UL HPC School 2018 (bis)

The UL HPC school (short version) took place in the Belval Campus, within the premises of the new Luxembourg Learning Center on November 23th, 2018 (Learning Hub 2.02)!

Date: November 23nd, 2018 from 9am to 6:30pm
Location: Learning Hub 2.02 (2nd floor)

Having a High Performance Computing platform available for the UL researchers and PhD students 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 eighth edition of the UL HPC School offers instructions and practical sessions on a variety of topics, including:

  • Access to and interaction with the UL HPC infrastructures
  • HPC challenges, especially as regards the storage data management (backups, git, GDPR, quotas)
  • HPC workflow management (for sequential and parallel tasks)
  • Advanced scheduling (on Slurm and OAR)
  • Parallel programming with OpenMP/MPI

Participation was free of charge for UL staff members, partnered public research institutes and students (100€ for externals)

The traditional inaugural keynote presented by Dr. Varrette offered an up-to-date overview of the HPC and Big Data (BD) strategic developments within the University but also at the national and European level.
