ASU Research Computing is hosting a free, hands-on XSEDE big data workshop for faculty, staff and students who work in high-performance computing.

Date: Wednesday, Sept. 5
Time: 8 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Location: Biodesign Auditorium B105

Cynthia Sagers will join Arizona State University’s Office of Knowledge Enterprise Development in September as vice president of research. With a personal mission of advancing equity, accessibility and excellence in research, she will work to grow and secure research development.

Sagers comes from Oregon State University where she served as the vice president of research. She previously held research leadership roles within University of Arkansas, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the National Science Foundation.

“Cynthia Sagers is a proven leader who has advanced cutting-edge research and scholarship during her roles at Oregon State University, the National Science Foundation and the University of Arkansas,” said Sethuraman Panchanathan, executive vice president of Knowledge Enterprise Development and chief research and innovation officer at ASU. “We look forward to the energy, leadership and initiative she is sure to contribute as ASU’s knowledge enterprise continues to scale rapidly and expand our impact globally.”

Sagers will also be a professor within ASU’s College of Integrative Sciences and Arts.

A beautiful image of cellular phenomena is interesting and informative, but how do you extract quantitative data? This TEC Talk will focus on the effective use of ImageJ, a set of open source tools for analysis of micrographs. Examples will include bright-field, fluorescent, and live cell images. This will be an interactive workshop so attendees are encouraged to bring laptops and questions. Datasets will be available for download. To participate in real time, please download FIJI from: before the seminar. Light refreshments will be provided.

Date: August 21, 2018
Time: 3:00-4:00 PM
Location: Biodesign, lower level AL1-10/14
Sponsoring Core: ASU Bioimaging
Presenter: Jordan Yaron, PhD, expert imaging consultant, Biodesign Imaging Core

TEC Talks is a seminar and workshop series presented by ASU Core Research Facilities.

This short workshop is an introductory overview of the Agave cluster, a high-performance computing resource that can be used to accelerate and/or scale computational research. This will also serve as a how-to session. Attendees are encouraged to bring laptops and preregister for accounts on Agave. Attendees can suggest use cases employing specific software packages. Additional computing resources will also be discussed.

Date: Monday, Aug. 27
Time: noon – 1 p.m.
Location: Biodesign  A L1-10/14

This workshop is sponsored by ASU Research Computing.

ASU Research Computing is hosting a free, hands-on OpenMP workshop conducted by Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) and the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center Aug. 7 at Biodesign Institute Building B, room 105 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Faculty, staff and students who work in this field of research are welcome to attend. 

The OpenMP Application Program Interface provides a portable, scalable model for developers of shared memory parallel applications. This workshop will be presented using the Wide Area Classroom training platform and is intended to give C and Fortran programmers a hands-on introduction to OpenMP programming. Attendees will leave with a working knowledge of how to write scalable codes using OpenMP.
