UL HPC School - November 2017
The University of Luxembourg operates since 2007 a High Performance Computing platform which currently features a total of nodes (in practice, computing cores) for a cumulative computing power estimated at TFlops.
The total raw storage capacity shared within the clusters is currently estimated at TB (NFS + Lustre).
- Access to and interaction with the UL HPC infrastructures
- HPC challenges, especially as regards data and storage management
- HPC workflow management (for sequential and parallel tasks)
- Prototyping with Python and Matlab in an HPC environment
- Parallel debugging, profiling and performance analysis
The aim is to cover basic and intermediate-level usage of the platform, Whether you have no HPC experience or are an advanced user looking to refresh and update your knowledge, don’t miss this unique opportunity to learn more about the efficient usage of the system.
Important Pre-registration is required. No on-site registration will be accepted. Pre-registration will be accepted until 10am Wednesday, November 11th, 2017. Registration Fees (100€) apply for UL externals and should be paid prior to the venue.
Thursday, November 9th, 2017, on the Belval campus, Location: MSA 3rd floor, rooms 3.070 and 3.100
All sessions will take place at the Belval Campus.
Important You are expected to bring your laptop for all sessions since there will be no workstation available on site.
