The Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) is an NSF-funded single virtual organization which connects scientists with advanced digital resources. People around the world use these resources and services — things like supercomputers, collections of data, expert staff and new tools — to improve our planet. Learn how XSEDE can enable your researchhere.
Apratim Bhattacharya has been using XSEDE resources for seven years. He's currently a development specialist in R&D at Praxair in Tonawanda, New York, a 100-year-old company dedicated to making the planet more productive. Currently, he uses XSEDE resources to independently conduct research on Protein folding and protein-protein interactions.
XSEDE Seeking Satellite Sites for Monthly Workshop Series
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:
August 7 OpenMP(Last Call)
September 5-6 Big Data
October 2-3 MPI
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. You, or another representative of your institution, should contact Tom Maiden (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested in hosting a remote site.

Apply by June 22 for Science Gateways Bootcamp to be held August 13-17 in Chicago
Are you building or developing a science gateway (portal, virtual research environment, digital interface)? If so, the Science Gateways Bootcamp could be for you.
Science Gateways Bootcamp: Strategies for Developing, Operating, and Sustaining Your Gateway is a week-long workshop for leaders of gateways who want to further develop and scale their work. Participants engage in hands-on activities to help them articulate the value of their work to key stakeholders and to create a strong development, operations, and sustainability plan. By the end of the Bootcamp, participants will have developed a working hypothesis of their sustainability strategy and identified the key action steps to get there.
The next Bootcamp, offered by the Science Gateways Community Institute, will take place August 13-17, 2018 in Chicago, IL. There is no cost to participate in the Bootcamp. Applications will be accepted through June 22, 2018. Learn more and apply at the link below.
