1:00 - 4:30 p.m. HPC Breakout Sessions
Special note: Workshop attendees were contacted via email and asked to rank their interest in attending the three Track I and three Track II sessions. After preferences were reviewed, each attendee was assigned to a different session during each of the following times: 1:00 - 2:00 p.m., 2:15 - 3:15 p.m. and 3:30 - 4:30 p.m. All attendees were assigned to their top three session choices.

Track I Discussion of Morning Topics: These breakout sessions are intended to give participants an opportunity for a more intimate and detailed discussion with the morning speakers.  Format will be predominantly discussion/Q&A, so participants should come to the session with topics to discuss and/or questions. Topics could range from technical to career or job-related. Track II Accessing DOE Computing Facilities: These breakout sessions are intended to give participants insight on how to gain access to Department of Energy high performance computing resources.  There will be sessions for people new to high performance computing as well as experienced users looking to scale up their codes.
