Event description

Description

Your trainer for this workshop is Lev Lafayette, from Research Platforms Services, The University of Melbourne. Bring your own Laptop.

This workshop is being held on Monday 10th July from 10am - 3pm

If your desktop system is too slow for your "big datasets" or the problems too complex, High Performance Computing (HPC) is the tool you need. At the University of Melbourne we have one general purpose HPC
systems, Spartan, which is available to researchers. This introductory course will provide an overview of this systems and the Linux command-line, how to write Slurm script so you can submit data or task parallel jobs, and with plenty of "hands-on" examples of running with research applications. Bring a laptop and a desire to learn about supercomputers.

This event is bought to you by Research Platforms Services

A little bit about us......

We are researchers, training researchers! We get you! and would like to embrace you into our Community. Please feel free to swing by our new space called "Co - Lab", located in the Eastern Resource Centre, Room 329, Level 3 ( Building # 171) You are welcome anytime and we would love to see you there!

Research Platforms provides, builds and maintains ICT infrastructure for researchers, in particular cloud compute infrastructure and data storage infrastructure. Enabling data-driven research and the effective use of IT is at the centre of everything we do. We service more than 3,000 researchers from all disciplines across Parkville, within Victoria, and nationally.We work closely with key research support units including Faculty IT teams, the Melbourne eResearch Group, the Library, and other Infrastructure Services departments.

As well as providing underlying infrastructure services, we also work with researchers to provide a range of training, engagement and community building activities aimed at both maximising usage of the facilities, and maximising the value researchers get from them. By building community infrastructure in this way, we connect researchers with each other, with the supplied infrastructure, and with related infrastructure and services such as NCI, Pawsey, VLSCI, etc.
