      HPC @ TACC | November 1-2, 2023 
      (registration closes at capacity and/or on 10/25/23) 
      This training is virtual / webinar from 10AM CST - 4PM CST 

      In this hands-on tutorial, we will explore methods for running containers on HPC systems including advanced tasks like utilizing GPUs for computation and MPI for parallel jobs Docker to perform multi-stage and multi-architecture builds. 

      - Introduction and motivation to parallel computing, which includes an introductory lab on TACC resources.
      - Edit and compile code, submit jobs to the queue 
      - MPI: beginner and intermediate 
      - Basic concepts of the Message Passing Interface (MPI) library for large scale parallel programming 
      - Interactive combination of lectures and code walk-throughs 
      - HPC tools specifically designed for complex user environments (Lmod, Sanity Tool)
      - Tools for workflow management (ibrun, launcher, launcher-GPU, Pylauncher) 
      - Tools for job monitoring and profiling (Remora, TACC-Stat, core_usage, amask)
      - Other tools per participant interest 
      - MPI with containers 

      Machine Learning | November 6-8, 2023 
      Virtual only / webinar from 10AM CST - 3PM CST 
      (registration closes at capacity) 

      TACC’s Machine Learning training is designed to give participants fundamental knowledge of machine learning (ML) and deep learning (DL) techniques as well as experience with hands-on tutorials running ML and DL workflows on HPC systems. Participants will learn the basics of how to start using the computing clusters at TACC for ML and DL analysis. They will also learn fundamentals and theory of ML and DL techniques, and explore example applications of how ML and DL techniques can be applied on TACC’s HPC clusters. This training is virtual on the following days: 
      Nov. 6: Computing cluster and Python environment at TACC 
      Nov. 7: Introduction to ML, supervised learning methods, and their applications 
      Nov. 8: Introduction to Deep Learning and its applications
