CRC Kicks Off Spring 2021 HPC Workshop Series

HPCIf you have been wondering how you can take advantage of the raw processing power of SMU’s ManeFrame II, you’ll have several chances this spring. The Center for Scientific Computation is offering several “hands-on” training sessions this semester.

The Spring 2021 Center for Research Computing Workshop Series will provide a hands-on experience that will guide researchers from the basics of using SMU’s supercomputing resources to advanced parallelization and application-specific usage. The topics cover information useful for the campus community to quickly begin to use the advanced compute capabilities provided with the cluster. New users are encouraged to take advantage of the introductory “ManeFrame II (M2) Introduction” workshop that will be given once monthly during the semester.

The workshops are held Thursdays, 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. via Zoom. Please register for the workshops in advance at
