September 26 – 27, 2013

Join us for a free two-day, regional, Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) workshop hosted by Florida A&M University and Florida State University at the FAMU – FSU College of Engineering. Open to all faculty, researchers, and students interested in learning how to incorporate modeling and simulation, advanced data analysis and visualization, and high-performance computing into their teaching and research. The workshop will provide an overview of computational, data analysis, visualization, and data storage resources available through the FSU Research Computing Center (RCC), Sunshine State Education and Research Computing Alliance (SSERCA), and XSEDE. There will be hands-on training sessions on topics such as parallel programming, scientific visualization, and simulation and modeling tools for the classroom using FSU RCC and XSEDE resources.

Sample workshop topics include:

  • Computational Thinking and Adding Computational Science to your Curriculum.
  • Introduction to Scientific Visualization using VisIt
  • Research Data Management
  • Introduction to Linux/Unix basics
  • FORTRAN and C Programming
  • Introduction to Parallel Programming
  • OpenACC GPU Programming
  • Optimizing Code for the Intel XEON Phi

Register at by August 23rd 2013.
