This is a hands-on event and the attendees will need to have an account on Big Red II and bring their own laptops/compute devices to participate in the hands-on sessions.

Abstract: Big Red II is a Cray XE6/XK7 hybrid supercomputer, with both CPUs and GPUs. There are many aspects of the machine that will feel new or different to the users. This workshop will expose the Big Red II users to the system policies, the programming environment and compilers. The emphasis is on making this workshop a hands-on event and we will have sessions on compiling and running applications, using GPUs, introductions to CUDA and OpenACC, etc.
We will also have sessions on using visualization software on Big Red II and a session on high-performance filesystem best practices.
