[Cs-affiliates] FW: Research Computing Services Fall 2016 Tutorial Series

Hi all,

Just a note (as I’ve done before) to encourage your graduate students to learn about the significant resources available from BU’s Research Computing, in particular the Shared Computing Cluster (SCC).    There are short (2 hour) courses below that can familiarize people with the SCC.  Quoting:
"This Linux cluster has more than 6000 processors and over two petabytes of storage available for Research Computing by students and faculty on the Charles River and BUMC campuses.”

This is a terrific resource that can potentially save time (making use of parallelism) and potentially free your equipment money up for more interesting uses!

Best,
Mark

IS&T RCS Tutorials September 8, 2016 - September 29, 2016
The Research Computing Services (RCS) group, part of Boston University Information Services & Technology, will offer a series of tutorials on programming, high performance computing, and scientific visualization. These tutorials are free and open to all members of the Boston University community.
In addition to covering concepts, techniques, and tools which researchers may use in their own computing environments, these tutorials are designed to help you make effective use of the Boston University Shared Computing Cluster<http://www.bu.edu/tech/support/research/computing-resources/scc/>. We can also deliver extra, or customized, tutorial sessions to your group or lab. Please contact us at rcs at bu.edu<mailto:rcs at bu.edu> if you are interested.

You may register<http://www.bu.edu/phpbin/training/register/index.php?admingroup_id=43> for as many tutorials as you like. Registration is greatly appreciated and is accessed with your BU Kerberos password.
If you don't have a Kerberos password, or if you find that a tutorial is full, or have any other questions, please send email to rcs-tutorial at bu.edu<mailto:rcs-tutorial at bu.edu>. For most of the tutorials, the slides used by the instructor are available at http://www.bu.edu/tech/support/research/training-consulting/live-tutorials/ and are generally updated shortly before each session of a given tutorial.
Tutorial Locations and Directions
Charles River Campus (CRC) All CRC sessions will be held in MCS B27 at 111 Cummington Mall (with one exception: Introduction to Maya will be held at the CAS Computer Lab, 685 Commonwealth Avenue, room 327.) To access MCS B27, we recommend that you enter 111 Cummington Mall via the "College of Arts & Sciences - Department of Computer Science - Department of Mathematics & Statistics" entrance, and then either: take the elevator immediately on your right; or descend the stairs down the hall to your right.
BU Medical Campus (BUMC) The BUMC sessions will be held in the "L" building at 72 E Concord St using room number L1110. The "L" building is the BUMC main instructional building and the 11th floor is accessible by elevator. The tutorial room is at the end of the hall on the left.
