Posted on 9/12/2012 1:10:46 PM

John Chrispell and Ed Donley from the Mathematics Department have been accepted as participants in the International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage, and Analysis (SC12) to be held on Monday, November, 12, 2012, as part of the conference’s High Performance Computing Educators Program in Salt Lake City, Utah.

As part of this program, participants will receive and assemble a portable mini-computing cluster (called LittleFe). Chrispell and Donley will also learn about the curriculum modules available for teaching parallel programming, high-performance computing, and how to develop new curriculum modules for the LittleFe/Bootable Cluster CD platform. The LittleFe cluster built during the program will be used to teach high-performance computing in courses at IUP.
