Subject: Free on-line parallel computing course, XSEDE


Graduate and undergraduate students from all disciplines who are interested
in using parallel computers efficiently and productively are invited to
register for a FREE online course sponsored by the Extreme Science and
Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE / xsede.org).


The online course is an adaptation of the class Applications of Parallel
Computers <http://www.cs.berkeley.edu/%7Edemmel/cs267_Spr12/>

taught by professor Jim Demmel at U.C. Berkeley in Spring 2012. Lecture
materials, quizzes, and programming exercises will be rolled out weekly from
Feb.  14 to May 2. For more information on the topics covered in the course,
see https://www.cac.cornell.edu/VW/APC/.


As a prerequisite, students should have some programming experience in C or
similar language. Enrollment is limited to the first 300 students and
registration will close Feb. 13. To enroll, first visit
https://portal.xsede.org/ to create an XSEDE portal account; then visit
https://portal.xsede.org/course-calendar to register for the Applications of
Parallel Computers course. Registered students will receive accounts to
access XSEDE computing resources and consulting help. Those who successfully
complete all quizzes and programming assignments will receive an XSEDE
certificate of completion.
