Training Overview

We organize and host expert-guided, hands-on workshops providing instruction in the latest tools, computational resources, and services we provide in support of scientific discovery. We also offer videoconferences as a virtual alternative.

A key part of the ALCF outreach mission is to promote our user community's research activities and scientific breakthroughs, and the unique resources and capabilities of the facility itself. In addition to the opportunities for facility users, ALCF staff produces interesting science articles, conducts facility tours, and participates in Laboratory open houses which are available to the general public.

An equally important outreach effort is our leadership and participation in events aimed at promoting diversity at the ALCF. We advertise a wide range of professional opportunities—spanning from summer internships to computational scientist positions—to underrepresented minority colleges and organizations, participate in events such as 'Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day,' and attend the annual Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing conference series.
