NERSCPowering Scientific Discovery for 50 Years

E3SM Tutorial Workshop, May 7-10, 2024

May 7, 2024


Energy Exascale Earth System model (E3SM) is a state-of-the-science Earth system model development and simulation project to investigate energy-relevant science using code optimized for DOE's advanced computers.

The E3SM project, supported by the US Department of Energy's (DOE's) Biological and Environmental Research (BER) Earth and Environmental Systems Sciences Division (EESSD) and Earth System Model Development (ESMD) programs will hold its first in-person tutorial workshop at NERSC, May 7-10, 2024. The tutorial will encompass:

  • Lectures on earth system simulation and the model components of E3SM.
  • Practical sessions on running E3SM, modifying components, and analyzing data.
  • Best practices for utilizing the model and potentially contributing to its development.

This workshop is designed for new users engaged in currently funded BER's EESSD projects, and other related DOE projects. We particularly encourage participation by graduate students, post-docs, and early career staff.


This workshop will be in person at NERSC, LBNL in Berkeley, CA. Applications are due on January 31, 2024. Spaces are limited, so be sure to apply early. Acceptance notifications will be sent out by the end of February.

To apply for attendance at the workshop, please complete the application form. Feel free to share this information with anyone who may be interested.
