Costs and Scholarships

  • With funding provided by the National Science Foundation through the XSEDE program, with additional funds from NCSI, there is no fee to attend any NCSI/XSEDE workshop this year.
  • Lunch and breaks during workshop hours will be provided to all participants (breakfast and dinner not provided).
  • While most participants are expected to be within commuting distance of the workshop location, a limited number of spaces in each workshop will be available for those traveling to a workshop from a greater distance and who would need housing. For those accepted to a workshop, this housing will be provided at no cost to the participant.
  • Subject to funding, a limited number of travel scholarships may also be available as reimbursements for receipted travel to more distant faculty interested in attending the workshops. The scholarships will provide partial or full reimbursement of travel costs to and from the workshops. Preference will be given to faculty from institutions that are formally engaged with the XSEDE education program and to those who can provide some matching travel funds. Recipients are expected to be present for the full workshop. Those interested in a travel scholarship should first register for the workshop and then complete the scholarship application.
  • No other expenses are covered.

Parallel and Cluster Computing
The parallel computing workshops will focus on using parallel and cluster computing in an educational setting as well as teaching issues in parallel computing. Examples suitable for classroom use will be presented, including both simple codes that can be made available for student modification and more complex examples that use state of the art open source community codes. Participants will be trained in the use of the Bootable Cluster CD computing environment, and will receive copies of the BCCD software for their use. Current protocols for parallel programming will be covered.
