NERSCPowering Scientific Discovery for 50 Years

NERSC Users Group (NUG)

The NERSC Users’ Group, NUG, welcomes participation from all NERSC users. NUG provides advice and feedback to NERSC on the current state and future delivery of NERSC resources and services. NUG promotes the effective use of the high performance computing facilities at NERSC by sharing information about experiences in using the facility, suggesting new research and technology directions in scientific computing, and voicing user concerns.

NUG members converse with NERSC and DOE through monthly teleconferences, NUG email lists, and yearly face-to-face meetings.

NERSC holds annual face-to-face meetings.

Fortran Users of NERSC (FUN) Group

The Fortran Users of NERSC (FUN) Group welcomes all NERSC users making use of or interested in the Fortran programming language. Whether you're actively writing Fortran code, or just running programs written in Fortran, the FUN Group's goal is to make Fortran users more productive. We host a monthly "office hours" meeting to discuss issues and learn about new tools, techniques and language enhancements. We also occasionally provide Fortran specific training sessions.If you're on the NERSC User… Read More »
