MCS staff play key role in Argonne high-performance training program

Researchers in the Mathematics and Computer Science (MCS) division at Argonne National Laboratory played a major role in the 2022 Argonne Training Program on Extreme-Scale Computing (ATPESC).

The program offers early career computational scientists two weeks of in-depth instruction on high-performance computing.

In this year’s program, held July 31 to August 12, 2022, MCS division staff gave numerous presentations and led hands-on sessions on key skills and tools for designing, implementing and executing applications on high-end computing systems.

Following is a list of the activities MCS researchers participated in at this year’s training program. For the full ATPESC 2022 agenda, see the website: https://​extreme​com​put​ing​train​ing​.anl​.gov/​a​g​e​n​d​a​-​2022/.
