Tutorials from the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE)

The Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) Project is led by a partnership of 16 institutions. XSEDE will be the most advanced, powerful, and robust collection of integrated advanced digital resources and services in the world. XSEDE project brings advanced cyberinfrastructure, digital services, and expertise to nation’s scientists and engineers. The Office of Cyberinfrastructure at the National Science Foundation (NSF) is funding the XSEDE project for five years, at $121 million. XSEDE will replace and expand the TeraGrid project that started over a decade ago. More than 10,000 scientists used the TeraGrid to complete thousands of research projects, at no cost to the scientists. XSEDE will continue that work, generating more new knowledge in an even broader range of fields.
