High Performance Computing Resume

Internship in HPC?

Starting in 2014, the seminars take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2:10 to 3:10 Eastern Time. No registration is required. The seminars can be viewed online via WebEx or attended in-person on the campus of the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, in the Innovative Computing Laboratory (ICL) conference room 233.

Designed to increase awareness of high-performance computing (HPC) among the academic community, the series addresses subjects ranging from the most basic to the more advanced HPC skills and knowledge. In 2013, for example, students of the series received an overview of the importance of supercomputing, how to acquire compute time via XSEDE (NSF’s Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment) and INCITE (the U.S. Department of Energy’s Innovative and Novel Computational Impact on Theory and Experiment), introductions to HPC and Unix/Linux, Linux shell programming, HPC for engineering and the life sciences, and more.

Don’t wait for the New Year to get started; Twenty sessions from the fall of 2013 have been archived and are available for download, and 41 sessions will be posted in the spring of 2014. The calendar of topics and download links, along with instructions on how to join the seminar courses online, are presented on the seminar page.

Research Project Idea for High Performance Computing?

Hello answers world!
I am kinda at a huge wall that I am trying to climb, but it seems impossible. The hardest part of any project is getting started, and I have searched search engines for hours without really finding anything that suits my needs.
I am in a High Performance Computing class at my college and I must do a research project for the course that is most of the grade, and I don't really know where to start because I can't get a good idea of a good project. Whatever the idea is it has to be implemented in two out of three paradigms: multi-threaded Java, MPI on the cluster (i…

It might be worth checking out projects that involve parallel distributed computing. See the link cited below for examples. Some of the projects involve cryptography, algorithms, modelling, etc. Pick and choose what you like.
The one that I like is called "Folding@Home". Simply put, it's a protein folding simulator. Making it more relevant to your case, it involves heavy optimization of code to enable effective use of GPUs for processing calculations (e.g. Nvidia graphics cards are used) which sometimes allows the GPUs to process some data 20-40 times faster than counterparts CPUs.
