What is high performance computing (HPC) and what is its impact on scientific advancements? What are ways to gain exposure to HPC? What opportunities can launch you into an HPC career? Learn about HPC and the many different careers and opportunities in this field. We will share our personal experiences that ignited our interest in HPC, and discuss ways of transitioning into this field. The workshop will cover both an introduction to parallel computing in HPC and a hands-on section with a proxy application and a potential extension for building a cluster with real hardware.

Workshop Presenters:
Anh T. Quach, Deputy Software Manager and Senior Staff Member, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory
