HAL Fall 2019 Training and Hackathons

NCSA is organizing two hackathons during the Fall 2019 semester to engage students and staff in AI problem solving. There will be two-hour tutorials prior to each hackathon to train entrants on the HAL compute clusters that will be used for running hackathon code. The hackathons will be full-day events on October 5-6 and November 9-10. Training and hackathons schedule is provided below.

To sign up for training, just request a HAL account prior to the training session and mention "fall training" when describing how the system will be used in your project. The hackathon projects and signup details will be provided later.
