance their knowledge and skills to scale software to petascale and emerging extreme-scale computing systems. Basic familiarity with Linux, programming, and MPI are recommended. The agenda includes introductory and advanced MPI, OpenMP, scaling, profiling, and debugging, GPU programming, OpenACC, Phi programming, scientific libraries, Parallel I/O, HDF5, Globus, and software engineering.

The training will be presented online, and attendees can either register to attend at a collaborating host site or view the sessions via YouTube live. A site with many potential attendees can become a collaborating host site; registration for new collaborating host sites is also open. Attendees at host sites will have access to training accounts on Blue Waters, TACC, and NERSC systems for the duration of the training.
