NERSCPowering Scientific Discovery for 50 Years

Argonne Training Program on Extreme-Scale Computing (ATPESC), Jul-Aug 2024

July 28, 2024


The annual Argonne Training Program on Extreme-Scale Computing (ATPESC) provides intensive, two-week training on the key skills, approaches, and tools to design, implement, and execute computational science and engineering applications on current high-end computing systems and the leadership-class computing systems of the future.  ATPESC2024 will be held at the Q Center in St. Charles, IL (Chicago area), from July 28 to August 9.

The core of the program will focus on programming methodologies that are effective across a variety of supercomputers and that are expected to be applicable to exascale systems. Additional topics to be covered include computer architectures, mathematical models and numerical algorithms, approaches to building community codes for HPC systems, and methodologies and tools relevant to Big Data applications. 

Program Curriculum

Renowned scientists and leading HPC experts will serve as lecturers and guide the hands-on training sessions. ATPESC participants will have access to DOE’s leadership-class systems at the ALCF, OLCF, and NERSC. The core curriculum will cover:

  • Computer architectures
  • Numerical algorithms and mathematical software
  • Software productivity and sustainability
  • Data analysis, visualization, I/O, and methodologies for big data applications
  • Performance measurement and debugging tools
  • Machine learning and data science
