Train the scientific computing community

CISL provides training opportunities for researchers in the atmospheric and related sciences to improve their understanding and usage of NCAR’s petascale computing and data resources. CISL delivers content synchronously through conferences, workshops, tutorials, webinars, and training classes, and asynchronously through web-based content such as online documentation and recorded lectures.

CISL also leverages the training and student professional development opportunities provided by regional and national HPC consortia such as the Rocky Mountain Advanced Computing Consortia (RMACC) and the eXtreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE).

CISL’s education imperative for workforce training and development is supported primarily by NSF Core funding, with supplemental funding supplied by other sources as noted in the following reports.
