Call for participation: RADIUSS Tutorial Series 2023

by Brendan Bouffler | on

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) and Amazon Web Services are again joining forces to provide a training opportunity for emerging HPC tools and application. RADIUSS ( Rapid Application Development via an Institutional Universal Software Stack ) is a broad suite of open-source software projects originating from LLNL. Together we’re hosting a tutorial series to give attendees hands-on experience with these cutting-edge technologies. We’re calling on you to participate in these events.

This virtual series consists of nine distinct tutorials through the month of August (two more than last year). Each tutorial focuses on a specific package from the RADIUSS suite. You’ll get hands-on experience with each project and learn more about HPC deployments on Amazon Web Services. Each event will be hosted on Amazon Web Services resources and use Amazon Web Services ParallelCluster to provide an HPC environment for you to use, and gain experience with.

LLNL has a long history of delivering some of the world’s largest supercomputers and the supporting software to effectively use them. This collaboration between LLNL and Amazon Web Services brings these projects and industry best practices to a broader community. Together we’re hoping to democratize access to next generation computational research tools and HPC resources.

How to Participate

Come join us in learning how these projects can help advance your HPC research and improve efficiency. These tutorials provide a great opportunity to learn modern techniques and tools in an adaptive cloud environment.
