2017 AARMS Workshops on Scientific Computing Software
May 27-31, 2017, St. John's, NL, Canada
Tentative PETSc Workshop schedule
- The Software Carpentry Workshop will be held on Saturday and Sunday, May 27-28, in room C3053, starting at 9am. For the weekend, parking is available in Lot 6 (in the courtyard of the Science Building); no parking permits are required.
- The PETSc Workshop will be held on Monday - Wednesday, May 29-31, in room A1045. The workshop will run from 9am - 4:30 pm each day, with a lunch break from noon - 1pm, and coffee breaks at 10:30 am and 2:30 pm.
- The reception will be held starting at 6:15pm on Monday, May 29th, in the Rocket Room at Rocket Bakery & Fresh Food, 272 Water Street.
- For the PETSc Workshop, bring a laptop on which you will either install the software or connect remotely to a system on which you will. In either case, be sure to have access to a working C compiler (recent gcc or clang); if you intend to use PETSc with FORTRAN code, you should have a working FORTRAN compiler as well. If you wish to use PETSc in parallel, you should have a recent MPI implementation (MPICH or OpenMPI). If you wish to use optimized direct solvers, you should also install OpenBLAS on Linux or be prepared to use veclib on OS X.

AARMS (the Atlantic Association for Research in the Mathematical
Sciences), the AARMS Collaborative Research Group in Numerical
Analysis and Scientific Computing, the Centre for Numerical
Analysis and Scientific Computing at Memorial University of
Newfoundland, and the Department of Mathematics and Computing
Science at Saint Mary's University will bring students and researchers
interested in scientific computing to a 5-day workshop in beautiful St. John's, NL, Canada.
The meeting will consist of two independent workshops, a 2-day Software Carpentry workshop, presented by ACENET Research Consultants on May 27-28, 2017, and a 3-day PETSc tutorial, led by Prof. Jed Brown of CU-Boulder, on May 29-31, 2017.
- The 2-day Software Carpentry workshop will be held on Saturday, May 27th, and Sunday, May 28th in room C3053. Details are available here
- The 3-day PETSc tutorial will be held from Monday, May 29th, through Wednesday, May 31st, in room AA1045.
- A reception for both parts of the workshop will be held in the evening of Monday, May 29th, in the Rocket Room (3rd floor) at Rocket Bakery & Fresh Food, 272 Water Street. The reception will start at 6:15pm.
- Jed Brown will be available for consultation on the use of PETSc on Thursday, June 1st, and Friday, June 2nd.
Registration is available here. Registration fees are as follows:
