XSEDE Announcements
XSEDE, Service Providers, and Government Shutdown
A number of members of the community have inquired as to the potential impact of the government shutdown on XSEDE and the services provided by our Service Provider partners. Though NSF is currently closed due to the government shutdown, XSEDE and its partners are operating as normal.
At this point, only an extended government shutdown, exceeding the length of any past shutdown, has the potential to impact services available via XSEDE. No potential impact from the government shutdown is anticipated in the near term. XSEDE and its partners are closely tracking developments and will work to keep services available as long as possible should an extended shutdown develop.
Tune in to Tuesday's ECSS Symposium
Join us next Tuesday, January 15 for our Extended Collaborative Support Service's monthly Symposium webinar! Mats Rynge of USC will present "Searching through the SRA - A focus on the ECSS work" and Jeff Sale of SDSC will present "Hyperglyphs: Pushing the Limits of Glyph Structure to Gain Insight into Large Datasets." Abstracts and meeting coordinates can be found at the link below.
Register for OpenMP workshop next Wednesday, January 16, 2019
XSEDE, along with the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center, is pleased to announce a one day OpenMP workshop. This workshop is intended to give C and Fortran programmers a hands-on introduction to OpenMP programming. Attendees will leave with a working knowledge of how to write scalable codes using OpenMP. This event will be presented using the Wide Area Classroom (WAC) training platform.
Due to demand, this workshop will be telecast to several satellite sites. Click the link below to see the list of satellite locations and register for the training.
XSEDE Cyberinfrastructure Integration updates
Science gateway and application developers can use XSEDE's Web Single Sign-On (Web SSO) service to enable users to sign-on (login) to an application using either campus or XSEDE credentials. This service is based on Globus Auth, an OpenID Connect/OAuth 2.0 service provided by Globus at the University of Chicago.
XSEDE HPC Monthly Workshop Series seeking satellite sites
XSEDE is pleased to announce a regular series of remote workshops on High Performance Computing topics. These hands-on workshops provide a convenient way for researchers to learn about the latest techniques and technologies of current interest in HPC. We are currently accepting satellite sites for:
  • February 12-13 – Big Data
  • March 5 – GPU Programming Using OpenACC
You, or another representative of your institution, should contact us if you are interested in hosting a remote site. Satellite sites MUST be able to provide a facility capable of two-way video for the duration of the workshop. There should also be a full time TA available to assist with local technical issues. An AV system test will be scheduled sometime before each workshop. Failure to complete a successful AV test prior to an event and subsequent AV issues during the workshop my affect the priority level of your site for future events. Address any questions regarding course content to John Urbanic ( ) and questions regarding registration to Tom Maiden ( ).

Apply by Feb. 4 for the 2019 International HPC Summer School Program
Graduate students and postdoctoral scholars are invited to apply for the tenth International Summer School on HPC Challenges in Computational Sciences, to be held from July 7 to 12, 2019, at the campus of the RIKEN Center for Computational Science (R-CCS) in Kobe, Japan.
Applications are due Feb 4, 2019. The expense-paid program will benefit scholars from around the world who use advanced computing in their research. The ideal candidate does not need to be an expert in HPC! More information and how to apply may be found at the link below.
Students and leading computational scientist mentors at the 2018 IHPCSS in Ostrava, Czech Republic.
Apply for funding to promote or learn about a gateway—Open to all researchers & educators!
The Science Gateways Community Institute (SGCI) is offering a   Science Ambassadors   program that will  provide travel support  for those interested in  promoting the use of gateways in research or education or in training others in the use of a gateway.  Five ambassadors per year will receive $1200 each in travel support to either:
  • Attend a domain conference where they promote the use of gateways for research by presenting results achieved through the use of a gateway.
  • Attend a gateway training event to learn how to use a gateway more effectively or learn how to teach others to use a gateway.
  • Promote the use of a gateway in education.
