Please use the PRACE ARCHER course registration form to sign up for the workshop.
This course is part-funded by the PRACE project and is free to all.
This workshop is an introduction to using high-performance computing systems effectively. We obviously can't cover every case or give an exhaustive course on parallel programming in just two days of teaching time. Instead, this workshop is intended to give students a good introduction and overview of the tools available and how to use them effectively.
By the end of this workshop, students will know how to:
- Know how to connect to remote HPC systems and transfer data
- Know how to use a scheduler to work on a shared system
- Be able to use software modules to access different HPC software
- Be able to work effectively on a remote shared resource
The material for the second part of this workshop is available at: https://archer-cse.github.io/2019-12-09-epcc-hpcintro/.
This workshop is organised by EPCC in collaboration with ARCHER. ARCHER, the UK's national supercomputing service and PRACE. ARCHER and PRACE offer training in software development and high-performance computing to scientists and researchers across the UK.
For more information on what we teach and why, please see our paper "Best Practices for Scientific Computing".
Who: The course is aimed at graduate students and other researchers. You don't need to have any previous knowledge of the tools that will be presented at the workshop.
When: 10:00-17:00, 9 December 2019, 10:00-16:00 10 December 2019. Add to your Google Calendar.
Requirements: Participants must bring a laptop with a Mac, Linux, or Windows operating system (not a tablet, Chromebook, etc.) that they have administrative privileges on. They should have a few specific software packages installed (listed below). They are also required to abide by Software Carpentry's Code of Conduct and the ARCHER Training Code of Conduct.
Accessibility: We are committed to making this workshop accessible to everybody. The workshop organizers have checked that:
