Research Computing is sponsoring an undergraduate research course, Extreme Scaling Programming, in Spring 2016. This online course is offered by the Blue Waters Project funded by National Science Foundation (NSF).

The course introduces students to the features of extreme scale systems and programming techniques to achieve high performance and efficiency in extreme computing environments. Lectures and assignments are offered online by Dr. William Gropp, the Director of the Parallel Computing Institute and Chief Scientist of the National Center for Supercomputing Applications at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Weekly in-person group discussions are led by local UF instructor Ying Zhang, a member of the Research Computing staff. The tentative schedule for group discussions is every Wednesday from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. (8th period) at NPB 2205 during the Spring semester.

The course is offered as UF Undergraduate Research Course EGN4912 at CISE. Interested students should visit the course page for more information, including registration details.
