HPC AUTUMN SESSION – Presented by NCI
April 9, 2018 - April 13, 2018| AUD60 - AUD300
NCI is Australia’s most highly integrated, high-performance research computing environment, built to deliver on national priorities and research excellence across the scientific disciplines.
In April 2018, a five day high-performance computing and data training course, the HPC Autumn Session, will be run on campus at The Australian National University.
The NCI HPC Autumn Session is designed as a springboard for postgraduate research students and experienced research staff who wish to learn more about NCI’s Raijin supercomputer and high-performance computing in general.
The Autumn Session will cover key topics including:
- An overview of NCI resources and services
- Linux essentials
- How to use Raijin, including the modules system and PBSPro job scripting
- How to access NCI Data Collections and use virtual infrastructure
- An introduction to parallel programming
- GPU programming essentials
Research students who complete the program will have road-tested experience on Raijin, which can be applied to their own research. Those with prior experience on Raijin are also encouraged to attend the more advanced modules/workshops, e.g. parallel programming and application performance which can be leveraged to improve their research throughput.
All current and future NCI users are encouraged to attend. The Autumn Session will be a great opportunity to meet and work closely with NCI staff.
