The Linux Cluster Institute is seeking host sites for introductory and intermediate LCI workshops in 2017. We teach how to be a Linux HPC cluster system administrator. Workshops will run Monday-Friday.
Would your institution be interested in submitting a host site application?
The deadline to apply is Mon Oct 10 2016!
Here’s what LCI workshop attendees get from attending:
- learn HPC system administration concepts and technologies and how to apply them;
- get hands-on skills building a small test cluster in lab sessions;
- hear real-life stories and get to ask experts questions in panel discussions.
Host sites are responsible for:
- arranging workshop spaces, meal spaces, lodging, etc.;
- co-leading the planning of the event (as part of the workshop organizing committee);
- helping us to publicize the workshop;
- coordinating with instructors and other workshop personnel (many of whom will be from other institutions);
- conducting the workshop onsite;
- providing lightweight reporting about the workshop back to the LCI.
Hosting an LCI workshop is a rewarding experience and allows you to bring affordable instruction on how to be an HPC cluster sysadmin to your local area.
If you are interested in hosting a 2017 LCI workshop, please complete the following form by Monday October 10, 2016:
We will follow up with potential hosts soon with a second, more detailed application form, to help determine whether
your site is appropriate for an LCI workshop.
The most recent LCI workshop was hosted by UOklahoma in 2015.
