February 2-6, 2004
NCSA at the University of Illinois
Registration deadline is January 16, 2004.
Register Now --
The Linux Clusters Institute (LCI) brings leading edge technology to its workshop attendees. At selected LCI workshops, special topics are introduced. Visualization using Linux and Linux Clusters will be covered during the workshop at NCSA. The visualization session on Friday, January 6th, will include the advantages of visualization, equipment and software requirements, how to set up a lab, and software installation. Also discussed will be problems encountered with visualization, what to look for and corrective measures.
LCI’s highly successful workshops are intensive, hands-on sessions for computational scientists, engineers, researchers, analysts, and cluster system administrators. LCI’s technical materials are vendor neutral that highlight information that attendees cannot easily find elsewhere.
The workshops enable computational scientists, researchers, analysts, and engineers to develop applications that achieve maximum performance and scalability on Linux clusters of all sizes. System administrators learn about issues related to the administration of Linux clusters supporting secure and reliable, high-performance computing. Prospective users of Linux clusters will find the workshops a detailed and informative introduction to the process of acquiring, configuring, and using Linux clusters.
Each workshop spans a full week and consists of two modules: two days covering systems administration and management issues, and three days devoted to scientific/technical application development and optimization.
During the workshop at NCSA, access will be provided to two exciting new resources -- the Itanium2 and Xeon clusters at NCSA. The 256-node, 1.3GHz Itanium2 cluster is part of the set of TeraGrid resources to be made publicly available in January see: http://www.teragrid.org . The 1,450-node, 3.06GHz, Xeon cluster - known as Tungsten - ranks #4 (9.8 TFlop/s) in the TOP500 list recently released and will initially be made available to users in January (see: http://www.ncsa.uiuc.edu/UserInfo/Resources).
Registration is limited and will close on January 16, 2004. A registration form and additional information are available at:
The LCI provides advanced technical training for those interested in deploying high-performance Linux computing clusters. The group was founded by the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, the Center for High Performance Computing (HPC) at the University of New Mexico, and the Advanced Computing Technology Center (ACTC) at IBM Research. The LCI includes some of the world's foremost specialists in building and deploying Linux clusters at NCSA, HPC@UNM, and IBM.
