Georgetown University in Washington DC is hosting a free 3-day workshop/
seminar on High Performance Computing, High Throughput Computing and 
Distributed Computing on August 11, 12, and 13.  The main emphasis of 
this workshop is using Beowulf cluster and writing algorithms and 
programs for Beowulf clusters using MPI.

Information can be found at:

The first day is general information, and is aimed at anyone with any 
interest in Beowulf clusters and their use.  We encourage project 
managers, administrators, researchers, faculty, and students to attend, 
as well as programmers who want to get started using their clusters.

The second day will be split beetween lectures and labs on the use of 
Jini in distributed computing (Track 1), and parallel programming (Track 
2).  There will also be a session on using Beowulf clusters as a high 
throughput tool using Condor.  The third day will be an all day lab in 
parallel programming with MPI.  Track 2 assumes a knowledge of either C, 
C++ or Fortran.

Best of all, this seminar is fully funded by Georgetown University's 
Information Systems department, so there is no cost to attend this year!

Seating for day 2 and day 3 is limited.  Contact Arnie Miles at 
adm35 at or Steve Moore at moores at  Hope to 
see you there.
