The convergence of artificial intelligence (AI) and high-performance computing (HPC) is transforming science and engineering, empowering researchers with new tools and capabilities to accelerate discoveries and innovation.
To realize the full potential of AI for science, the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF) is committed to training and mentoring a diverse, new generation of AI practioners and innovators. Building on the ALCF's robust training program in the areas of AI and HPC, we are hosting a series of hands-on AI for Science courses that will teach undergraduate and graduate students to use leading-edge supercomputers to develop and apply AI solutions for the world's most challenging problems.
The virtual series is designed in two phases and courses are Thursdays from 3:00 - 5:00 p.m. (central daylight time).
Phase I: GPU-accelerated computing
Dates: October 2021 to February 2022
Phase II: AI on ALCF AI-Testbed
Dates: February to June 2022
PHASE I REGISTRATION DEADLINE
Thursday October 21, 2021

FOREIGN NATIONALS: ELIGIBILITY
The following restrictions apply to foreign nationals:
- Foreign nationals from countries that appear on a restricted foreign country listing in section 15 CFR 740.7 License Exceptions for Computers (namely, Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan and Syria) require a very lengthy approval process for access to DOE supercomputers, which will not complete in time for the workshop. Therefore, citizens of these countries are not eligible to apply for participation.
- Foreign nationals from countries other than those listed above will need a valid passport, visa, and supporting documents with an expiration date beyond the end of the training program. Department of Energy policy now require a CV/resume including educational and employment history.
- Your attendance is not confirmed until you receive the "Attendance Confirmed" email from Argonne support staff with the teleconference details.
