HPC Workshops

The Division of Information Technology at the University of Maryland has been offering workshops on various High Performance Computing topics since the debut of our "HPC Programming Bootcamp" in 2010. In 2019 and 2020, we have expanded our offerings, trying to make the offerings more varied to better fit the range of needs of our researchers on the cluster; for new users we are offering a series of introductory workshops.

This page presents an overview of the various offerings. Click on the Workshop name for more information.
