Event description

Description

The 2018 NHERI SimCenter Programming Bootcamp will be held July 30 through August 3, 2018, at UC Berkeley’s Richmond Field Station.

The NHERI Computational Modeling and Simulation Center (SimCenter) is hosting a “SimCenter Programming Bootcamp.” The overall goal of the bootcamp is to train NHERI researchers in programming paradigms not covered in traditional civil engineering courseware, but which are needed to advance their capabilities with regard to simulation for natural hazards engineering. The target audience is graduate students, postdocs, and new faculty who are interested in simulating the effects of natural hazards on components, structures, and communities. By the end of the workshop, participants will have a firm grasp of how to build applications that utilize SimCenter products and run on the high-performance computing platform hosted at DesignSafe-CI. During the five-day bootcamp, participants will be instructed by and interact extensively with the SimCenter’s lead development team.

A sampling of course modules to be offered include:

· Programming in C, C++, and FORTRAN

· Developing Applications in C & C++

· Parallel Programming on HPC with MPI

· Web Application Development: UI Design & Qt

· Hands on application development

· Parallel exercises on TACC Stampede (HPC)

Each day’s agenda (8:30am – 5pm) will include instruction, the development of custom capabilities, hands-on coding exercises or roundtables, example applications, accessing HPC resources at NHERI, and discussions on working within NHERI using SimCenter products. Daily homework will be assigned. Refreshments at breaks and lunch will be provided.

An early registration fee ($150) is available until June 22, 2018. After that date, the registration fee increases to $250. Registration closes July 9, 2018 or before if the maximum number of attendees register.

Financial support

Limited domestic travel, lodging, and meal support is available for need-based participants. To request financial support, email <NHERI-SimCenter@berkeley.edu> by May 25, 2018. Graduate students, postdocs, and faculty from under-represented groups are especially encouraged to attend.

This workshop is supported by NSF Award Number CMMI-1612843. Learn more about the SimCenter at https://simcenter.designsafe-ci.org
