On-site Workshops—Throughout the year, Livermore Computing (LC) offers on-site workshops focusing on parallel programming, parallel tools, and the use of its High Performance Computing (HPC) systems. Introductory level workshops are intended for new users, with the goals of improving LC user productivity and minimizing the obstacles typically encountered by new users of such complex systems. Introductory level workshops typically include both lectures and hands-on exercises using the actual machines. Other workshops are targeted towards more experienced users and can cover a range of topics related to new technologies, performance/programming tools, ASC cross-platform training, and other topics as requested by LC users, researchers, and staff. These workshops may or may not include "hands-on" exercise time. Most hands-on workshops are held in the Laboratory Training Center. Lecture only training can be scheduled in other venues as needed.

Tri-Lab Cross-Platform Workshops—LC collaborates with Los Alamos National Laboratory and Sandia National Laboratory to develop and deliver cross-platform ASC parallel computing workshops. These workshops can be delivered at any of the Tri-lab sites and can include information specific to more than one ASC architecture. Like the on-site workshops, these workshops typically include both lectures and hands-on exercises using the actual ASC machines.

ASC Alliance Remote Workshops—ASC Alliances are invited to work with LC to deliver workshops at their respective sites. These workshops may be comprised of lectures and hands-on exercises covering any LC ASC platform, or they may also include cross-platform training similar to the Tri-lab workshops.

Suggestions?—LC is interested in what kind of training the user community would like. Please send your suggestions for workshop and/or online tutorial topics to

Training Materials

Most training materials are kept online. They cover a range of topics related to parallel programming and using LC's HPC systems.

User Documentation

Beyond the training tutorials, we also have several user manuals online dealing with a variety of topics.

New Employee Resources

Check out our new employee resources, located on Confluence, a wiki which enables new employee questions and issues to be crowd-sourced.  Also on Confluence is our new acronyms page.  Please contribute to keeping it fresh, as the previous acronyms page was sorely out of date.
