HPC Carpentry Workshop

N8 CIR is delighted to support a new HPC Carpentry Workshop initiative.

Taking place on Thursday and Friday 30 & 31 January the two day course has been organised by Mozhgan Kabiri Chimeh of the University of Sheffield. It is being run in collaboration with Women in HPC and the Software Sustainability Institute with the goal of supporting and promoting women to develop the skills needed to use High Performance Computing (HPC) in their research.

The course introduces the basics of HPC and how it can benefit and accelerate research. After this introduction the course will focus on practical activities including remotely connecting to HPC systems and transferring data to them, using the Bash command line, using a scheduler and working effectively on a shared system and using software modules to access different HPC software.

Participants will need to bring a laptop computer with them to the course. Full details of the software requirements can be found via Eventbrite page.

Places on the course are FREE and lunch and refreshments are included. The course is primarily aimed at women and will be taught and supported by an all-female team:

  • Mozhgan Kabiri Chimeh (University of Sheffield)
  • Anna Brown (University of Oxford, University of Southampton)
  • Fouzhan Hosseini (Numerical Algorithms Group)
  • Weronika Fillinger (EPCC)
  • Neelofar Banglawala (EPCC)

For the next two weeks registration is open exclusively to those working and studying at universities within the N8 Research Partnership. Full details of the course, including can be found on Eventbrite here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/hpc-carpentry-workshop-2-days-tickets-80825839261
