Hi all,

I wanted to bring to your attention the following series of tutorials being
offered this summer 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 the "Matlab for High-Performance Computing" tutorial.

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/>.

> 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.
> 
> There are two brand new tutorials this semester, one on each campus.  On the
> CRC, the new tutorial is the four part "Introduction to C++ Programming".  On
> the Medical Campus, the new tutorial is the two part "Learning Perl through
> Examples".
> 
> 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. We
> can also deliver extra, or customized, tutorial sessions to your group or
> lab. Please contact us at rcs at bu.edu if you are interested.
