Computing in High-Energy AstroParticle Research Workshop (CHEAPR2016)

August 24-26, 2016
Organized by Jordan Hanson

The Center for Cosmology and AstroParticle Physics (CCAPP) at The Ohio State University (OSU) is hosting the CHEAPR 2016 workshop in Columbus, Ohio.

This workshop is centered on sharing knowledge between individuals with a range of experiences in high-performance computing (HPC), analytics, and data analysis, with a specific focus on hands-on practice in data feature selection and genetic programming.

The workshop will include tutorials, lectures, and example code packages meant to educate users on evolutionary algorithms, feature set extraction and selection, and parallel processing in multi-core environments. There will also be an introduction to the Ohio Supercomputing Center (OSC) and XSEDE resources.

Scientific Program

The workshop will take place in the Physics Research Building, conference room 4138.

Coffee breaks and snacks will be provided.
