Scaling HPC Education

The MIT SuperCloud and MIT Lincoln Laboratory Supercomputing Center (LLSC) present a special session at IEEE HPEC called Scaling HPC Education. This session is focused on scaling training and education for High Performance Computing (HPC) across many dimentions, including number of users, range of experience, and emerging domains.

Each year we select one or two themes for the session. This year the theme is "Domain Specific HPC Training, Education, and Support". Past themes are listed below.

If you are interested in learning more about the session or would like to speak in this year's session, contact us at
