ACENET Basics Series 1: Introduction to HPC With ACENET and Compute Canada

Tuesday, Jan. 14, 1-2 p.m.

C-3053

The first module of the ACENET Basics Series.

Please register here.

What is high performance computing (HPC) and what can it do for me? How can ACENET help? Used by researchers across many disciplines to tackle analyses too large or complex for a desktop, or to achieve improved efficiency over a desktop, this session takes participants through the preliminary stages of learning about HPC and computing clusters, and how to get started with this type of computing. It then reviews software packages available for applications, data analysis, software development and compiling code. Finally, participants will be introduced to the concept of parallel computing to achieve much faster results in analysis. This session is designed for those with no prior experience in HPC, and are looking for an introduction and overview.

No experience is necessary. A Compute Canada account and laptop are recommended.
