When viewing the Technical Program schedule, on the far righthand side
is a column labeled "PLANNER." Use this planner to build your own
schedule. Once you select an event and want to add it to your personal
schedule, just click on the calendar icon of your choice (outlook
calendar, ical calendar or google calendar) and that event will be
stored there. As you select events in this manner, you will have your
own schedule to guide you through the week.
You can also create your personal schedule on the SC11 app (Boopsie) on your smartphone. Simply select a session you want to attend and "add" it to your plan. Continue in this manner until you have created your own personal schedule. All your events will appear under "My Event Planner" on your smartphone.
SESSION: Paving the way to Petascale Computing in the Undergraduate Classroom
EVENT TYPE: Education
TIME: 2:00PM - 3:00PM
SESSION CHAIR: Jennifer K. Houchins
Presenter(s):Jennifer Houchins, Jeff Krause, Bob Panoff
ABSTRACT: The Blue Waters Undergraduate Petascale Education Program, a collaborative effort of the NCSA Blue Waters project and the National Computational Science Institute, recognizes the need for new approaches within the undergraduate classroom in order to promote interest and understanding in petascale computing and its applications. To address this need, the program has been supporting the development of undergraduate curriculum modules that are designed to prepare current and future generations of students with the computational thinking skills, knowledge and commitment to advance scientific computing through the use of high performance computing resources and environments. This session will provide an overview of these efforts and the materials currently available for use in the undergraduate classroom, as well as of materials being developed and possibilities for collaboration.
