The Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) is the most advanced, powerful, and robust collection of integrated advanced digital resources and services in the world. XSEDE accelerates open scientific discovery by enhancing the productivity of researchers, engineers, and scholars and making advanced digital resources easier to use.

Scientists and engineers around the world use these resources and services – things like supercomputers, collections of data, and new tools – to make our lives healthier, safer, and better. XSEDE staff will be on hand to assist people with using these resources and services.

XSEDE staff will be at the University of Puerto Rico Mayaguez Campus on December 12, from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and on the University of Puerto Rico Rio Piedras Campus on December 13 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. to raise awareness of the range of resources and services available to faculty, researchers, staff and students to advance scientific discovery.  The schedule of topics will include a combination of the topics below:

  • Overview of XSEDE resources and services
  • New User Orientation
  • XSEDE Campus Bridging
  • Extended Collaborative Support Services and Science Successes
  • Computational Thinking and Adding Computational Science to the Curriculum
  • Introduction to the Intel Xeon Phi on Stampede (only at the RioPiedras Campus)

The specific schedule for each location may be found on the registration website.  Individual consulting will be available. Anyone interested in computational research and the advancement of science is encouraged to come to either event. Free registration is required. Questions may be directed to Kay Hunt (
