CRPC to Help "Retool" HPC Users for Parallelism Apr. 14


Late in 1994, the CRPC (Center for Research on Parallel Computation) was awarded a three-year, $785,000 National Science Foundation (NSF) grant as part of a larger collaborative effort under the NSF Metacenter Regional Alliance Program involving the NSF's four national supercomputing centers and the North Carolina Supercomputer Center (NCSC). This group will design and implement an educational program to introduce the science and engineering community to the use of scalable parallel computer systems.

Through the MRA program, the CRPC can reach a much larger portion of the community of current supercomputing users by using supercomputer center staff trainers to deliver parallel computing educational programs to end users. The MRA program builds upon the success of the CRPC's prototype training workshop for center staff members held in October 1993 at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications.

The CRPC, NCSC and the Metacenter will collaborate to provide curricular materials and training in the use of parallel programming tools and methods to supercomputing center staff, who regularly teach courses and training workshops to supercomputing users. The CRPC and NCSC are working to develop multimedia educational materials that can be disseminated electronically.
