TACC-NAG High Performance Computing (HPC) for Managers Institute


Tuesday, September 12, 2017 to Thursday, September 14, 2017


The Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) at the University of Texas at Austin and the Numerical Algorithms Group (NAG) has announced the first TACC-NAG High Performance Computing (HPC) for Managers Institute this September 12-14 in Austin.

This three-day workshop is specifically tailored to managers and decision makers who are using, or considering using, HPC within their organizations. It is also applicable to those with a real opportunity to make this career step in the future.

Topics covered will include strategic planning, technology options, procurement and deployment, people issues, total cost of ownership, performance measurement, and cost/benefit analysis of investing in HPC to support a company or institution’s R&D portfolio. A broad scope of HPC is covered from department scale clusters to the largest supercomputers, consideration of cloud, modeling and simulation to non-traditional use cases, and more. The training has been designed for industry attendees, although academic HPC managers will also find it valuable. TACC and NAG encourage attendees from diverse backgrounds and underrepresented communities.
