Event Details



A DIGITAL RESEARCH INITIATIVE - A collaboration between the Office of the DVC(R), ICT and the Library, La Trobe’s Digital Research Strategy aims to provide a world-class digital research environment to enable and accelerate new research outcomes through the engagement of researchers with advanced and emerging information and computing technologies and appropriate support services. 



High-Performance Computing (HPC) allows you to accomplish your analysis faster by using many parallel CPUs and huge amounts of memory simultaneously. This 2-day course (11th and 12th July 9.30am - 4.30pm) will introduce you to the Unix environment and show you how to transfer your data onto, and run software on HPC infrastructure. This workshop is presented by our partners, Intersect Australia Limited.

 You’ll learn how to:

  • Use the Unix command line to work with HPC
  • Get your data onto a supercomputer
  • Run analysis on a supercomputer using batch jobs
  • Access the facilities available to you

Even if you’re not ready to use HPC yet, the course makes a great primer for anyone wanting to start using GNU/Linux and other Unix-like systems.

Is your computer's limited power throttling your research ambitions? Are your R scripts hogging your laptop's processor? Is your software crashing because you've run out of memory? Would you like to unleash to power of the Unix command line to automate your analysis and then apply those skills to run your analysis on supercomputers that you can access for free?

Minimum requirements: knowledge of Windows, Mac, or Linux systems

Researchers and PhD students who have not used or have had only limited exposure to high performance computing.
