Event date: Tuesday, 12 June 2018 09:00 am - Wednesday, 13 June 2018 06:30 pm
Place: Belval Campus, Maison du Savoir, 4th floor, room 4.520

The University of Luxembourg organises the 7th edition of the HPC School on 12 and 13 June 2018 in Belval.

The University of Luxembourg operates since 2007 an High Performance Computing (HPC) platform which is currently featuring a total of 662 nodes (in practice, 10108 computing cores) for a cumulative computing power estimated at 346.199 TFlops.The total raw storage capacity shared within the clusters is currently estimated at 8846.4 TB

Having this platform available for researchers and PhD students at the University of Luxembourg is a chance to deeply accelerate their workflow and analysis, however the effective usage of such a complex system requires both talent and system skills to understand the impact of its personal workflow on the global performances of the system. In this context, the HPC team at the University of Luxembourg organises each year an HPC School, which offers instructions and practical sessions on a variety of topics.

For this 7th edition "HPC School June 2018", discussions will focus on: 

  • Access to and interaction with the HPC infrastructures
  • HPC challenges, especially as regards the storage data management (backups, git, GDPR, quotas)
  • HPC workflow management (for sequential and parallel tasks)
  • HPC programming and usage of the main software available on the platform, with dedicated sessions directed towards Matlab/Mathematica, R, Python, OpenMP/MPI, MultiPhysics, Chemistry, Bioinformatics, Big Data analytics, Deep and Machine learning etc.
  • Debugging and profiling
  • Software environment management
  • Virtualisation with containers on the clusters

Whether you have no previous HPC experience or are an advanced user, don't miss this unique opportunity to learn more about the efficient usage of the system.

Pre-registration is required here. No on-site registration will be accepted. Pre-registration will be accepted until 8 June 2018.
Registration Fees (250€) applies for externals and should be paid prior to the venue.
