2020-02-13 Advanced HPC Topics (09:00-12:30)

How to efficiently run large tasks on HPC systems.


About this training
Advanced HPC topics 

Large computing clusters for scientific and engineering calculations are almost all based on Linux servers and batch submission software. In this course a deeper understanding and efficient usage of such systems is achieved. 

Learning outcomes - participants can
  • Understand how HPC systems work
  • Find information about available resources on HPC systems
  • Design and submit efficient computing tasks
  • Run massive parallel tasks
Target group
  • UNIBE staff, students and potential users involved in scientific research or engineering
  • Researchers and engineers wishing to learn how to use a Linux HPC system
  • Prospective or current users of any Linux computing facility
  • Participants must bring own laptops and should have a minimal Linux knowledge (see training Introduction to Linux) and experience with HPC systems (see High Performance Computing training).
  • Activated UBELIX account (campus account needed):
  • The training alternates between short theoretical introductions and online practice.
  • A certificate will be delivered to participants who have attended the whole training.
  • The coaches are local or external experts.
