What’s so super about supercomputing? A very basic introduction to high
performance computing
<http://www.ala.org/lita/whats-so-super-about-supercomputing>
Presenters: Jamene Brooks-Kieffer and Mark J. Laufersweiler
Tuesday February 28, 2017
2:00 pm – 3:30 pm Central Time

This 90 minute webinar provides a bare-bones introduction to
high-performance computing, also known as HPC, supercomputing, and under
many other monikers. This program is a unique attempt to connect the
academic library to introductory information about HPC. Librarians who are
learning about researchers’ data-intensive work should consider
familiarizing themselves with the computing environment often used to
conduct that work.

Academic librarians, particularly, face a landscape in which many of their
users conduct part or all of their research using computation. Bibliometric
analysis, quantitative statistical analysis, and geographic data
visualizations are just a few examples of computationally-intensive work
underway in humanities, social science, and science fields.

Covered topics will include:

   - Why librarians should care about HPC
   - HPC terminology and working environment
   - Examples of problems appropriate for HPC
   - HPC resources at institutions and nation-wide
   - Low-cost entry-level programs for learning distributed computing

The webinar slide set and a handout that includes a HPC glossary of basic
HPC terminology as well as HPC resources will be made available.

*Webinar takeaways will include:*

   - Attendees will learn the basic terminology of high performance
   computing.
   - Attendees will be introduced to the working environment commonly used
   for high performance computing.
   - Attendees will gain information on institutional and national high
   performance computing resources available to researchers.

*Jamene Brooks-Kieffer* brings a background in electronic resources to her
work as Data Services Librarian at the University or Kansas. She regularly
teaches on data management practices to audiences of faculty,
graduate students, and undergraduates. She has engaged library
professionals in many in-person and virtual programs at venues including
Electronic Resources & Libraries, Coalition for Networked Information, and
a Great Plains Network / Greater Western Library Association webinar series.

*Dr. Mark Laufersweiler* has, since the Fall of 2013, served as the
Research Data Specialist for the University of Oklahoma Libraries. He is
currently assisting the educational mission of the Libraries by developing
and offering workshops, seminars and short courses, helping to inform the
university community on best practices for data management and data
management planning. He is the university’s representative as a member of
the Software Carpentry Foundation and is an active instructor as well. He
is a strong advocate of open source software and open access to data.
