Hi all,

I wanted to bring to your attention the following series of tutorials being
offered this fall by IS&T's Research Computing group.  In particular, some
of you may be interested in the tutorials on the use of SCC, BU's Shared
Computing Cluster; or some of their other tutorials on high-performance
computing, Matlab, GPU programming, and other topics.  All tutorials are
free, and are an excellent resource for you to quickly get up to speed on
new topics.

In addition to offering these tutorials several times each year, RCS also
operates SCC, a high-performance computing cluster with thousands of
processors and hundreds of GPUs.  They also have staff available to advise
and assist you with your scientific programming needs.  All RCS services are
free to members of the BU community.  For more information, visit
<http://www.bu.edu/tech/support/research/rcs/>.
