High Performance Computing Cluster basic course on 7 June

Did you recently start using the High Performance Computing Cluster (HPC) or are you interested in using the HPC? Join the free half-day course on the basics of the HPC. To be able to follow the course we expect that the participants have basic knowledge of Linux and know about the possibilities of HPC for your research.

Organised by WUR - Facilities & Services and Shared Research Facilities

Wed 7 June 2017 12:30 to 17:00

Venue Orion, gebouwnummer 103

After an introduction to the HPC you will receive tips & tricks on starting and running computing jobs to speed up working with the HPC. The course is organised by FB-IT with contributions from WUR scientists experienced on the HPC.

The course is free of charge and will take place on the 7th of June 2017 in the Orion building, from 12:30 –17.00 hours. If possible, please bring your own laptop for the course work.

High Performance Computing Cluster (HPC)

With the advent of more powerful and effective scientific instrumentation, the complexity and amount of data being generated is exploding. The ability to process, analyse and ultimately act on this data is becoming a critical element of research success. Whether it be used for modelling, simulations, analysis or visualisation of data.

The HPC is designed as a high available and versatile platform. Whether your job needs lots of memory, raw compute power or enormous storage demands, this HPC can handle your requests.
