XSEDE, along with the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center is pleased to announce the first workshop featuring one of XSEDE’s newest HPC resources, Bridges, on March 31, 2016. This workshop is intended to introduce participants to the power of Bridges and how users can take advantage of Bridges' capabilities to meet the challenges of their research.

This hands-on workshop will explain the allocations process and demonstrate Bridges' unique resources: extremely large shared memory (up to 12TB per node); virtual machines; GPU computing; Spark and Hadoop environments; interactivity; in-memory databases; rich data collections; and graph analytics capabilities.
