DescriptionIn the day of scientific computing solving societal problems in health care, bioinformatics, drug design, and rocket science, the core technique that is common among all of these seemingly unrelated domains is discoveries through computational simulations. And the power pack behind these simulations is High Performance Computing (HPC). For every computational domain, there is an increasing need for developing competency in leveraging the HPC resources for graduate and undergraduate research, working in interdisciplinary teams as a CS professional facilitating domain science (biology, physics). The goals of this workshop are to (1) inform students from a diverse computing background how HPC enables discoveries, (2) provide specific guidance about what students can do to prepare themselves for a successful career in HPC, and (3) inform students of job opportunities in HPC.
