Tutorial: XSEDE New User Tutorial

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This tutorial will provide training and hands-on activities to help new users learn and become comfortable with the basic steps necessary to first obtain, and then successfully employ an XSEDE allocation to accomplish their research or educational goals. The tutorial will consist of three sections: The first part of the tutorial will explain the XSEDE allocations process and how to write and submit successful allocation proposals. The instructor will describe the contents of an outstanding proposal and the process for generating each part. Topics covered will include the scientific justification, the justification of the request for resources, techniques for producing meaningful performance and scaling benchmarks, and navigating the XRAS system through the XSEDE Portal for electronic submission of proposals. The second section, "Information Security Training for XSEDE Researchers," will review basic information security principles for XSEDE users including: how to protect yourself from on-line threats and risks, how to secure your desktop/laptop, safe practices for social networking, email and instant messaging, how to choose a secure password and what to do if your account or machine have been compromised. The third part of the tutorial will cover the New User Training material that is been delivered remotely quarterly, but will delve deeper into these topics. New topics will be covered, including how to troubleshoot a job that has not run, and how to improve job turnaround by understanding differences in batch job schedulers on different platforms. We anticipate significant interest from Campus Champions, and therefore we will explain how attendees can assist others, as well as briefly describe projects that are being currently carried out in non-traditional HPC disciplines.
