Fall Workshops for Stampede Supercomputer Launch

In early 2013 Stampede will be available at the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) with a peak performance of more than 2 petaflops from the base Intel Xeon processors and more than 7 petaflops from the Intel Xeon Phi co-processors. The compute nodes are more than 5,000 Dell PowerEdge “Zeus” servers, each of which contains dual 8-core Intel processors and 32 gigabytes of memory. This new system will be available to Cornell researchers through the XSEDE allocation process. The XSEDE Campus Champion at Cornell, Susan Mehringer, can help with the allocation procedure if you need assistance (contact

These one-day training workshops are designed to help Cornell researchers use the Ranger supercomputer now, or to prepare for Stampede computing in the near future. Training topics will include Ranger and Stampede programming environments and parallel programming techniques, OpenMP, and vectorization. Lab exercises will be conducted on Ranger by CAC staff who will also be available to assist users in their code development efforts. This workshop is featured on Cornell Center for Advanced Computing’s home page at

Open to all Cornell research faculty, staff and students with computational or data intensive needs.
