It has been used with great success to accelerate real applications within very short development periods. This workshop assumes knowledge of either C or Fortran programming. It will have a hands-on component using Blue Waters at NCSA. Due to demand, this workshop will be telecast to several satellite sites. Please note that the hands-on accounts will be limited to 150 students, available across all sites and awarded by order of Registration.
